      1. I think it was a really close decision, have 9 clean outs FD, possibly one or two more with overcards.

      2. Would it have been possible to check raise the flop all in with my monster draw?

      3. Preflop call was right?

      Not quite sure exactly what people 3bet from these positions in today's full ring games. If they're ever capable of 3bet/folding stuff and you have no reads on them i think i'd rather just 4bet/jam because it looks super strong and MP1 put in some dead money in there. Obviously calling is fine getting more than 3:1, tho it can be tricky out of position against two players.

      As played postflop that's one of the best flops we could hope for and neither UTG+2's c-bet nor MP1's call really show any strength. It's very possible UTG+2 has another whiffed AK, together with QQ+, i won't give him JJ-TT/AQ by default he probably calls with them. MP1 probably has something like 99-QQ/AQs+, some of which he'll gladly release to a raise considering your hand looks like TT. So i would just shove the money in there, even in the worst case scenario where somebody has a set we have a lot of outs. Obviously getting more than 4:1 on the flop you can't go wrong calling either, but i prefer shoving.

      Hope it helps.
