      Hero mucked K A and won $2.17 ($1.20 net)

      I called pre-flop because it was such a small 3 bet.

      Do you like the call on the flop? I didnt want to raise as I couldn't see worse calling.

      Once I hit the second Ace I was probably going broke although it doesnt really change much does it? I mean if I was behind on the flop (to AQ or QQ or maybe even 88) then I am still behind. I know AQ is less likely since there are 3 Aces out. If i got check raised on the turn I probably would have called but I'm not sure

      Hello 0744379,

      Well, kinda cruel spot. Another option would be even to Check behind on the turn since they will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse and you wont get 3 streets value. Although if you hit on the river you may still even get value from his hands. But if you bet then also you plan to go broke.

      What worse will Call you on the flop if you raise? Do you think he is capable of 3betting with worse Ax preflop?

      Best Regards.
