Looks like the raising could get out of hand ( eg we call, utg+2 reraises, CO pushes).

Well, let me put in a guess. Suppose UTG+2 has AK or AQ and CO has 99-QQ. How good is my AK then?

i do the same early level, following a raise and a reraise. UTG+2 pushing back over is the first concern. facing a most certain c-bet and a whiff doesn't warrant the risk here on this one. not to mention the off chance we're still behind on an A or K flop.

this looks standard to me at any buyin over 55. the minraiser almost certainly has us beaten or tied.

well you either push or fold. with a raise and a reraise some one has at least a pair. so at best you'll have a coin flip amusing you dont go against KK AA. you have 960 in chips so you dont need to get involed at all, so either raise or fold

I would call this but I don't mind folding, either. If you were the SB the fold would be super easy.

Easy fold. You are sandwiched between two players who like their hand, and the only flop you are going to feel good about is QJT.

Accept the $EV from one of these players losing chips and move on.

exactly why I don't like calling here...

I'd fold this in a sng, but probably not in an MTT.
