      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with T:heart: , T:spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 4 folds, SB calls $0.17, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.60) 8:spade: , 6:spade: , Q:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.60) Q:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60, SB folds.

      River: ($1.80) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.05, Hero calls $0.05.

      Final Pot: $1.90

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two-pair, queens and tens (Th Ts)
      BB shows three-of-a-kind, queens (Qh 9d)

      BB wins with three-of-a-kind, queens (Qh 9d)

      I think checking the flop agaisnt 2 players was right, because I thought if I get called I cant realy define there hand appart from a FD. When the Turn pairs Qs i feel my hand is preety safe so calling with the intention of calling a moderete sized bet on the river. There River bet is strange and fishy so I just decided to call, because I didnt see a worse hand calling a raise.

      Hi,

      I agree in position on this flop you can maybe induce some kind of (semi)bluff on the turn or if not go for value you yourself - so checking behind is good. But betting is also acceptable.

      On turn I call too - with same thought process as you for calling river

      On this river just call - like you said no value in raising.
