      Although loose opponents, I would fold and save the money.

      They both bet the pot, T on flop (it is very likely 1 of your opponents is holding T), straight and flush drawy flop. Only with over cards, with no spades, i would let the hand go.

      Maybe have pushed the flop after the bet but as long there is another caller I would fold. Lets see judges advice.

      I don't think it was. I mean if you had a hand with at least SOME value, it'd be great, but here you're on a plain A-high without additional draws. Plus you have no fold equity. I say: don't waste your money like that...

      edit: it was basically a bluffcall, wasn't it? :)
