      Top pair + OESD. Was it right to play this way? He limped with Aces which was completely retarded and I never expected to be facing an overpair.

      You top pair has a poor kicker and I think you have to heavily discount your outs on this flop.

      I dont think I'd give myself any outs for two pair here, and this OESD with only one card is also very weak. So let's say you can count with 2 (trips) + 5 or 6 outs (OESD) = 7 or 8 outs.

      It seems best if you play check/call according to pot odds over here.

      Hello mbml,

      You got 10 outs and so it forces you to play a bit more cautiously and passive thus I would evaluate the turn by checking the flop and play accordingly when Mp2 bets

      Best regards,
