      PokerStars - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 9 players

      UTG+1: $10.00
      UTG+2: $4.10
      MP: $17.95
      MP+1: $3.45
      CO: $10.78
      BTN: $7.16
      Hero (SB): $9.90
      BB: $14.53
      UTG: $10.51

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has 3:heart: 3:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, MP raises to $0.30, MP+1 calls $0.30, fold, BTN calls $0.30, Hero calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($1.50, 5 players) 4:spade: 7:spade: 3:spade:
      Hero checks, BB checks, MP bets $0.20, MP+1 raises to $2.00, BTN calls $2.00, Hero raises to $9.60 and is all-in, fold, fold, MP+1 calls $1.15 and is all-in, BTN calls $4.86 and is all-in

      Turn: ($18.57, 3 players) 5:heart:

      River: ($18.57, 3 players) 2:heart:

      The continuation bet was puny and I know the villain who raised the cbet fairly well; he's kinda loose and could easily raise with overpair, top pair or even overcards with or without a flush draw. The second was unknown and by flat calling I assumed he was on a flush draw.

      I would like to know if the shoving was correct or should I almost always expect to be behind on situations like these?

      Hi Boozaf,

      Preflop: Looks fine

      Flop: Considering both MP+1 and BTN are shorter guys we can assume they are both fishy.

      Because of your reads on MP+1 and because BTN is shorter we can assume that we are in decent shape here. Of course they will ocassionally have made flushes and/or better sets (even some straights).

      Homework for you: set up equilab with the board and 3 different players and see how we do vs some ranges you'd assign them.

      Before you hit the evaluate button take a guess as to how big your equity will be.
