      iPoker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed) - iPoker Converter Tool from

      MP1 ($3.07)
      MP2 ($13.37)
      CO ($7.48)
      Hero (Button) ($1.85)
      SB ($10.76)
      BB ($6.09)
      UTG ($3.84)
      UTG+1 ($9.80)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with Q:diamond: , Q:heart:
      4 folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises $0.50, 1 fold, BB calls $0.40, CO calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.55) 4:diamond: , 4:spade: , A:heart: (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($1.55) Q:spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $1.35 (All-In), BB calls $1.35, 1 fold

      River: ($4.25) 9:club: (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $4.25 | Rake: $0.21

      Results in white below:
      Hero didn't show Q:diamond: , Q:heart: (full house, Queens over fours).
      BB had 9:heart: , Q:club: (two pair, Queens and nines).
      Outcome: BB won $4.25

      I guess I was lucky to hit the third queen and win the pot. So, was my check on the A high flop with 2 opponents correct? Or should I have bet because of being the last to act? And what to do on later streets if I hadn't hit the queen, check/fold?

      Your play is fine according to the basic SSS articles, which state that you only cbet if you are HU or have TP J Kicker+ or a better hand.

      I suggest you continue the good play like this and when you become silver you can read the Continuation Bet article.

      I would however be scared of any bet on the flop here because Axo+ and Axs+ is a favourite limping spot for many fish especially on NL10.

      Don't think about the results be happy you played the hand correctly.
