      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 2, 2.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.75, CO calls $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, SB calls $0.65, BB folds.

      Flop: ($3.25) A, 2, K (4 players)
      SB checks, MP3 checks, CO bets $2.25, Hero raises to $8.00, SB folds, MP3 folds, CO folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.5.

      Is raising correct here or should I have called.Since me and CO have around 200BB I want to load up the pot so that I can get AI by the river.But I think that this raise really polarizes my range so he should even be able to fold AQ here.By raising I dont really allow the others players to call as well.So should I have called instead?

      If you raise that board then players would put you on A2 or 22 and would fold everything worse than AK, so yes just calling is better. Co likely doesn´t have there AK so he can´t really call that big raise,s o I´d expect you take pot down close to 95%, which you don´t really want to do basically with nuts
