      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with T:diamond: , A:club:
      UTG+1 folds, Hero raises to $0,40, MP1 calls $0,40, 3 folds, BU calls $0,40, 2 folds.

      Hero checks, MP1 checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($1,35) Q:club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0,50, 2 folds.

      To contibet or not to contibet? I was a little afraid 'cause there were two of them. On turn I tried to pretend I had Q - not too good strategy, I think?

      Thank you in advance. Don't go too hard on me, remember I'm just a beginner.

      edit: yay, and the wrong section ;( sorry.

      Hi 098799!

      First of all: Thank you for posting your hands. By discussing your hands with other players you will learn a lot and improve your game!
      But: Please post your chip stack and the chip stacks of your opponents as well. And if you play SSS please post your hands in the SSS board and not in the BSS board. Thanks in advance.

      Concerning your hands:
      Hand 1: I would call the bet and hope to improve on the turn. If you raise you should raise more (~$1) because a small raise normally doesn't scare your opponents away.

      Hand 2: I would go all-in directly on the flop because your remaining stack is nearly pot size.

      Hand 3: No contibet on the flop is correct because you are out of position against two opponents. Even on the turn check/fold is the right play. A $0.50 bet doesn't make any sense.

      Good luck at the tables!

      That's right. I need to think, think, think a lot more!

      Also, sorry for the errors. I'll try to fix them next time.

      Thanks.

      AT is as well a preflop fold especially in the EP.
