      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with 9 :spade: 8 :spade:
      1 fold, MP calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.20, 2 folds, BB calls $0.15, MP calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.62) Q :spade: 9 :club: T :spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP checks, Hero bets $0.40, BB raises to $1.28, MP folds, Hero calls $0.88
      1) Does it even make sense to bet here? One of them surely is going to call, and I'm the underdog here, so why are we betting anyway?
      BLUFF: No stronger is folding here.
      VALUE: impossible
      dead money? Well, vs 2 opponents, one of them is going to call, so NO

      2) When he raises, I dont think I can go broke OTF.

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      I think that three-way we can check back on the flop here. We do have decent equity but as for the reasons you said, we can hardly make better hands to fold and can't really bet for value here.
      When BB raises I think calling IP and reevaluating on the turn is the best play.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi!


      What about going broke on the flop? Even vs range with out FD`s, we`re getting good enough equity:


      Board: Q:spade: 9:club: T:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    54.69%  53.82%   0.87% { TT-99, Q9s+, QTo }
      MP3    45.31%  44.44%   0.87% { 9s8s }


      Villain seems to be aggressive, so his range might be even wider.

      You are actually 'ahead' of a lot of hands, so there is still value if he call with a hand like KQ/AQ/KK/AA. He can call with a bunch of spade combo draws which you are ahead of AK/AJ/Kx/Jx, and maybe some NFDs.

      I don`t think, that BB would flat AA/KK/AK.

      Why don't you include KJ in his range? I think that calling is better than folding, since I'm not really sure when BB raises being three-way how much fold equity do we have and if we go broke we are going to be about break even here.
