      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with Q :heart: K :heart:
      UTG calls $0.10, MP raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, 3 folds, UTG calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.35) J :heart: 3 :heart: 4 :club: (3 players)
      UTG checks, MP bets $0.90, Hero calls $0.90, UTG folds

      Turn: ($3.15) J :spade: (2 players)
      MP bets $2.20, Hero folds

      Not a cool spot really on the flop with the shortstack still left to act but I suppose that I was sort of asking for it with the flop call. Still, I think I played this correctly. It's not like the shorstack is always going to be aggressive (although he has shown that aggression is something he is capable of). Still not a comfortable call.

      I would say it is more standard 3-bet spot with KQs, since UTG limping range is very wide, MP isolation range is also wide and KQs plays fine even in 3-way 3-bet pot. I would prefer raising flop 2.6$ and going with my hand. MP is very likely c-betting most of his raising range and UTG would very often just c/f.
      MP is sometimes barreling that turn card with air, but since now your K or Q outs might not be good I think you can consider folding, although being ip I would likely call again.
      Your K and Q might be good, you´re ahead against lower flushdraws and sometimes he is 2 barreling air which he would give up on the river

      best regards,

      Hello Avatars91,

      Don't really see any problem in your play here, doubt that we have much fold equity on the flop and therefore I'd play the same way. Well played!

      Best Regards.
