      Nothing on villains.

      A call here is fine when I have posistion? If I was in SB a 3B would be fine too?

      I was tempted to Raise the Flop but this may induce UTG to push, I have good enough odds to call but it's best to keep the pot multi-way to potentially earn more? What if both villains where 100bb deep?

      Should I have pushed River?

      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: With two posters we should raise this 100% of the time. Those guys have a range of 100% (same as them being in the BB). I'd just make it 6x or so and try to isolate one of them.

      As played calling flop/turn is fine to keep as many people in the pot and on the river I'd prefer a shove on the river because no lower flush folds, sets, 2p or straights.
