      UTG ($10.79)
      UTG+1 ($14.45)
      CO ($10.74)
      BTN ($9.55)
      SB ($12.02)
      Hero ($9.26)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is BB K:spade: K:diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.35, UTG+1 calls $0.35, 2 folds, SB calls $0.30, Hero raises to $1.10, UTG calls $0.75, UTG+1 calls $0.75, SB calls $0.75

      Flop: Q:spade: 8:spade: 7:spade: ($4.40, 4 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3, UTG calls $3, 1 fold, SB folds

      Turn: 3:spade: ($10.40, 2 players)
      Hero goes all-in $5.16, UTG calls $5.16

      River: 9:club: ($20.72, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: $20.72

      Was the flop bet a good idea considering I had the overpair plus the redraw to the 2nd nut flush, or should I have played pot control? Am I in a way ahead/way behind situation here?

      Of course, once the fourth :spade: hit on the turn, there was nothing left but to shove anyway.

      Your preflop 3bet is way too small in my opinion, being out of position with two coldcallers. UTG is getting almost 3:1 on a call in position, and coldcallers will get even more than that if UTG calls. We're not really looking for a 4-way flop knowing we'll be pretty much committed on any of these flops. I'd raise it up to around $1.8.

      Rest of the hand is fine obviously, your hand stands to be ahead most of the time and even if it's not you have a probably redraw to the 2nd nuts, it's a mandatory bet/call.

      Hope it helps.
