      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players
      Zoom

      BTN: $3.32 (166 bb)
      SB: $4.69 (234.5 bb)
      BB: $1.86 (93 bb) <20 hands
      UTG+1: $1.96 (98 bb)
      UTG+2: $5.73 (286.5 bb)
      MP1: $2.01 (100.5 bb)
      MP2: $2.48 (124 bb) <20 hands
      MP3: $5.88 (294 bb)
      Hero (CO): $3.98 (199 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9 9
      3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.06, MP3 folds, Hero calls $0.06, 2 folds, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.19) J T 8 (3 players)
      BB bets $0.06, MP2 calls $0.06, Hero calls $0.06

      Turn: ($0.37) Q (3 players)
      BB bets $0.06, MP2 calls $0.06, Hero raises to $3.86 and is all-in, BB folds, MP2 calls $2.30 and is all-in

      River: ($5.15) Q (2 players, 2 are all-in)


      Results: $5.15 pot ($0.18 rake)
      Final Board: J T 8 Q Q
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.18 net)
      MP2 showed J K and lost (-$2.48 net)
      Hero showed 9 9 and won $4.97 ($2.49 net)


      Question:
      I thought afterwards that the shove might be really stupid, since AK is quite consistent with the two villains betting up to this point.
      Was it?
      What would be a better way to play this?

      Hi,

      I think you can raise flop with your oesd and pp. He should bet/fold there enough times. I would not shove turn, since worst hands would likely not call. Making it 0.35$ should make sure that two pair hands would also call your raise

      best regards,
