      Poker Room skin
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.15/$0.25
      9 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $11.95
      UTG+1: $24.85
      MP1: $26.45
      MP2: $13.25
      MP3: $25.05
      CO: $23.10
      Hero: $24.60
      SB: $26.30
      BB: $29.30

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is Button with K Q
      UTG calls, 5 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, SB calls, BB folds, UTG calls.

      Flop: J K T ($4, 3 players)
      SB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $3, SB calls, UTG calls.

      Turn: A ($13, 3 players)
      SB checks, UTG bets $1, Hero ?.

      Is it ok to push? I put villain on flush draw anyways! And what about preflop and flop bet? I should bet pot the turn, right? But changes anything after all...

      Don't push the turn if you think either villain will fold a two-pair type hand here. I'd just make it $11 or so. Pushing is fine versus looser villains though.

      Pre-flop is fine but I'd make the flop bet towards the high end of my range ie.$3.75/4.

      What Nunki said, 11 $ is fine.
      Normally I'd advise a pot size raise, but given that the implied odds are bad with low remaining stacks, a raise to 11 $ should be enough to make their call EV-

      I raise to 12$ or so - just enough to destroy their odds for chasing a FD, but often get calls from these draws (that's what you want...).
