      I think I played this hand badly, although I'm not entirely certain which my first mistake was. Comments please?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $20.53
      BB:
      $1.40
      UTG2:
      $9.90
      MP2:
      $3.34
      Hero:
      $11.29
      BU:
      $9.85

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:heart: , A:diamond: . MP2 posts a blind of $0.10.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.10, MP1 folds, MP2 checks, Hero raises to $0.60, CO folds, BU calls $0.60, SB calls $0.55, BB calls $0.50, UTG2 folds, MP2 calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($3.10) 9:spade: , 5:club: , J:heart: (5 players)
      SB bets $0.10, BB calls $0.10, MP2 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $2.40, BU calls $2.40, SB calls $2.30, BB calls $0.70 (All-In), MP2 folds.

      Should I have bet more on the flop, pot-size maybe?

      Turn: ($11.20) 8:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $6.00, BU raises to $6.85 (All-In), SB folds, Hero calls $0.85.

      Should I have check/folded the turn considering the number of callers on the flop and the possibilities of being up against a set or straight?

      River: ($24.90) 7:spade: (3 players)


      Final Pot: $24.90

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of aces (Ah Ad)
      BB shows a pair of fours (4s 4d)
      BU shows a straight, queen high (Qd Tc)

      BU wins with a straight, queen high (Qd Tc)

      Q. Should I have bet more on the flop, pot-size maybe?
      A: Yes, because even though flop is dryish, you have many opponents.

      Q: Should I have check/folded the turn considering the number of callers on the flop and the possibilities of being up against a set or straight?
      A: I dont think so. The pot is too big and they seem to be on a draw. You cannot let them outdraw you just because you are scared of a set.

      I wouldnt fold AA if you check and he shoves $6.85 since you only need to win like 33% of the time for it to be profitable, So I think its correct to shove turn ourselves and maximize FE.

      Flop: Bet more on flop.
      Turn: Guess you are beaten here, a way too many villains have called you. I prefer to go check/fold here and give up my hand.
      Lets see what judges advice.
