      Hero wins with a pair of aces (As Kc)


      Preflop: standard I hope. Is raise size ok?
      Flop: Ok to check behind for a free card? Presumably not much point cbetting into a 4-way pot here?
      Turn / River: given we are in a 3bet pot I think villain must have AK/AQ type hand. (Bet sizing seems wrong for slowplayed set, even if he called a pp with wrong odds preflop.) So I think I can safely call down, but best not to raise as no worse will call.

      Was this all generally ok, or too passive postflop?

      Howdy,

      We could make it even more preflopl, but overall 3betting is fine line to take.

      Checking back flop is fine. On turn we are left HU with fish, so I think we can raise it up here and play for stacks as he may have worse hands.

      Good luck!
