      Known players:

      2 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 calls $0.10, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.70, 2 folds, MP2 raises to $3.99, MP3 calls $3.89, CO folds, Hero calls $3.29.

      River: ($18.2) T (3 players)

      Final Pot: $18.2.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows high card ace(Ks As).
      MP3 shows a flush, queen high(Qd 6d).
      MP2 shows a pair of aces(Ah Ac).

      MP3 wins with a flush, queen high(Qd 6d).

      I should've just pushed the remaining 2.xx instead of flatting the 3bet. I don't mind losing to AA with AK, but wow... Q6s... you've gotta be kidding me.

      Think I could find a fold preflop here. With no stats/history on opponents at least. High chance you are up against at least 1 pair, don't really wanna go three handed with the bet size, no implied odds means you really have to hit. I think, like you said, if you wanted to play the hand you should have shoved preflop. Still think you would of been called, and you do only have A high, so I think a fold would be better. Wait for a better spot to catch the fish.

      Just my opinion, but I hope it helps.

      Agreed you should just jam at this point if you're going to continue, calling makes no sense. And i'm not folding either without reads against two guys with 40-70bb, you never who what the fish are capable of.

      Hey look at that, guy went broke with Q6s.

      Hope it helps.
