      My thoughts on this hand is I played correctly pre flop, put in a standard cbet on the flop and got out drawn. Not sure what I could have done on the turn except call. Maybe should have put in a smaller probe bet first off?

      I believe the villain played incorrectly pre flop, and didn't have the pot odds on the flop. Am I right in thinking this?

      How could I have played this differently? Thanks :)

      Hello GraveGoods,

      Preflop: I would do it even bigger here ~$0,35 being OOP and having 2 limpers in the pot.
      Flop: Such a board actually hits a lot of ranges, like no PP will fold here ever, a lot of SCs will continue and maybe even sometimes just an A high will do the same. Therefore I might even just Check it but it's not likely very wrong to CBet it here with the GS+overcards.

      As played
      Turn: I guess at the best you just split the pot here, therefore I might even prefer to bet it like $0,80 and then decide what to do but I don't think that we can get away from the hand while he could as well be shipping with the Ax as you played.

      Best regards.
