      Hey ALesh123,

      I disagree with your bet on the Flop. You say you bet for value & protection.

      • What worse hands will be calling your bet on this AK2 board? 66? 55? 87s?. How often will they call you compared to AQ?
      • What are you protecting your hand from?

      According to the strategy, we are multiway with a trash hand so I just check/fold there

      Best regards,

      Wow you are right. There is almost no way that kind of hands will call me.
      I want to protect against Q, J, T and straith draw.
      Funny is that MP2 has draw.
      Tnx for explanation
