      in this hand I made a standard pre-flop raise with TT and was called by two somewhat looser opponents. There was only one overcard on the flop, and it wasn't an A or K. After the check of the first opponent I decided that the pot is so big that if I have...hmm.. 45% that they don't have a Q I can shove and end the hand before a second overcard could show up. Was this the right decision against two opponents?

      Thank you for the evaluation and best wishes!

      Hey Dback357,

      I would just try to check down the hand against two opponents as according to standard strategy, there's not much value in pushing as only Qx will call you most of the times and protection isn't of that much importance.
