      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, Q.
      MP2 raises to $0.75, 3 folds, SB raises to $1.75, Hero calls $1.50, MP2 raises to $7.00, SB calls $5.25, Hero raises to $27.56, MP2 calls $18.35, SB calls $18.00.

      Turn: ($77.91) 3 (3 players)

      Final Pot: $77.91.

      Results follow:

      MP2 shows a pair of eights(Kd Ac).
      SB shows two pairs, eights and sixes(6h 6c).
      Hero shows two pairs, queens and eights(Qs Qh).

      Hero wins with two pairs, queens and eights(Qs Qh).

      UTG 25/18/9.5/52 hands
      SB 25/15/7.1/76 hands

      First I flat SB's small 3bet because I don't want to isolate myself vs the top range and this way I kind of induce something stupid from them, when UTG 4bets this big I decided to incline his range mostly to AK , when SB calls I am 99% sure that he has something like 99-JJ or AK so I decide I want to take the flip and I shove, also that they can't really put me on something. So my question is if my play is good?

      I think flatting depends on your style.. you might be perceived as spewtard, then 4betting is the way to go. If you aren't, flatting and under-repping your hand a bit is fine. After MP 4bets though and SB flats I think you shoving reps the same range as SB or close to it, which is TT-QQ, AK sometimes, never KK+. That's not the best situation imo since they will have an easy decision. I think you have a close decision because MP clearly reps JJ+, AK so you can get it in but it's usually just a flipping spot like you said. You will have better EV by getting it in than by folding but don't expect big profits. :)

      After results: SB is more spewy than I thought meaning, you will gain EV since he has more combos which you crush. That makes getting it in even better but MP still will have the highest EV. :)
