      MP2: $2.85 (142.5 bb)
      MP3: $1.04 (52 bb)
      CO: $2.08 (104 bb)
      BTN: $1.18 (59 bb)
      SB: $0.95 (47.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2.09 (104.5 bb)
      MP1: $1.04 (52 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K K
      MP1 folds, MP2 raises to $0.08, MP3 calls $0.08, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.24, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.16
      I was thinking about 4x here as there was 2 players already in the pot but deceided to 3x. Shortstack calls.

      Flop: ($0.57) 9 6 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40[/color], MP3 calls $0.40
      Bet here for protection as there are not many turn cards i would be happy to see. Would a push here be betting to big?

      Turn: ($1.37) 5 (2 players)
      Hero ??
      I shove as villian has only 1/3 pot bet left if i decide to check. Do i ever check fold here considering stack sizes even tho it is a horrible turn card

      $2.17 pot ($0.14 rake)
      Final Board: 9 6 7 5 Q
      MP3 showed 8 8 and won $2.03 ($0.99 net)
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$1.04 net)

      I don't think you can fold as played. I would just push the Turn. And he also can't fold most of his range, cos of the pot odds being offered to him. Even if we mostly isolate ourselves vs better hands, I feel like shoving will still be the best play

      Flop: I would just jam here. And I would jam all my draws as well.
