$2/$5: Quite Possibly Spewtastic Straddled Hand 300BB Deep

V1 $1000, V2 $1500, V3 $500, I cover.

My image is bad because my last straddle attempt failed miserably. But I'm not one to give up. I straddle and find Q 9

V1 at CO makes it $35, V2 button calls, V3 BB calls.

V1 is a grinderish dude picking on my straddle. V2 and V3 are fish, very stationy preflop and to a lesser extent postflop. I 3b to $100. V1 goes away, V2 and V3 call.

Flop: Q 7 :s: 3 Pot $337 BB checks...

1. Was 3b bad and why?
2. What do we do now and what's our plan for the hand?

    Squeezing from blinds/straddle vs these guys you need to size much bigger, 175-225

    As played, bet small to get called by under pairs, Ax. If they were less call happy I might check but I don't see any reason to let up here.

    squeezing can be okay but I want FE. making it 100 has no FE and TBH I am shocked that the openraiser folded with two fish behind. I make it at least 175.
    calling and squeezing with larger sizing seems close in terms of EV.

    AP, I would bet like 150, go broke against BB and bet/fold (you will never face a raise from v2 here IMO) against v2.

    if v2 calls, I will check the turn a lot and probably fold a lot if he bets. I don't see a rec floating a ton here and KQ/AQ fits in his range pretty well.

    Pre must be bigger if you are going to do it but why are we against stations? Just wait till we have it any value bet.

    As played I would raise to 150-175 like others said. Raising to 100 is asking everyone to call. The open raiser should realize if he calls the other two will also. I like calling here and trying to win a big pot since we are 200 and 300bb deep with two of them.
