      First hand of the day! :)
      Obviously villains are all unknown , but me holding Ah and they chasing any heart or str and hold onto two pair this level at any price, I thought I was good to go on the turn. I wasn't surprised no-one pushed to my raise on the flop.
      And yes I kno wthey will play any two suited so I could be drawing thin, but if I was worried about flushes I'd fold every sencond hand. :)

      So do I check the turn and give it up, or even chk/call a bet and see the river?

      I hate chk/calling by default usually. :)

      Ty in advance.

      Prima, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      SB: $5.50 (137.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $4 (100 bb)
      UTG+2: $3.05 (76.3 bb)
      MP1: $3.68 (92 bb)
      MP2: $1.82 (45.5 bb)
      MP3: $3.96 (99 bb)
      CO: $1.98 (49.5 bb)
      BTN: $4.54 (113.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A A
      UTG+2 calls $0.04, MP1 calls $0.04, 3 folds, BTN calls $0.04, SB completes, Hero raises to $0.32, UTG+2 calls $0.28, MP1 calls $0.28, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.04) 3 5 7 (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+2 checks, MP1 bets $0.36, Hero raises to $1.24, UTG+2 calls $1.24, MP1 folds

      Turn: ($3.88) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.44 and is all-in, UTG+2 calls $1.49 and is all-in

      River: ($6.86) 4 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      I would check/raise the turn. both of you are going all-in either way, and by check/raising you are giving him the chance of betting some hands which would have folded if you bet yourself

      Hello gadget51,

      Rather Bet the flop yourself than Check/Raise it cause you just making a lot weaker hands to fold this way and don't let them even continue. Otherwise not much to comment.

      Best Regards.
