      Maybe only bet 2/3 potsize on flop so that you can get out if turn comes a nasty card like A or K, then again the 9 isn't so is it.

      When you play free-plays and hit TPGK (like this scenario), You should always play alot tighter and be prepared to fold some of these hands. The reason for this is that your opponent's range becomes very large and could therefore be holding anything.

      If you play TPQ+K in freeplays then I think it's ok to go broke on the turn, but I would bet 2.25$ and call a reraise/push river, I think by pushing you will only make better hands call you. However I prefer to play TP with K+ kicker, because I don't like to risk too much for small benefit(small pot).

      Let's say MP2 raised and BU called, is a push on the flop good (with Q kicker)?

      Do you mean Hero checks, Mp2 raises x amount and BU calls ?

      fill in the x as an amount because it heavily depends on that

      Something like this...

      Flop: ($0.85) 5:spade: , T:diamond: , 8:heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.85, MP2 raises to $1.6, BU calls $1.6. Hero ?

      Would you fold or continue playing? I know prob an unlikely scenario, but nevertheless interesting.
