      SB: $5.44 (108.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5 (100 bb)
      UTG: $4.80 (96 bb)
      MP: $3.49 (69.8 bb)
      CO: $14.08 (281.6 bb)
      BTN: $9.68 (193.6 bb)

      Flop: ($1.52) 6 Q 2 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($1.52) 9 (3 players)

      $7.50 pot ($0.31 rake)
      Final Board: 6 Q 2 9 A
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$3.49 net)
      MP showed A Q and won $7.19 ($3.70 net)

      MP is 43/33
      CO is 33/24
      both AF below 2

      I think I should have raised bigger (how much?) pre and try to go for stacks against the shortstack.

      Flop is pretty dry, but I think skipping cbet here is good.

      On turn I decide to take a cheap stab at the pot, I might have the best hand and I might make someone fold a small pair.

      Now that I think of it maybe I should have check/called river?

      Vs tighter ranges in 3-way situations, I would give up on this flop. Here you have 2 overs which are often going to be clean, a dry Q high flop, and two players who probably have pretty wide ranges. Your fold equity should be enough to justify the bet here.
