      I got caught in two minds after the flop as how to play the cards and my analysis of the hand is that i played it very badly and i should have just checked/folded.

      Any advice and suggestions welcomed.

      I wouldn't try to bluff against 2 opponents. Just check/fold the hand.

      SSS says that a minraise should be treated as a limp, and the raise should be 4x bet + 1x bet per limper(basically double the normal amount). If this is correct (judge?) then the pre-flop bet should be $1.40 Since this is more than 50% of your stack, you simply push all-in preflop.

      You are getting great odds to catch a fish (pre-flop you are a virtual coin-toss against QQ or less) in addition the last player to act is the CO with a giant stack - I would guess that if the others fold, he calls you with any 2 cards.

      Anytime I find myself in late position with a big hand and there is already pot contention, I like to get all my money in quick. Even if they all fold you pick up dimes4blinds. I would push all-in pre-flop in this situation.

      Preflop:
      Clickraiser + 1 Clickcaller so you should reraise 5 (Not Five but Four) times his minraise amount.

      Thats $1 and since thats more than 50% of your Stack: Go All-in
      This creates max value and max fold equity (= heads up)

      As played now:
      Just check/fold in a multiway pot with this board

      I thought it was 3 times the original raiser + 1 raise for each additional caller of that raise hence my bet of 0.80

      Yep my mistake
      But as you are SB and you have 90c left if anyone calls, you can consider going all-in just because of your position.
