      BTN: $4.08 (81.6 bb)
      SB: $2.51 (50.2 bb)
      BB: $6.88 (137.6 bb)
      UTG+1: $3.15 (63 bb)
      UTG+2: $5 (100 bb)
      MP1: $5.72 (114.4 bb)
      MP2: $9.87 (197.4 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $9.58 (191.6 bb)
      CO: $5.43 (108.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A K
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 raises to $0.15, MP1 raises to $0.45, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0.45, 4 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.42) 6 T A (3 players)
      UTG+2 bets $1.02, MP1 calls $1.02, Hero raises to $8.85, UTG+2 calls $3.53 and is all-in, MP1 calls $4.25 and is all-in

      Turn: ($16.51) 3 (3 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($16.51) 7 (3 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results:[spoiler] $16.51 pot ($0.69 rake)

      Both UTG+2 and MP1 are tight players. My reasoning for pushing the flop was:
      UTG+2 would push preflop with KK or AA, he probably holds QQ, or a strong ace, he wouldn't bet out with QQ, so that leaves a strong ace. MP1 is verytight and would not 3bet with a strong ace. I'm sure he has KK or AA, but since I think UTG+2 is holding an ace, and he's only calling the flop-bet, I'm guessing kings.
      I'm quite sure I'm ahead at the moment, but if another club would come, I'm dead.

      Is the push a good move?

      Hello DucksEatFish,

      Preflop: Fold it preflop vs the 3bet. You can't just Call here and expect to get paid always, even if you hit you will never be sure if you are ahead. Especially you saying he has KK/AA in his 3betting range. :P

      As played
      Postflop: Fold it. :) You don't have that good equity here even once you hit your ace. You should be already against a very strong range and at the best just flipping vs an Ace cause it most likely is also having the . Plus the UTG donk is also rather strong, could even be vs sets.

      Best Regards.
