      IPoker, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      SB: $2.60 (65 bb)
      BB: $3.18 (79.5 bb) 48/0/0 over 21 samples
      UTG: $2.20 (55 bb)
      MP: $2.66 (66.5 bb) 48/0/4 over 24 samples
      CO: $2.69 (67.3 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $5.30 (132.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T J
      UTG calls $0.04, MP calls $0.04, CO calls $0.04, Hero calls $0.04, SB completes, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.24) Q T T (6 players)
      SB folds, BB bets $0.16, UTG folds, MP calls $0.16, CO folds, Hero calls $0.16

      Turn: ($0.72) 2 (3 players)
      BB bets $0.08, MP raises to $0.16, Hero ??

      I didn't raise on pf, because I thought this hand would be good to play multiway pot, and I could see the flop cheaply.

      But then, I think I should bet bigger on the flop though instead just called.

      With it being a family pot, I can understand the pf limp, but I prefer betting, especially with all the dead money in the pot already.

      On the flop, I would bet. You have a strong hand, though not the nuts, but the board is still quite wet with flush and straight draws. And with two other people in the hand, I'd rather try to thin the field.

      As played, on the turn, both players are giving you great odds to draw to a full house, but you still might be ahead. I'd opt for a 3B/f but with a bet that is actually a large fraction of the pot (unlike the two villains small bets).

      I prefer folding JTo here although we are given pretty good odds.

      As played, I prefer raising on the flop and playing for stacks.

      On the turn, I'd call and try to get to SD as cheap as possible.
