      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:heart: , J:club:
      MP1 raises to $1,00, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $1,00, 2 folds, Hero calls $0,90, BB raises to $3,00, MP1 calls $2,00, MP3 calls $2,00, Hero calls $2,00.

      Flop: ($12,00) Q:heart: , 9:spade: , 9:heart: (4 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $3, MP1 folds, MP3 calls $3,00, Hero raises to $2,24 (All-In).

      Turn: ($20,24) 8:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $13, MP3 folds.

      River: ($33,24) 8:diamond:

      Final Pot: $33,24

      First I thought that I should go all-in but then I decided to call, what was my first mistake. Then BB made 3x re-raise and I put him aces or kings. Strangely both players called and my pot odds were very good even against aces or kings. So I decided to see the flop, which wasn´t the best, but I thought, that I might have 3-4 outs (2 jacks, and backdoor straight and flush draws)- and finally then I went all-in. In the end if I would gone all-in pre-flop then BB would isolate me and made at least 10$ re-raise, this way I managed to get maximum out of the other two players:) .

      And why I didn´t go all-in, because MP1 seemed tight and MP3 coldcall wasn´t also so nice, so I afraid already queens+ or AK and I was willing to give the pot away, if A, K, or Q would come to the flop.
