      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:spade: , J:spade:
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0,06, BU raises to $0,14, SB folds, Hero calls $0,12, CO calls $0,08.

      Flop: ($0,43) A:spade: , J:club: , 8:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0,19, CO calls $0,19, BU raises to $0,52, Hero raises to $1,58 (All-In), CO calls $1,39, BU folds.

      Turn: ($4,11) 8:heart:
      River: ($4,11) 4:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4,11

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows two-pair, aces and eights (Ah Td)
      Hero shows (Ks Js)

      CO wins with two-pair, aces and eights (Ah Td)

      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,
