      You should most definately have folded because you have the worst hand anyone could possibly go all in with. Nobody will be happy going all in vs 2 opponents on such a low card board with just top pair, and seeing as both opponents went all in they probably both had stronger hands than you. If i had to hazard a guess I'd put UTG on a better overpair because of his tightness and because he was pre flop raiser, and MP2 on a set, or maybe even two pair or the nut flush draw, because of his looseness and aggressiveness.

      Hello Royaltramp,

      The raising is likely fine, although sometimes I even prefer to just Call and reevaluate further streets or action, but as we decide to raise then doesn't make sense to continue anymore if we get 3bet, just fold it right there.

      Best regards.
