      Was a little unsure between raising and calling pre-flop, better to raise with AK?

      As played I was concerned about 'potentially' being against 88 for the set or maybe J10 of clubs on the turn, but figured I have to willing to commit as there will also be plenty of other hands in his range that I beat.

      As for other potential hands, I pretty much discounted them, eg could a villian call a raise on the flop with QQ or any other J10 hand, and the chances of KK or AA are low as I block these hands with AK.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: When you have so loose opponents behind you then you really have to rather 3bet than play such a hand in multiway pot. It's gonna be way too often a difficult play postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to add, although I'd definitely raise it bigger on the flop and then also ship the turn.

      Best Regards.
