      BTN player:

      Preflop: I called it because of my equity:
      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 60.622% 58.19% 02.43% 243790924 10181864.50 { AsTs }
      Hand 1: 39.378% 36.95% 02.43% 154789059 10181864.50 { 44+, A2s+, K3s+, Q5s+, J7s+, T7s+, 97s+, 87s, A3o+, K7o+, Q8o+, J9o+, T9o }
      Flop: I think call here is out of question.
      Turn: What do you think about lay down? In my opinion I was beaten here. I was against passive player with AF=1 so showed me that he had a hand.

      I'm not really sure about the call preflop to be honest. Sure you have equity but you lose both initiative and position which are both very important. Either raise it if you think he's stealing pretty wide or just fold it.

      As played though, I would bet the flop. You've hit top pair and need to protect against draws, and also can take back the initiative this way. Plus it gives you more information about what he's holding - if he just calls he's probably drawing, if he raises then you're probably beat, if he folds then perfect for us :)

      Not much you can do on turn now, the 2 :diamond: brings you no fold equity so you can't really bet it, c/f is the only option here I think.

      I think Ats is a little too good hand to fold pf, so I would also likely call.
      I think leading out flop and turn might be good option to get value from worse Ax hands+ he can always have there draws. If he raises I´d prefer also folding.

      Hello BGawli,

      Don't really see why we should donk the flop. Rather let him CB with his whole range. I'd most likely play the same way as you did. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
