It is $3.30 KO MTT with around 450 runners. 10mins regular blind structure and 3000 starting stack. It also has $0.50 bounty on every player.

Should I fold the turn to this insane action, does one of them has here or just stupid flush draws or random X?

Nuts are 97, not T7.
From my point of view, it is possible for the small blind to enter a pot with 97, not a big sample size but I don't think Angelika will open raise 97s from UTG+1. That being said, there are a lot of over pairs, sets, flush draws and 7x in both their ranges (maybe not over pairs for the small blind). Also that min-raise, only 330 over the last bet from both of them, doesn't look like nuts for me, only looks fishy.
Given the stage of the tournament, I like to shove here.

Hi adikumar2010!

The problem with this hand is definitely on the turn. When I complete my straight and there are two flush draws available, I absolutely cannot flat the 330 bet. I need to raise it and I need to raise it enough to price out the flush draws. With 3 opps, I need to raise by 3/4 pot. If I call or raise to less, the opps can be getting the correct odds to stay in the hand and outdraw me and if I do so and lose, it’s my own fault that I lose the hand.

If I raise and someone wants to come over the top, I’m calling as I’m getting the correct odds to get my chips in. Yes, I have the second nuts, and 79 is definitely in the opp’s range (definitely more likely for Nico to have it than the UTG raiser)… but this is what will happen continually in family pots. There is one hand that can beat me and plenty of 2 pair combinations, sets or draws that I’m ahead of. If they have it, so be it, it’s why I need to be following correct bankroll management.

As played, I shouldn’t be in this situation, but due to the flat and two min raises, I’m only left with one option and that is to shove… a play I shouldn’t need to be making if I play the earlier part of the turn better.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

P.S. This is not insane action. It’s a bunch of abnormally small bets and raises from players that most likely don’t know any better.

You can't look at one specific hand. You need to look at the opps entire ranges.
