      Never, ever call on the SB/BB because you are then out of position!

      It is either Reraise or Fold with SSS but with a 3 PFR, I would have folded this hand.

      As played, go for the check/raise to extract more value out of your opponent. If the 3rd comes when they check behind, you always got a redraw for your Queen high flush.

      fold preflop, mp2 only has 3 PFR, we are likely to be behind at this point.

      postflop, i won't check raise, but bet 2/3 pot, standard move. I think checking the flop is too risky on this drawy board.

      True but
      1] You do not got iniative
      2] Their AFs are quite high so I think they mostly bet this one out

      betting against 2 opponents out of position is a very strong move and will scare opponents away

      dont call preflop especially when you play this way postflop, it makes no sense to call with aq and donk a hit potsize, you will only be called by better hands. Play check/raise allin, board is not that draw heavy and you have the 2nd nutbackdoor.
