      how should i have played this hand? up against 2 villains who both are shortstacked... not sure about my play.

      Known players:

      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.68 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:spade: , 9:spade:
      MP2 calls $0,50, 2 folds, BU calls $0,50, SB folds, Hero raises to $2,25, MP2 calls $1,75, BU calls $1,75.

      Flop: ($7,00) T:diamond: , 8:spade: , 5:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks, BU bets $4,50, Hero raises to $29,25, MP2 folds, BU calls $18,20 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($52,40) 5:heart:
      River: ($52,40) A:diamond: (2 players)

      I think your play is fine provided you're planning to felt any flush draw and any top pair, A9s stands to be ahead of these two clowns' ranges.

      Given their stats so far tho, i don't think you can really expect them to bet/fold anything so i'd probably bet out myself and see what happens, tho check/raising certainly makes the play easier and you can really do a mistake with that hand using that line.

      Hope it helps.
