      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:club: , K:diamond:
      MP2 calls $0.20, Hero raises to $1.00, 2 folds, SB calls $0.90, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.80.

      Flop: ($3.20) 3:diamond: , A:diamond: , T:spade: (3 players)

      Turn: ($12.20) 2:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $9.00, SB raises to $15.80 (All-In), MP2 calls $15.80, Hero calls $6.80.

      River: ($59.60) 9:diamond: (3 players)
      MP2 bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20 (All-In), MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $60.00

      I did not think SB was on a set or 2 pair since he did not re-raise flop, besides turn pot is so big that only way I can really get away from it is c/f which is too weak. MP2 was obviously on a draw. River card made me insta tilt :)

      Preflop: OK.
      Flop: Raise to ~$4.50, you have to protect your hand and also find out if your hand is strong enough.
      Turn: I'd might consider taking the Check/Call line here when he is betting smallish but if there comes a bigger bet, I might consider folding.

      Raise flop more for sure. I can't see raing to less then 4.5$ and I'd likely go for more, folding to a shove. Turn I'd check behind and if possible river also check behind/call or fold dependig on the bet.

      As played this is a truly ugly spot. But against 2 players I think I'm checking behind here. River for me would be fold or call a weak bet.

      Well, I don't see how you can check behind here. MP2 looks like on a draw indeed and therefore you gotta protect. The only way to check behind here is with an amazing read that SB is on a monster in which case you pretty much give up the hand.

      Nothing else you can do IMO. nh

      I raise more on the flop, the rest is fine.

      Best regards,
