      Final Pot: $6,50

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP2 shows (Qc Tc)
      CO shows (5h 5d)
      Hero shows two-pair, aces and kings (Ah Kc)

      Hero wins with two-pair, aces and kings (Ah Kc)

      What to do preflop? I want to make sure I understand the reasoning.
      Calling and playing out of position against 3 opponents seems a terrible idea.
      Folding is too tight? I am probably ahead, even against the openraise form utg2.
      Can I still fold after a 3bet? If the utg2 4bets I have to put him on a very tight range —KK+?— so I have to lay it down.

      On the flop it's an easy all-in with tptk considering the size of the pot.

      Thanks in advance,

      Hello DesertStingray,

      Well, I doubt that I would change much in your play. Most likely I would have done the same. No point to Call it preflop, rather squeeze and gain at least fold equity. AKo ain't a very good hand in multiway pot.

      Best Regards.
