      UTG: $31.75
      CO: $19.06
      Hero (BTN): $28.99
      SB: $4.90
      BB: $20.54

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is BTN with Q :spade: Q :club:
      UTG raises to $0.70, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.70, SB calls $0.60, 1 fold

      Flop: ($2.30) K :diamond: T :heart: 8 :club: (3 players)
      SB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($2.30) 7 :diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, UTG bets $1.20, Hero calls $1.20, SB calls $1.20

      River: ($5.90) 2 :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks

      I decide to call preflop instead of 3 betting since i have position, the shortie in BB might come along with a wider range and also I dont want to isolate myself vs better hands vs the PFRs UTG range.

      I decide not to bet this board when checked to. I don't think i can get value from worse 3way, and if i can i can get it on later streets. I'm also not super likely to be outdrawn here. (have the blockers for a straight) so i decided to keep the pot small.

      When he best half pot here i think he could have some kind of T, maybe a Jx type of hand or just pure air or some K going for pot control. So i decide to call here once with the intention of folding the river if he bets.

      Good play bad play? How would you have done?

      Hello RainbowPonny,

      While even being a bit deeper you could also 3bet there but neither ain't the flatting wrong. But I would most likely still bet the flop already and maybe even protect our hand.

      Best Regards.
