      Hero (UTG): $10.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,6, Hands: 53494
      MP: $10.73 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 10, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 40
      CO: $1.42 - VPIP: 48, PFR: 12, 3B: 6, AF: 3,0, Hands: 42
      BTN: $21.96 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 14, 3B: 4, AF: 4,2, Hands: 235
      SB: $8.90 - VPIP: 35, PFR: 16, 3B: 18, AF: 1,0, Hands: 37
      BB: $11.77 - VPIP: 43, PFR: 21, 3B: 0, AF: 2,0, Hands: 42

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with 8 :spade: 8 :club:
      Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.40, 1 fold, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25) A :spade: 2 :spade: 2 :diamond: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($1.25) 9 :diamond: (3 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero folds, BTN folds

      I suppose that this play is fine and betting here would not accomplish much.

      However:
      1) what should my plan be in this spot with a medium PP(TT–JJ)?
      2) And QQ–KK?

      I think that I could just bet at least one street with anything ranging from TT–KK to either take the pot down or maybe even extract value from FDs. Since BB seems loose a valuebet is perhaps likely. I could also just check my QQ–KK and see how everyone else reacts.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Well, they ain't much different being in multiway pot where it's very likely one of them could easily have the Ace. :) That's the difference in those hands, just maybe stronger overpair but you are mainly getting called still from better hands or draws.

      Best Regards.
