      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with A :heart: Q :diamond:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.25, 3 folds, BTN raises to $1, Hero raises to $2.25, 1 fold, UTG+1 calls $2, BTN calls $1.25

      Flop: ($7.00) 2 :diamond: Q :club: 8 :heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($7.00) 6 :spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $2, UTG+1 calls $2, BTN raises to $4, Hero calls $2, UTG+1 folds

      River: ($17.00) J :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $9.74, Hero folds

      Big mistake by checking the flop vs 2 opponents (also having the initiative).
      I guess I wanted to let them catch at least a draw on the turn, and then get some value

      Hey S,

      Why do you 3bet so small preflop? I'd make it at least $3 and go from there.

      As played, flop is a clear value bet imo. You miss value from pairs and Qx. They call quite wide vs such a small bet.

      On the turn I don't understand the super small bet. What is your thought process here? I want to hear what you were thinking and then we can discuss turn and river plays more.
