      Hand converted with online hand converter:
      Play hand
      €0.01/€0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Known players:
      MP2 = (€2.39)
      MP3 = (€0.70)
      CO = (€2.92)
      BU = (€1.97)
      SB = (€2.13)
      BB = (€1.92)
      UTG1 (Hero) = (€5.79)
      UTG2 = (€1.89)
      MP1 = (€1.69)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with A, A.
      Hero raises to €0.08, 2 folds, MP2 calls €0.08, MP3 calls €0.08, 2 folds, SB calls €0.07, BB calls €0.06.

      Flop: (€0.4) 5, Q, J (5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets €0.38, MP2 calls €0.38, MP3 folds, SB calls €0.38, BB calls €0.38.

      Turn: (€1.92) 3 (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets €1.18, MP2 folds, SB calls €1.18, BB raises to €1.46(All-In), Hero calls €0.28, SB calls €0.28.

      River: (€6.3) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.
      Final Pot: €6.3.

      Results :
      BB shows a flush, jack high(7 8).
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and jacks(A A).
      SB shows two pairs, queens and jacks(Q K).
      BB wins with a flush, jack high(7 8).

      I betted big on the flop to protect my hand from diamond flush draw and QJ straight draw, but I get called by 2 people, giving BB favorable pod odds for his flush draw.

      My opinion is that I betted too big on the turn when I think I should've gone for a 2/3 of a pot sized bet/fold.

      Am I analyzing that right ?

      Hello elda420,

      Check behind the turn! You are most of the time there against flush! Just think yourself what else could 3 other guys Call there? Can't be that none of them didn't have a FD.

      Also you could CB a bit smaller on the flop so you wouldn't build up the pot too huge.

      Best Regards.
