      MP: $21.57
      MP+1: $8.76

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:diamond: A:spade:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.30, fold, MP+1 calls $0.30, CO raises to $1.35, fold, Hero raises to $3.00, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $1.65

      Flop: ($6.70, 2 players) 4:club: A:club: 2:club:
      Hero bets $4.03, fold

      Hero wins $6.40

      Here is most likely has QQ+ Flop is action killer. I think i would go here with KK QQ or AK that has club? Did not want to give free card or would he try to bluff there if i check often inaff to make this worth risking?

      Hey Robert,

      I want you to remind you this is the MSS/SSS section :)

      As for your hand, preflop is fine. The flop becomes easy to play regardless what comes because our stack is more or less the potsize

      I always shove the Flop because thats what we would do if we had a naked flushdraw in the means of AK offsuit for example

      By betting smaller you give your opposition the change to draw out on you

      Best regards,
