      Was scared of stronger Ax but not enough to fold with odds given. Check on river by villain is very weak, should I shove for value?

      Hello ExMagnusxL,

      Preflop: Actually I don't really like the 3bet here at all without any good reason and since you didn't give any then I'd rather just fold it, since we don't really want to play such hands in multiway pot and often we will not know either our Ace is strong enough with our kicker or not.

      As played
      Postflop: As we 3bet preflop then likely we have also to Call it here against those kind of small bets. And I wouldn't ship it on river, since there aren't that many worse which may Call us, just Check behind and hope to be ahead.

      Best regards.
