Eh, I think its fine tbh. After the second guy cold calls, which demonstrates more strength than the initial raise, very unlikely your hand is good.

DEFINITELY raise more than 4x preflop. Stacks are relatively big, so you are inviting people in to outdraw you here. I make it like 750 or a bit more. The hand becomes easier to play post-flop, because you can force players to either commit or fold on the flop with a good-sized bet.

As played, again, the flop bet should be bigger. Nobody is going to fold any kind of a draw to a less-than-half pot sized bet.

I raise more preflop, probably 600. I'm going to be out of position on the flop so I want to make sure I clear the field some.

Then I bet about 3/4 or more on the flop.

As played I can't fault the fold, but I can't say that I do it. Your turn bet looks so weak. 600 into 3100? What was your thought here? Why not just check?

because the buyin is a joke, you call.

If that's higher stakes, the fold is absolutely fine.
