      Well own thoughts: I thought that both players may have an ace, witch would have given me pretty good implied pot odds, for this one,i had a nutflushdraw, so i calculated the implied pot odds to +ev, putting me on ten outs, but one player throw his towel in and i didnt hit it, what should ive done better in this hand?

      Hi Wierdflex92,

      In MSS/SSS we do not call raises and especially not reraises. Despite the fact that they both may have Ax also indicates that they have AJ/AK which is pretty bad

      Then on the Flop I would rather check/call to the Nuts (2pair++) than lead out and get raised like almost always which means you get the money in as an underdog

      Best regards,
      Gerv
