      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.

      Thanks

      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.
