      Hi Mrbeast,

      Preflop: looks fine but since MP2 seems fishy (shorter stack) we could 3-bet preflop to isolate him (for value).

      Postflop: As played I'd bet turn 1/2 pot and ck back river. On the turn you still get called 9x, 88, TT, 66 even 7x.

      Hello. This is very opponent dependant.
      On the flop, i like to raise-fold at this board. Sizing is fine, maybe could be even bigger.
      It is hard to put MP2 to a range without any information, so i assume he calls your raise (getting 2 : 0.65 = 3:1 pot odds) with a set or a pair+gutshot straight draw. Cannot find any OESD he may have and called a raise preflop, neither just a top pair and continue calling if he is not a fish.

      This is reasonable in my opinion:

      Board: 5:spade: 7:heart: 9:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    57.40%  56.95%   0.45% { JdJc }
      UTG+1  42.60%  42.15%   0.45% { TT-55 }


      The part i don't like at all is the checking the turn! I would definitely bet 1/2 pot - fold to a raise. Queen is a safe card for us and he will probably fold any low pair + draw.

      On the river, i would fold too.
