      MP: $1.07 (53.5 bb)
      CO: $1.31 (65.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $2.17 (108.5 bb)
      SB: $2 (100 bb)
      BB: $2.02 (101 bb)
      UTG: $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T A
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, MP calls $0.08, CO calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.33) T 9 7 (3 players)
      MP checks, CO bets $0.36, Hero raises to $2.07 and is all-in, MP folds, CO calls $0.85 and is all-in

      Turn: ($2.75) J (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($2.75) 8 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      $2.75 pot ($0.18 rake)
      Final Board: T 9 7 J 8
      MP mucked and lost (-$0.10 net)
      CO showed 9 T and won $1.29 (-$0.02 net)
      Hero mucked T A and won $1.28 (-$0.03 net)

      MP is 73/0 over 11 hands.
      CO is 43/26 over 101 hands.

      Is preflop fine against two fish?

      What do we do on the flop though? CO's overbet looks super strong and it is multiway.

      Do we just puke and fold? Do we call in position and basically commit ourselves? I felt like he could still call with worse Tx and draws by jamming because he was so bad, so that's why I jammed. Wasn't too worried about MP, but I think he'll fold almost anything but his true monsters after I raise.

      I'm still unsure what is best here, and this is a pretty nasty spot imo...

      Against those guys you could even make it bigger preflop.

      In order to find the best move on the flop here, we will need some information about CO here.
      If he tends to be aggressive postflop and donk a lot and plays his draws/pairs aggressively I like your play here.
      If not, I would be very suspicious here and rather go for the fold option as there are plenty of better hands here on the flop and we do have a player behind us left to act.
