Preflop, this is a really marginal call. Multiway like this, I'd much rather 3-bet or fold and not call a raise as it's too easy for me to be dominate and I'm also out of position, which is a huge disadvantage.

It's better to just muck here and look for a better spot, and not leak off chips.

Not a chance. The bet is way too big. With a gutterball and 2 overs, I have 10 outs IF all of them are good (most likely not). Even if they are good, my hand is worth 20% equity (most likely 3 of my outs, one of the overs) will be counterfeited by one of the opps, so I'd count my hand as 14% equity.

To call, I need to put 750 into a pot that will be 3000 (25%).

This means that each and every time that I would call, I'd LOSE 11% of my chips... so it's an easy muck.

I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead and expecting to gain chips, not when I'm expecting to lose chips.
