      0,1/0,2 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with J:spade: , J:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0,80, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0,80, 3 folds, SB calls $0,70, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2,60) T:heart: , Q:diamond: , Q:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2,90 (All-In), MP2 calls $2,90, SB folds.


      Basically what I beat here with Jacks is:
      Any Tx hand
      AK since I block the Jacks
      K9
      Low Pocket pairs.

      Since its a paired board, I don't think any one of them has a Q but since this board meets the following requirements of:
      1) Overcard(s) on the flop
      2) straight-draws possible
      3) its a multiway pot

      Is it +EV to push right here with just Jacks?

      I would just stick to the strategy here. Overcards on the flop in a multiway pot, so check/fold unless you hit something.

      I completely understand your thoughts, but just as with the TT on the Qxx flop, I'd wait for a better spot to risk your entire stack. You only invested 4BB, so you're far from committed.

      I'll play a bit with PokerStove and show you the results later on, because maybe it makes sense in some way to push it here. But I'll come back on that later :)

      I just wonder what this guys have to call a shortstacker here... It always bothers me what can you call with if you have nearly no implied odds ;) .

      But well, go for it, it's not that bad spot since one of them already checked. I mean, it would be even better to have position on both of them, but well.

      A check/fold can't be bad here either... I can't decide ;) . Maybe I'll ask another judge to take a look here.

      I think I do not got any stats of him (yet) but basically any PP would have called me here right?

      Its NL20 after all, gamblers > Poker players - I will wait for another judge's verdict although your verdict is helpful as well!
