      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with Q:spade: , Q:diamond:
      UTG1 raises to $1,25, Hero raises to $4,00, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $4,00, 5 folds, UTG1 calls $2,75.

      Flop: ($12,75) 8:heart: , 4:club: , K:heart: (3 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero ??? (All-In)

      Do I shove with K on flop?

      Again my prob when double stack. Yesterday was just riddiculus. Got doubledup, then get my KK or AA cracked with doubled stack. On one table, and I shit u not, I got in a row!!! KK, KK, AQ, AQ, AJ and QQ... this is just stupid cuz with so much raising ppl behind me call just to see with what "that maniac" is playing... :/

      why shove, your stack is way too big,

      just make a normal 2/3 pot (~$8) raise, i think he would fold many cases here.

      If he calls, then i will just slowdown and hope to showdown for free.

      There is app 12$ pot on flop so 2/3 would mean 8$ which is more than 1/2 of my stack... So if bet push is the only option, I just dunno if that is a right line with two callers and a K on flop, with no reads and stats.

      ah yes, i apologize i completely misread the hand.

      anyway, vs 2 players in a re-raised pot, i think i will check behind.

      Playingg in a multiway pot reduces your FEQ% and thus increases the probabilty of someone having a King.

      I would play it cautiously here and just check with the intention of c/f unless someone is betting very small. But even then, expect to see a turn barrel if you are OOP which means you have to fold on that one
