      Hello wlcKeD,

      Preflop: From UTG I'd rather fold such a hand.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, we ain't getting great implied odds anymore on turn.

      Best regards.

      Hello again Veriz,

      You said that "Preflop: From UTG I'd rather fold such a hand.", but its not much of a UTG here when 5-handed, its MP3 .... Isn't that too weak of a play in general to fold A7 when just two players left to act behind when I could be OOP?

      I do understand that but I'd still advice at the beginning not widen up your range that far. Because it's so often the case when you even get called then mostly you are against a better ace for example if you hit your A on flop or anywhere else. And could likely just put yourself into difficult spots going to showdown with it and can't lay down.

      But of course it's playable but why not do with with A7s? And off-suited rather for later position.
