      MP2: $19.59 (195.9 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $12.31 (123.1 bb)
      MP3: $2.85 (28.5 bb)
      MP1: $6.15 (61.5 bb)
      SB: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $5.85 (58.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q A
      MP1 calls $0.10, MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0.50, MP2 calls $0.50, CO calls $0.50

      Flop: ($2.55) 3 A 9 (4 players)
      MP1 checks, MP2 checks, CO bets $1.21, Hero calls $1.21, MP1 calls $1.21, MP2 folds

      If there were not MP2 in the pot, i guess should have raised here.

      Turn: ($6.18) 9 (3 players)
      MP1 checks, CO bets $2.94, Hero raises to $5.88, MP1 calls $4.34 and is all-in, CO calls $1.10 and is all-in

      I don 't think i can fold. Also, if i just call and MP1 raises i will still have to call such a small bet.

      River: ($18.90) K (3 players, 2 are all-in)

      $18.90 pot ($0.94 rake)
      Final Board: 3 A 9 9 K
      Hero showed Q A and lost (-$6.15 net)
      MP1 showed 9 T and won $17.96 ($11.81 net)
      CO mucked J A and lost (-$5.85 net)

      I had only 20 hands of MP1 and CO, something like 40/8 loose passives both of them.
      Do you think with an SPR=1-3 is it profitable to go all-in on the flop vs 2 shortstacks? Or it applies only vs 1 opponent?

      I raise larger to 70 or 80 cents preflop. Both of them are huge calling stations so i want to ensure that we get it headsup.

      On the flop, no reason to raise. Just call on every street and bet when hecked to. 9 is kind of a bad card since i think these loose passice types are certainly capable of calling flop w 9x to hit trips or 2pair but i cant fold here with a hand as strong as aq.

      Board is so dry so i dont think you should raise.
