      Your raise pre-flop is fine but just make it $0.10 please.

      On the flop I'm just calling the minbet and see what the turn brings as we've got overcards + a backdoor flush draw. Don't raise here on a 3 way flop... you wouldn't (shouldn't) c-bet this board in a 3bet flop so don't start spewing money around. People are never gonna fold pocket pairs on this flop.

      As played: fold the turn, you're not getting odds to draw for your flush. You do have implied odds but on the other hand you also have reverse implied odds playing against you. If you hit your K or Q on the river, you might get valuetowned against a set or trips.

      Please don't fold that preflop ever, the fact that UTG is so bad and limp/calling way too much makes it criminal for you to fold a hand like KQs in that spot, the opportunity of playing against UTG trumps any chart requirements you might be following.

      Agreed on the rest, hard to make 2 fish fold on that flop.


      Hope it helps.
