      hello mr. evaluater once again

      i held this hand today...i know it was wrong to play it right from the preF i was UTG should've only raised with AJs+, but i thought "hey what the hell?"

      i know its wrong to think this way though.

      I posted this hand though to get your opinion on the pstF action:

      villain already went once heads up against me and floated my cbet and made me fold on the turn, so this time i tried a different strategy: i checked on that flop that i thought "its out of my range" and with the Q appeared on the turn i raised since it was perfectly on my range

      Anyway i know this was awfully played...just want your opinion though :)

      ty in advance

      According to the MSS chart we fold ATo on your position. The reason is that you mostly get REversed Implied Odds because Villains are mostly calling with AJ+ and sometimes A8s-A9s so your equity there is:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    64.70%  53.55%  11.15% { A8s+, ATo+ }
      MP3    35.30%  24.14%  11.15% { ATo }

      So this person is not folding that much on cbets due his WTSD so I will check/f the Flop. If he checks back I would bet $0.12 on the TUrn and mostly fire a barrel on the River yes

      Best regards,
