      fold. There are alot better spots to get ur money in. He called the BB preflop (pocketpair?). any set 4/5 and A4 or A5 beats u here. I wouldn't give him a better ace then urs, but still a fold.

      I have seen players do that with 5 :heart: 6 :heart: on this board, too.

      Fold. 2 pair or set are very much in line with his limp/call pf. I would not play for stacks with TPTK on that board(not anymore :D )

      Fold: its a multiway pot (your hand should be stronger on avg.) and you only have TPGK - you may be behind against 54,44,55,A4s,A5s,23. Even a draw like 56s or 67s is a flip for you.

      Yeah, I figured since it was a multiway pot I'd be better off folding the hand. But what if I was HU?

      And I just noticed the title is wrong, I have TPGK not TPTK. :D

      EDIT: Just edited the title.

      HU its very difficult. You may call or fold but don't expect to win a lot. Typically, those are situations where you want to have a read: which hands does he shove? Even if I only know he did this move several times, I'll call as I expect him doing this with weaker hands then.
