      Hi, this is my first time to post a hand in the forum... Just crushed NL2 and this is my first day playing NL5.

      Hello Karl0zzz,

      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!

      You are putting way too wide range there him, why do you even think he is ever going broke with just some AXs hand? What I would at the best do here is that I would go for pot control while we ain't getting really good equity against made hands here:

      Board: 5:club: 8:spade: 7:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    56.29%  51.84%   4.45% { 88-55, 98s, 96s, 86s+, 75s+, 64s+, 98o, 96o, 86o+ }
      UTG+1  43.71%  39.27%   4.45% { 8d7h }

      Rather have to know the opponent that he is loose enough to just play for the stacks here. At the best it's a coinflip for us anyways unless he is really loose. So it's not the greatest board to play for the stacks unless we know a bit more about the opponent.

      Best Regards.
