      Dont know what line is best on flop vs 2 players ?
      I think bet /fold is best cause they can call with hands that i have lot off equity against.
      C/ raise/ shove seems to me like over play off my hand , but i considered c/c line . Problem is that if both villains and me call flop pot would get so inflated that on turn i would have to go all inn any way and if i dont inprove i am in bad shape...

      Let's analyze the various lines.

      1) Betting - I think your immediate fold equity is really low. We must shove most Turns in order to make this profitable
      2) Check/Raise - If I check/raised I would just check/push. I think pot is already so huge with 3 people inside. I would also not want to have a small check/raise bluffing range here so I think we should just check/push our entire semi-bluffing and value range. I would take this line with QQ and maybe JJ some % of the time.
      3) Check/call - May be an option if the bet sizes are really small. But I think if there's a lot of dead money in the pot we are probably better off check/pushing. Check/calling is favoured when bet sizes are smaller and stacks are relatively deeper.

      I think I prefer option 2.
