      Was this play correct? Both opponents were really loose (<60 VPIP)

      IPoker, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $15.10 (151 bb)
      SB: $10.21 (102.1 bb)
      BB: $3.74 (37.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T 9
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BB calls $0.30, MP calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25) J 3 A (3 players)
      BB checks, MP checks, Hero bets $1, BB calls $1, MP raises to $3.93, Hero raises to $8.58 and is all-in, BB calls $2.34, MP calls $4.65

      Turn: ($21.75) 5 (3 players, 1 is all-in)

      $21.75 pot ($1.45 rake)

      Shipping the flop is a big mistake. I think mp is really strong here when he raises into two other people so u should probably bet fold the flop. U are dominated by some stronger draws as well such as K:sQ.

      With such a weak flushdraw and with both players being short, i dont like the idea of calling such a huge flop raise as well

      With both players being that loose, maximum I expected them to have was some A (maybe J).

      So, the all-in being a coin-flip against those pairs, I expected to complete the flush and win BOTH players stacks, which, I thought, had the implied odds required (I wasn't actually thinking about possible stronger draws).

      Seems any draw can and should be used to put pressure on opponents (let's say it's a good reason to c-bet or even check-raise against thinking opponent on the flop), but you should always lay down those, if you confront any resistance, correct?
