      Hello crodady,

      Preflop: The problem with Calling is that we are just giving great odds for others to Call and will have problems when we even hit something, opponents could still have sets or what so ever hands. Therefore I often would even consider 3betting here. And be happy if we just get the money without seeing flop. AKo equity against any other Calling hand has bad playability and we will never know where we stand in 4-5way pots.

      As played
      Postflop: Totally fine play, we are in multiway pot and I wouldn't be even surprised when he came out with set there, planning the flop to Check/Raise and the nobody bets, and then trying to get maximum value when the Ace comes. I am also folding it on river.

      Best regards.
