      I was about to when I heard Veriz' voice saying, "What worse hands will call?"



      Results: $1.27 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: 8 4 A J 5
      Hero showed A J and won $1.21 ($0.59 net)
      UTG+2 showed T K and lost (-$0.62 net)
      Well, air, apparently...

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Overall I don't even mind your play to Check behind the river cause FD/SD got there but at the same time it's one of the spots where you could easily pick even the thin value cause I would assume him having enough of worse Ax/2pair in his range which definitely will pay you. :)

      LoL@veriz voice. :f_biggrin:

      Best Regards.

      Easy bet IMO, weak players will never fold A-x here.
