      Hero (SB): 432.88 BB
      BB: 100 BB
      UTG: 83.36 BB
      MP: 107.92 BB
      CO: 58.48 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has Q:spade: Q:club:

      UTG raises to 2 BB, fold, fold, BTN calls 2 BB, Hero raises to 9 BB, fold, UTG calls 7 BB, BTN calls 7 BB

      Flop: (28 BB, 3 players) J:diamond: K:club: 3:club:
      Hero checks, UTG checks, BTN bets 16 BB, Hero calls 16 BB, UTG calls 16 BB

      Turn: (76 BB, 3 players) 9:diamond:
      Hero checks, UTG checks, BTN checks

      River: (76 BB, 3 players) 4:spade:
      Hero checks, UTG checks, BTN checks

      Hero shows Q:spade: Q:club: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 18%, Flop 7%, Turn 10%)
      UTG shows K:heart: K:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Kings) (Pre 54%, Flop 90%, Turn 90%)
      BTN mucks A:heart: 2:heart: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 28%, Flop 3%, Turn 0%)
      UTG wins 72.2 BB

      UTG 49 hands, 61VPiP.
      BTN 850 hands, VPiP 20, PFr 18.

      is flop call ok? I see it as total bluff, I dont think he ever calls 2BB and than sqeeze with Kx, simillary with JJ. and he can bluff often because both players checked and he is BTN.
      I planned to call him once and fold if he bets again.
      UTG also, calls, so I planned to fold to any further bet. Is it ok?

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine but can be even larger at 10-12 BB

      Postflop: You didn't post any info on BTNs postflop aggression or what you've seen him do. Since we are 3-way I wouldn't expect him to bluff by default (especially with fishy guy in the pot)). I do expect him to bluff some amount of the time or semibluff and thin value bet with a hand like AJ.

      As played I'd ck it down as well. On the river there may be a question of a small bet/fold for thin value versus Jx/TT maybe Ax but checking is probably best.

      Also, on the flop, without info on BTNs aggression I would bet/fold 3-way.
