      Hello CraiGDaniel,

      Preflop: Starting from here, basically having 2 limpers and being OOP, I would even advice raising a bit bigger ~$0,14.
      Flop: Your CBet here is way too small, you basically telling that you have a weak hand, I'd rather do it like $0,16 at least.
      Turn: I'd actually bet here as well a bit bigger like $0,30. And after we get even raised there then I don't think that we beat a lot of his range. He basically can't really have any kind of draw with the K or whatsoever while we even are holding it. And we need like 40% equity here to go broke profitable.

      But against, lets say this range:

      Board: 3:club: 9:diamond: T:club:  K:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    74.34%  74.34%   0.00% { TT-99, 33, KTs-K9s, K3s, QJs, T9s, KTo-K9o, QJo, T9o }
      UTG+1  25.66%  25.66%   0.00% { AcKc }

      We can't really go broke, we ain't getting the equity and therefore I'd say rather fold the hand.

      Best regards.
