      0.10/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5:diamond: , A:diamond:
      4 folds, CO calls $0.25, BU folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.75) A:spade: , 2:spade: , 2:heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.75, CO calls $0.75, SB folds.

      Turn: ($2.25) T:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $2, Hero raises to $3.49 (All-In), CO calls $1.49.

      Are these situations with Ax after free play, on pared flops with A, EV+?. And if, against how many opponents?

      They are + EV sometimes. For instance, on this flop there is quite chance that you are ahead. But they are very marginal and you need some experience to play them correctly. Take it as a rule: fold everything, except TPTK against 3 opponents and TP good kicker 9-T+ against 1 opponent.

      as played: you sold your FE for nothing. either fold, after you`ve checked turn, or push first in (or bet 2/3 pot, if you feel that push might look weak)
