      I might be inclined to push preflop. Villain #1's call of Villain #2's push is not a very strong play at all, and we have a good hand. A squeeze-play could work very well here, and QQ is a far stronger hand heads-up than 3-way.

      Absolutely bet the flop. You're in position with only one over card and the action checks to you as the pre-flop raiser is a must c-bet situation.

      There's too much money involved already, a c-bet could scare off villain, if he calls, your hand actually improves with the A:spade: , giving you a draw to the nuts.

      At higher limits or with better reads I might play this hand as you did, but at this limit I would likely go broke here.

      You can´t shove pf, since lucktoome bet was only 0,4$ more than hero re-raise.
      But I would shove flop.
      He checked to me, so I have no reason to believe thah he has me beat. I don´t want to give him free cards and he might call with worse hands (like flushdraw or smaller pp-s)

      Thanks for advice!
      And don't you think my raise pre-flop was too big? (2,5$ after a villain betting 0,5$, and another one calling).
