      Hero (BTN): $54.94 (219.8 bb)

      MP: $25.42 (101.7 bb)
      CO: $37.35 (149.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K Q
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.75, CO folds, Hero calls $0.75, SB folds, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($2.35) K T J (3 players)
      BB checks, MP bets $1.50, Hero raises to $5.42, BB folds, MP raises to $24.67 and is all-in, Hero folds

      $13.19 pot ($0.72 rake)
      Final Board: K T J
      Hero mucked K Q and lost (-$6.17 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.75 net)
      MP mucked and won $12.47 ($6.30 net)

      VPIP: 21, PFR: 17, 3B: 10, AF: 2,3, Hands: 851
      MP PFR: 13

      Due to 3way pot I decided to raise to try and isolate because the board was pretty draw heavy and I'd have hated to see a spade.
      However I didn't really want to call his all-in.
      One thing is me raising him all-in, one thing is calling it.

      If he has AQ/AK/AJs or sets I'm either stolen of outs or not in good shape.

      Hey AtrociousNightmare,

      Call preflop is fine.

      Flop I would tend towards flatting and seeing my open ended draw even if it was multi way. You find info a little more cheaply about BB this way too.

      I think your raise is ok, but I'd make sure you keep it on the small side. It's a dangerous looking board and you want to keep MPs range as wide as possible. $4 would do it imo.

      I agree that you can't really call when you get shoved on.
