      5/10 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q:spade: , Q:club:
      UTG+2 calls $10.00, Hero raises to $50.00, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $50.00, 4 folds, UTG+2 calls $40.00.

      Flop: ($165.00) A:heart: , 6:club: , 8:heart: (3 players)
      UTG+2 checks, Hero bets $115 (All-In), MP3 folds, UTG+2 calls $115.00.

      Turn: ($395.00) T:spade:
      River: ($395.00) 8:diamond:

      Final Pot: $395.00

      I guess i should have avoided conibetting on flop with the A dropping and 2 opponents. Although it would prolly be the right thing if the overcard was K instead.

      Damn, this is just like a hand I played last night, and sure enough, the fish played an Ace. I lost my stack too, should have known better.

      QQ is an easy check with a tight player(s) in the pot when an overcard falls.

      Sometimes a check gives you enough information to let you know that you are beat. eg. MP3 bets, UTG+2 c/r's and you make a good fold.

      The only hands I see UTG+2 check/calling here against you are Ax, 66, 88 or a Flushdraw. And MP3 could also have called with AJ, AQ or a Pocket Pair that has a set now.

      So OOP its very tough here. Its either Pushing and hoping to be ahead or giving up the hand here. In this spot I would prefer option 2.
