      A9s on button 2 raises from mp2 and mp3, i dont like calling with A9s so i 3bet,
      with blockers to AAetc.

      was hoping both would fold, but they both call.
      I usually carry on with a %50 c-bet against 0ne player here, But i had 2, and decided to c-bet anyway, i had to pair top kicker

      mp2 calls and mp3 folds, the turn hits the range i had villain on QQ sort hand, i wasnt sure to double barrel the Q coz i could have it myself, plus i picked up nut flush draw, i think if i bet the Q im too pot commited to check blank rivers?

      sry didnt have any specific reads, viallain was playing a tourney and this table (prolly bad to 3 bet/squeeze light this guy)

      (edit) also sry i just started usuing sidekick, theres a hand i cant find where i raised a flush draw on flop, any idea where it can be?

      While calling in SB is usually not ideal,
      -3 of you are deep
      -Not sure how wide their ranges are

      Thus calling is the safer option IMO.

      When MP2 calls, we can safely put him on a pocket pair from 66-JJ (cos people don't usually 4bet JJ esp in fullring micro limit games). I think checking the Turn is definitely the right play, he probably isn't folding TT and JJ, and I think he folds 88 and 77 very often so no value from worse, and we don't bluff out better (unless we wanna bluff shove the River.

      River is kind of interesting. With the top kicker to the 9, I think he may bet larger with TT and JJ after the Queen paired. I'm not too sure if you can raise for value, but if you do, make it 70cents and pray you get called by 88/77/66/44.
