      fold preflop, a6 is the worse acehand. It is too useless to play imo.

      I thought about it, but I´ve taken down a lot limped pots with A on the board against 2-3 players. I would definitely call if A6 is suited, but with A6o is really just lay down.

      Completing A6 is not wrong - as is folding. I think its marginal and I'd play it depending on my postflop skill and the skill of my opponents. As played, I think I'd make a small blockbet on the river. The T will raise, another A will call.

      According to SHC, A6o is not a playable hand from any position, so why play it? And from SB you´ll be OOP post flop

      Well, the SHC is not the whole truth... I play these kinds of hands, because I think I can play them +EV. However, as said, this requires some postflop skills, e.g., you need to control the pot size when hitting an A for example and you also need to take down pots when you don't hit, e.g. by bluffing in good spots. For a beginner, I think a fold is the easier option, but I would not agree that the hand is not profitable in genereal in such a situation (if there's a raise, I'd fold without thinking twice...).
