      UTG: $6.53 (130.6 bb)
      MP: $9.01 (180.2 bb)
      CO: $3.12 (62.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q Q
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.05, CO raises to $0.20, BTN folds, SB calls $0.18, Hero raises to $1, MP calls $0.95, CO calls $0.80, SB folds

      Flop: ($3.20) J 3 T (3 players)
      Hero bets $5.15 and is all-in, MP folds, CO calls $2.12 and is all-in

      Turn: ($7.44) 8 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($7.44) 2 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results:
      $7.44 pot ($0.31 rake)
      Final Board: J 3 T 8 2
      Hero showed Q Q and won $7.13 ($4.01 net)
      MP mucked and lost (-$1 net)
      CO showed Q J and lost (-$3.12 net)


      MP - ( $9.01 USD ) - VPIP: 50, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 4
      CO - ( $3.12 USD ) - VPIP: 22, PFR: 22, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 9

      Basically unknown.

      PF: There are so many players in e pot. SB/CO are both short. I decided to 3-bet 5x because of SB's call and to compensate playing OOP vs MP/CO if they call. Vs SB/CO, a 2/3 to Pot Flop bet effectively puts them all in. Vs MP, I will be more cautious because I don't know what he's trying to do limp/calling 3-bet??

      Flop: I have no idea what to do here because MP is in e hand. Pot is 62bb, CO has 42bb and MP has me covered which is 103bb effective. Flop is very wet. I'd chose to protect here and overshove. Is that overplay?

      Second line I can think of is bet 42bb to put CO all in. If MP raises all in, I don't know. What can he limp/call 3-bet? Lots of pps I think. Ax suited, suited connectors?? But because there are so many draws, I'll still probably call. Problem is if a scare card came on the Turn, I don't know how I should play it.

      Hi.

      Preflop: Squeeze sizes seem a little too large. CO already raised to 4BB and now you are squeezing to 5X (20BB) which is as large as a 4bet size. However if they are all loose and really bad then I think it's fine.

      I think the results speak for themselves - This guy doesn't even fold QJs to a raise size which is as large as a typical 4bet size.

      Flop: I don't like jamming here immediately when MP is deep with us. Just bet half pot and shove most blank turns.

      Thanks.
