      Known players:

      0,03/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      notes so far:
      can check/foldturn on nonhit

      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , J:diamond:
      MP3 calls $0,05, CO raises to $0,23, BU folds, Hero calls $0,20, BB folds, MP3 calls $0,18.
      he's stealing wide but I don't really know his postflop behavior yet
      my plan is to go c/c

      Flop: ($0,74) J:club: , 6:diamond: , 2:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks, CO checks.
      flop is super dry so I guess I can go on with the plan

      Turn: ($0,74) 7:club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0,51, MP3 calls $0,51, CO raises to $1,38, Hero folds, MP3 calls $0,87.
      now just what this means?
      i guessed "something better than top pair" coming from this guy

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Preflop: Well, as you see there is another guy in the pot who is very likely going to Call and maybe even BB. We don't want to play it in multiway pot with AJo. And therefore I guess I'd rather prefer to just 3bet and reevaluate it on further action, most likely do it as bluff since I wouldn't plan to go broke with the hand.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much to add, while even MP3 called and then we get raised. Kinda interesting play from him, although I hope we see the hand of his. Maybe was even trapping you.

      Best regards.

      sure thing:

      River: ($4,01) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      MP3 raises $2,27 (All-In), CO raises to $3,89 (All-In), CO gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $8,55

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows (Ac 3c)
      CO shows a full-house, sevens full of deuces (7h 7d)

      CO wins with a full-house, sevens full of deuces (7h 7d)

      of course given his hand his play makes a lot of sense...
      one has to make a serious note about MP3 though
