      BB: $5 (250 bb) no hands
      UTG: $1.96 (98 bb) (67/0) 70hands
      MP: $1.16 (58 bb)
      CO: $4.12 (206 bb)
      BTN: $2.49 (124.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $5.14 (257 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K T
      UTG calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BB calls $0.06, UTG calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.24) 9 T K (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.10, BB raises to $0.20, UTG calls $0.20, Hero raises to $0.78, BB calls $0.58, UTG calls $0.58

      I think should have called here? Multiway theres always a set.

      Turn: ($2.58) 4 (3 players)
      Hero bets $4.28, BB calls $4.14 and is all-in, UTG calls $1.10

      This was towards the end of my session and I think I completely overplayed my 2 pairs here. CHk fold?

      River: ($11.96) 6 (3 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $11.96 pot ($0.30 rake)
      Final Board: 9 T K 4 6
      BB showed Q J and won $11.66 ($6.66 net)
      UTG showed T T and lost (-$1.96 net)
      Hero showed K T and lost (-$5.00 net)

      Hi Seranpoker,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why are we betting so small on a connected board multiway?

      We should bet at least 0.2 here.

      Since we are deep with BB we are overplaying our hand slightly. We 3-bet the flop and then get called twice and ship turn?

      Between two guys what hands do you think they have? There are sets and straights possible and both can have them.

      if we were just with the UTG fish I'd agree with your play here.

      Like this I'd bet enough to put UTG all in on the turn and if BB shoves we can still fold.
