      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:club: , A:spade:
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0,10, CO raises to $0,40, Hero raises to $1,20, 2 folds, MP3 calls $1,10, CO calls $0,80.

      Flop: ($3,75) Q:club: , K:diamond: , 9:heart: (3 players)
      MP3 bets $30,85 (All-In), CO calls $28,80 (All-In), Hero calls $8,80 (All-In), MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($70,15) 6:diamond:
      River: ($70,15) T:club: (3 players)

      Final Pot: $70,15

      Ok, MP3 isn't probably a maniac but oh well his AF is 9.0 (althought yeah few hand sample..) I felt like he could call preflop and do that raise with AK, AQ (obv also with KK,QQ which had me beaten..). The CO had been playing soo agresively with everything (he was at $30 for calling a push preflop with 77 and hitting set)... anyway I felt I couldn't fold my aces.. but should I?

      (btw lol at the pot size, I guess playing the hand I didn't realize BOTH of them were with 300BB)

      You need ~29,2% equity in such situation, I made you few examples:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 76,588% 76,468% 0,240% 23,292% KK-QQ, 99, AKs, KQs, JTs, AKo, KQo, JTo
      Player 2: 23,412% 23,292% 0,240% 76,468% AA

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 72,841% 72,687% 0,310% 27,004% AKs, KQs, JTs, AKo, KQo, JTo
      Player 2: 27,159% 27,004% 0,310% 72,687% AA

      So most likely you are behind here because I don't really think that CO is Calling with a bad hand here for 300BB. Against only MP3 you could consider Calling here but after CO also called, I would rather prefer to fold and don't risk with my money, except if you don't have very good reads that MP3 could be pushing something like with 2nd pair and CO could be calling loose.

      Best regards,
