I should have raised a bit more pre-flop, but I don't think it would have made difference here.

Hi shyneigh355

I assume that this is a micro stakes MTT and if that's the case then you played the hand fine but I think there are merits to betting the turn rather than shoving but shoving is ok, and come to think of it I would prefer shoving than betting to price out any potential draws that the villains may have.

Against randoms I would bet/get it in or shove the turn. If we knew that both villains were good solid players then alarm bells would be ringing when they both call our c-bet because our c-bet looks legit... we're c-betting more than half of the pot into 3 other guys, 2 of which have position on us and I would expect any good player to realize this, but your average joe will more than likely call you off with Jx and quite possibly some sort of 7x hero call.

Cheers, Chris.
