i figure i shoulda went 3x BB at least. ya all think i shouldve or how much more if any? 3 of us left in $5 27 person SNG. every1 playing semi tight. after coming back from 750 chips at 50/100 blinds ill be happy with the finish just wondered if my preflop betting coulda been different. figured if i bet much more than 2x BB though they would fold and i wanted at least one of them in it to try to maximise profit from the hand. results thinkin but i didnt want to go much higher until i seen the flop though.

Raising 3BBs and having both the blinds fold is a perfectly fine result with KQ offuit. You don't necessarily want action with this hand; it's great 3-way, but like I said, there is nothing negative about winning only the blinds and antes here.

Post-flop, there wasn't much else you could do but call...but ya I agree; raise more PF.

he made a great call... 2:1 pot bet for villain to hit 3:5.1... villlain has to think he made a great beat.. no he got lucky in hoping in hero didn't call.
Villian is a loose cannon gambler... you can't be afraid here to lose against him .. time to take a chance.. villian would lose more here long run but he doesn't know that

yeah this is the type you love to see. would love to have seen his face when i called and flipped over K Q. i just wondered if there was some way to avoid it. i had him on at least A Q. dont worry bout the river cause i damned it for the night.

You have to be a bit suspicious when the bigger stack tries to bully by putting you all-in. It suggests they don't really want you to call, as was the case here. He knows he is around 30-35% to win the hand if you call (and he hits his flush), but he's thinking you'll actually fold most of the time, making this a +EV play for him. Risky though, and not sure I'd do it myself.

Still, you got a good result from it. You're in 3rd place and have nothing to lose - you need to get all your chips in as the favourite to double up, and you did so. I don't think you did much wrong here.
