      Hero checks, CO checks

      Final Pot: $16.90
      CO wins $16.14
      (Rake: $0.76)

      I'd expect the best hand villain would fold to me here to be AT (or 22-44 if he has them).

      Was thinking about shoving the turn as I'd expect villain to fold Jx and worse here. What do you think? Also should've bet 1-2 $ more on the flop if I would plan to shove turn imo.

      Hey man,

      I don't like it .... SB is a fish and when he calls you're screwed there's not much you can do with A8 doesn't matter it's suited it sucks hard ...

      + you give everybody enough good odds for setmining ...
      + you're oop, playability is horrible this just suuuucks ...

      I'd much rather call ... I think it's great situation .. YOU WANT to play this kind of hand multiway with a fish in the spot ..

      you hit fd on flop 10% of the time ... it should be enough ... actually don't get the point of 3betting here :)

      This is your DREAM situation!

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Preflop: Why do you want to squeeze vs loose opponents? You get getting very good odd for just a flat and play postflop, why not to do it?

      As played
      Postflop: Doesn't make sense to CB just once and hope that he ever folds any kind of hands which flat like that preflop -> towards PPs most likely. If you CB the flop then should definitely 2nd barrel the turn or just Check/Fold.

      Best Regards.
