      UTG: $1.85 (46.3 bb)
      MP: $1.84 (46 bb)
      CO: $2.21 (55.3 bb)
      BTN: $3.74 (93.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $4 (100 bb)
      BB: $3.18 (79.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A Q
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.04, CO raises to $0.08, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.06, BB raises to $0.12, MP folds, CO calls $0.04, Hero calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.40) 8 T Q (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.20, CO raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, BB calls $0.20

      Turn: ($1.60) Q (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, BB folds, CO raises to $1.60, Hero raises to $3.48 and is all-in, CO calls $0.09 and is all-in

      River: ($4.98) 4 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results:
      $4.98 pot ($0.49 rake)
      Final Board: 8 T Q Q 4
      CO showed 8 8 and won $4.49 ($2.28 net)
      Hero showed A Q and lost (-$2.21 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.52 net)


      Am I ever getting away from this hand at any point? Despite the reraise on the flop I was getting good pot odds, especially if the fish in BB just calls.

      Hello pyropove,

      Perfect example why rather should be folding preflop and not turning it into multiway pot. You will very often just overplay your TPTK hand postflop. Fold it preflop to avoid complicated decisions or either 3bet it yourself.

      Best Regards.
