      Was it right to check/fold against 2 players as I didn`t hit or should I have gone all-in as the pot was bigger than my remaining stack?

      Hello bubalus !

      It is perfectly played since you did not hit anything with AQ, your hand is considered trash. Therefore you either try to get the pot by a continuation bet if you are playing Heads-Up, or simply check/fold when you face multiple opponents.

      Best regards,
