      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($14.40)
      BB ($10.95)
      Hero ($18.46)
      CO ($3.80)
      BTN ($10.17)

      Dealt to Hero A:spade: A:heart:

      Hero raises to $0.40, CO calls $0.40, BTN calls $0.40, SB calls $0.35, BB calls $0.30

      FLOP ($2) 6:diamond: 5:heart: 7:spade:

      SB checks, BB bets $2, Hero calls $2, CO folds, BTN raises to $9.77 (AI), SB folds, BB calls $7.77, Hero folds


      BB: 32/16/1.5 449 hands

      BTN: 43/36 15 hands (but probably in game I didn't have even those 15 hands)

      I don't raise initialy vs BB bet, because its multiway pot, better to leave space to laydown. From so many opponents, they might easily have set or something that beats me. I beat 7x and overpairs, but thats not much, because QQ+ or even TT+ might have raised preflop, so I might beat only few hands compared to whats posible from so many opponents.

      This was not an easy decition to fold, but it might turn out that its easy fold.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      I'd say pretty standard. No way I am going for a suicide raise here. :D There are too many sets/2pairs/straights possible already. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.

      but its so dificult to lay down for me, I probably 'get married' to aces. And sometimes I fold them too easily, e.g. when I am most likley ahead. But at least this time I did ok.

      Well, ask yourself an easy question. What you beat in such a multiway pot? How often you even gonna see any weaker hand here in this spot. This is maybe going to happen sometimes but rather very rarely.

      yeah, I tried to think like that. But its some strange thing. Most players, at least weak ones are going broke there. Its like instinct or something like that. You have aces - you want to go allin.

      True, but at least you folded, didn't you? :)
