      Hello Shady9966,

      Nah, I doubt that there is much to do without good information on the opponent. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.

      Hi Shady9966,

      I don't think its a good idea to play A5o in the small blind. better to fold preflop especially against a reg who will often call better Ax in position and let you value bet for him you both hit.

      best regards

      sorry that was me, just wondering if my advise was good :P

      I'll direct the question to you instead then. hehe.

      isn't it a back idea to minraise A5o in the sb? better to fold or raise 3-4x preflop?

      Well, depends usually on your reasons to do that. But usual raise would be that amount. But against some opponents is working perfectly well even min-raise which I sometimes use as well. Ax is also kind of strong and is ahead of most of the BB range and we definitely are able to steal there.
