      BB shows (Th 9h)

      MP1 wins with three-of-a-kind, fives (5s 5d)

      i really didnt know how to play this hand, although i know my first mistake was not raising preflop. the only problem is it lost so much equity being multiway and even with TPTK i knew i was easily dominated. with the betting that went on i knew i must have been beaten. i suppose a big raise preflop would have forced MP1 to fold. but i just saw myself losing a big pot with that hand with so many players...

      Hello DrDunne,

      Preflop: This is actually one of the few spots where I would consider turning my AK into bluff and rather 3bet/Fold than Call being in such a multiway pot. Our AKo ain't good enough to join into a multiway pot. Even if you hit your A or K you will never know where you stand with it.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much to add, we can't continue here. :(

      Best regards.
