      Results below:

      Hero had A, A (one pair, Aces).
      MP3 had A, Q (one pair, Queens).
      Outcome: Hero won $11.60

      I didnt like the way I played this hand at all but not sure were I should of altered the play, I end up being pot commited and shoving vs 3 players.

      On the flop against so many players I believe maybe a full pot bet would of been better for protection, but the board was so dry I didn't feel it was necessary with the only real draw being JT. I was either way ahead/way behind.

      On the turn I had three callers. There were not any real draws that I could see either, JT & JTs being the most obvious monster draw. All others were gutshots which I feel I didnt need to protect against as much, maybe 67s but does that call the flop? And two pair combo's seemed unlikely.

      I wanted to protect my hand on the turn which meant I was going to be pot commited so thought it would be better to get in first. But what hands would call that bet? I figured KK, AQ, KQ, JTs, 67s, that I'm ahead of, AA for the split, or sets that I was behind to.

      Any ideas where I should alter my play to avoid this happening again.

      Hello kenny0503,

      Doubt that it's going to be a huge mistake if you even shove like that. But I would tend to Bet a bit smaller like $2,30 and shove the river. At least allows them to Call with a lot worse. If they are calling with a draw they are making a mistake anyways.

      Best Regards.
