      Well, I guess this was bad luck, I had him 'till the river, and then it was a fair call (thought for a split)...

      Anything I could've done here otherwise?

      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A:spade: , A:club:
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, MP1 calls $0.15, MP2 calls $0.15, 5 folds.

      Flop: ($0.52) T:heart: , 9:heart: , 7:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.3, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.12) J:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, MP2 calls $1.00.

      River: ($3.12) 8:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 raises $1.23 (All-In), Hero calls $1.23.

      Final Pot: $5.58

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (As Ac)
      MP2 shows a straight, queen high (Ad Qh)

      MP2 wins with a straight, queen high (Ad Qh)

      Hello Lailaihei,

      Preflop: I'd raise bigger $0,20.
      Postflop: I don't really see what hands we beat on river, therefore I'd just Check/Fold there. A lot of straights beat us, flush completed and so on.

      Best regards.

      But on the flop i would bet bigger cause we are still against 2 opponent on draw heavy board, so lets get more value. Turn is ugly and we could consider even just ch/folding cause straight draws have now 2 pair or straight. Actually i like the best to just ch/fold on the turn. As played i would also fold river.
