      CO wins with a straight, ace high (Ah Jc)

      First off any argument for 3-betting preflop?

      Then is my flop play ok? Looking back im thinkin i should of raised flop to protect and to get value from busted draws?

      Turn i decide i dont want any ugly cards on the river, so decide to ship it, river = fml.

      I would 3bet pre here all of the time, you have position and a hand that is doing well against his raising range, on top of the fact you will probably get called by worse quite often. Rest of the hand I agree with, he would be happy to pay you off with worse aces (AJ/AT/AK/A8, maybe others, player dependant) and hands like QT, maybe QJ or KQ. River is just shit luck.

      Hello keoghh,

      Nah, with the position your play is totally fine and I would have played the same way. Nice hand! Of course we could talk about 3betting but then we practically have to 3bet/Fold since our hand ain't gonna be very strong vs his 4bet range.

      Best Regards.
