      Hey BroJustRelax,

      Nice to see new faces on SSS/MSS forum!

      About the hand, what can I say, it's very misplayed on all levels even according to BSS.

      Correct it would be to just fold preflop. You can't call A6o for value here against unknown and the only way to play this hand would be to 3-bet preflop, but that' would be quite advanced and not advisable for a beginner specially not without reads.

      Postflop, I would bet half potsize on the turn when he checks twice and check back river when he checks to you. You have a very weak hand and can't go for much value with it.

      I would advise you to reread articles and stick to them more strictly and to leave the table when your stack goes past 50BBs as said in articles.

      Best regards,
      burek2000

      Hey bro!

      Why are you playing 6 handed? Also A6 off suit is not a starting hand for mss.
      Try to stick to what the articles teach, I have tried to do it my own way also and spewed more money than I care to remember!! :P

      Good luck
