      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $3.85
      SB (Hero):
      $9.35
      BB:
      $7.95
      MP1:
      $4.00
      MP2:
      $13.76
      MP3:
      $13.29
      CO:
      $5.57


      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, 2.
      3 folds, CO calls $0.10, BU folds, Hero calls $0.05, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.3) 4, J, A (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, BB folds, CO raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.5) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.78, Hero raises to $2.60, CO raises to $4.87, Hero calls $2.27.

      River: ($11.24) 5 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $11.24.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and twos(A 2).
      CO shows two pairs, aces and fours(4 A).

      CO wins with two pairs, aces and fours(4 A).
      Found it awkward to raise turn there, but did it anyway. I think calling makes more sense since raise won't fold any bigger hand or get called by worse.

      I dont really like the limp post-flop..

      Should of raised it around there to show some strength..

      but as played, not much you could of done.

      Hello liguolong,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Well, against CO stack I'd most likely just 3bet it right on the flop and most likely even play for the stacks. That kind of opponent may easily even just have there Ax hand. We are OOP and we wont be able to continue on the turn very easily anyways.

      If we add some Ax hands in his range and maybe sometimes even wider range and more Ax hands, we are getting pretty decent equity:

      Board: A:club: J:spade: 4:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    53.24%  47.31%   5.93% { 44, AQs-A8s, A4s, AQo-A8o, A4o }
      UTG+1  46.76%  40.83%   5.93% { As2s }

      But otherwise most likely we ain't folding on turn with nutFD+2pairs vs his stack.

      Best Regards.
