      SB posts SB £0.02, Hero posts BB £0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: £0.07) Hero has A:club: J:heart:

      fold, MP raises to £0.15, CO calls £0.15, fold, fold, Hero calls £0.10

      Flop: (£0.47, 3 players) J:club: T:heart: T:spade:
      Hero checks, MP bets £0.35, fold, Hero calls £0.35

      Turn: (£1.17, 2 players) A:spade:

      River: (£2.47, 2 players) Q:heart:
      Hero checks, MP bets £1.40, fold

      Ok, so a pretty ABC reg opens from MP. In some situations I like to just call pre-flop with AJ as it plays pretty well post flop and my call disguises what is a quite good hand although I'm pretty sure that I could have raised here.

      So the flop looks good, although strangely enough, I didn't feel too good about my hand here for some weird reason. MP c-bets 2/3 pot which is standard. Could I raise him here or is the flat call ok?

      The turn looks excellent, what should my play be here? Could I lead out or maybe check-raise? Would that be over played? I'm usually not this passive but I really felt like he had a 10 here, I don't know why.

      The river's pretty crappy but is my fold here too weak and overall what should be my best line throughout the hand? Let me know.

      Hello Ghartman,

      Preflop: Calling here is definitely out of question. No way I would Call being in multiway pot and OOP. Either squeeze or fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: Not mcuh to comment for the given odds on the flop & turn.

      Best Regards.
