      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG1:
      $5.07
      UTG2:
      $1.17
      MP1:
      $5.00
      MP2:

      MP3:
      $3.95
      CO:

      BU:
      $0.00
      SB (Hero):
      $8.56
      BB:
      $5.00


      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, J.
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 calls $0.05, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.25, MP3 calls $0.25.

      Flop: ($0.95) Q, J, T (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, MP2 calls $0.60, MP3 calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($2.75) 9 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $2.75, MP3 raises to $3.05, Hero folds, MP2 calls $0.30.

      River: ($8.85) 5 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $8.85.

      The flop is soaking wet, so I should bet more, shouldn't I?

      On the turn, one of the draws gets there, and I'm still against two opponents. Is there any point doing anything other than giving up here? I have ten outs.

      Hello fryandspicy,

      Preflop: You could even raise it bigger here, ~$0.35 because of being OOP.

      As played
      Flop: I'd likely also bet a bit bigger, ~$0.85 or something similar, just because it's way too draw-heavy.
      Turn: Check/Fold is likely better against those shoves. Nice fold!

      Best regards.
