      BTN: $20 (100 bb)
      SB: $22.28 (111.4 bb)
      BB: $1.62 (8.1 bb)
      UTG: $23.31 (116.5 bb)
      MP: $8.68 (43.4 bb)
      Hero (CO): $29.46 (147.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 2:club: 2:spade:
      UTG raises to $0.80, MP folds, Hero calls $0.80, BTN calls $0.80, 2 folds

      Flop: ($2.70) J:spade: 2:heart: Q:heart: (3 players)
      UTG bets $2.40, Hero calls $2.40, BTN calls $2.40

      Turn: ($9.90) 4:club: (3 players)
      UTG bets $7.50, Hero raises to $26.26 and is all-in, 2 folds

      How should I play it here. There are 2 unk guys he PSB so I am sure he will bet again on the turn. Board is drawy I don't want to see any 9 / K / T / :heart: => 9+9=18 cards = 36% of the time something like that will come. Should I raise it on the FLop to get max value or slowplay it until the river to let third guy call this?

      Hey Ilidek,

      Preflop call is good.

      I'd probably raise the flop directly on this flop texture. You don't need to make it huge, but protecting your hand, extracting value, and taking the initiative will be valuable in this spot imo.

      As played turn is fine, it's your last opportunity to extract value from draws.
