      BU: VPIP: 14, PFR: 11, 3B: 4, AF: 1,0, Hands: 63
      BB: VPIP: 12, PFR: 8, 3B: 2, AF: 3,0, Hands: 155

      Against 1 player I'd have checked back the flop and bet turn and river, since they are both nitty players and I don't see 3 streets of value.
      However we were 3 and I was in a sandwich.
      It's rare to find myself in such a position so I wasn't sure on what to do.

      I bet Flop to try and isolate but this doesn't happena and they both call.

      On Turn I guess I do another attempt on blank but that's not too wise.

      On River I hope for a free showdown but doesn't happen.

      Hi.

      I think this is an easy check/fold. Both of them are really tight and I don't really see them having worse Queens too often. Against their combined range of AQ/sets/flushdraws, I think you are crushed here too hard and you have poor playability.

      Thanks

      Check/fold where?
      On river like I did or earlier?

      From your reasoning I understand directly on flop.

      Flop can be a check but bet is fine. But once two players call u, u are crushed.

      U can play around with equilab too. Bb is probably not too likely to have a set but he can have flushdraws and aq and KQs. Other guy could be on sets too. Then try to calculate your 3way equity and see how poorly u are doing.

      I dont think they are loose enough for us to include 56s.
