      first thing is you need to convert your hand to make it readable.

      Second you called preflop with a very weak hand

      After the flop you are a pretty big favourite but i still dont think you were unlucky as you should never have been in the hand anyway

      also you shoudl post this in the had evaluation thread

      cheers

      i would fold the flop as you are normally behind Ak, AQ, AJ. (whcih is why you shodul have folded preflop)


      you hit two pair on the turn so i think getting it all in is reasonable. Your opponent should have folded to your reraise (as normally he is behind AK, AQ, AJ and does not have odds to call for the flush draw.)

      agree to all the others, fold your hand preflop.

      i think you have to ask yourself what were you doing in the hand with a5 off suit. what were you hoping to hit when you played the hand. although the turn card improved your hand there is always a good chance that it improved other players hands too. you had a decent stack size and did not really have to risk it on such a weak ace. i guess if you really wanted to play those cards then maybe you should have raised preflop to represent a much stronger hand.

      ps: as you did not raise preflop your opponent may not neccessarily put u on an ace and certainly not a strong hand and therefore he may even have thought his ace was good and you were using your stack to steal the pot with some kind of draw. also on the turn he picked up a straight draw and flush draw and there are many players out there who ive noticed will shove in that situation, firstly hoping that you will fold and secondly, if you do make the call they still have a chance of taking down a big pot.
