      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with K, A.
      Hero raises to $0.08, UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.08, MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.42(All-In), 4 folds, Hero calls $0.34, MP1 raises to $0.54, Hero calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($1.53) 3, 5, 3 (3 players)


      Turn: ($1.53) Q (3 players)


      River: ($1.53) 6 (3 players)


      Final Pot: $1.53.
      Results follow:

      MP1 shows a pair of threes(A 2).
      Hero shows a pair of threes(K A).
      MP3 shows two pairs, queens and threes(Q A).

      Hero wins with a pair of threes(K A).
      MP3 wins with two pairs, queens and threes(Q A).



      Stats put him on a 10% 3 bet, though only over 50 hands. Did I make the right decision to call, should I have raised to isolate so to stop MP1s second push? and should I have even called that?

      AK is way ahead shortstacks shoving range, so I´d not fold there AK.
      I would personally isolate MP3 shove with AK, since I don´t really want that MP1 shove there smt like 55. As played: you also have to call MP2 shove, since his shoving range is also very wide.
