      PokerStars - $0.10 NL ZOOM - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $10.12
      SB: $9.90
      BB: $10.00
      UTG: $10.00
      UTG+1: $47.89
      UTG+2: $10.00
      MP: $11.80
      Hero (MP+1): $17.17
      CO: $4.06

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has J:diamond: A:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, MP raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, fold, fold, SB calls $0.35, fold

      I call because I am ahead of his (range ~20% PFR at the time) and in position.

      Flop: ($1.30, 3 players) Q:spade: K:heart: 4:spade:
      SB checks, MP bets $0.70, Hero raises to $2.10, fold, MP calls $1.40

      I have gutshot, an over and backdoor flush draw. I would make this move frequently if it was 1 vs 1 but is this play too fancy in a 3 way pot?

      Turn: ($5.50, 2 players) 2:club:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      I check because I don't see him folding anything here on the turn because of the 2.

      River: ($5.50, 2 players) 9:spade:
      MP checks, Hero bets $3.30, MP raises to $9.25, fold

      I go for this raise because I really repped the flush with the aggression on the flop. Is the sizing ok? Obviously when he reshoves i have to fold.

      MP wins $11.56

      Is this type of play just too fancy for NL 10 and 3 way?

      He open raise from MP so he will mostly hit a KQx suited board more or less.
      You don't say nothing about opponent. Is he capable of folding KT, AQ, QJ?
      More players aren't at least on flop...

      SB- A player who is 95% set mining with a small PP. I had lots of reads on him, and he plays very face up.

      MP- A player who has a 25/15 range but very low WTSD (20% or so), so I figured I could get him off the QJ, KT, KJ type of hands.

      Hello FlashDavin,

      Preflop: While having so many opponents behind you is calling very bad, AJo isn't good for multiway pots. Either 3bet it or just fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: Why would you raise it ever with just a GS? Why are you even leveling too much yourself here, just fold it, worst flop ever to raise while also being multiway pot.

      Best Regards.
