      Yes, c/f indeed. You have only two overcards and against 2 opponents the FE is much smaller than HU. The other bad thing is your position, if you were in position you could consider contibet if you had stats of the villains, but c/f most of the cases.

      On the flop it's a check/fold, quite obviously against two.

      What's more interesting is your preflop action. Wonder if you could've pushed directly preflop. Look: if you raise $0.8 (as you did) there's only $0.95 left in your stack and the pot will be bigger than your stack on the flop if you get called. Also, you're first to act no matter what, so you'll be shoving any flop if called by one oponent, right?

      Pushing pf generates much more fold equity and is generally +EV against every hand apart from AA-QQ range. Pushing on the flop after hitting nothing (and you'll hit the flop in only 1/3 of cases) seems much weaker.
