      IPoker, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      MP2: $1.64 (82 bb)
      MP3: $0.49 (24.5 bb)
      CO: $1.55 (77.5 bb) Vpip: 28 Pfr: 11 Af: 1,3 Hand: 47
      Hero (BTN): $2.62 (131 bb)
      SB: $2 (100 bb)
      BB: $2.09 (104.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $5.10 (255 bb) Vpip: 19 Pfr: 7 Af: 6,9 Hand: 2,4k
      MP1: $2.91 (145.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A K
      UTG+2 calls $0.02, 3 folds, CO raises to $0.10, Hero calls $0.10, 2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.08

      Preflop I just decided to call my AKs although according to Starting hand chart I should raise. I just call because CO do not raise preflop too much so I think he can have hands like AT+ or some good pocket pairs like TT or better. If I reraise I think he fold all worse hand and reraise with KK+

      Flop: ($0.33) 3 8 2 (3 players)
      UTG+2 bets $0.03, CO calls $0.03, Hero calls $0.03

      Flop is not very nice for me but I simply have to call this funny bet from UTG+2

      Turn: ($0.42) K (3 players)
      UTG+2 checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      I think I should bet on turn approx 2/3 of a pot but I decided to check and slowplay my top pair. (do not ask me why, I do not know why i did that. :f_biggrin:

      River: ($0.42) 7 (3 players)
      UTG+2 checks, CO bets $0.21, Hero calls $0.21, UTG+2 folds

      Third :heart: on a board is card, that I did not want to see, CO bet half of a pot nad there is still UTG+2 behind me. I do not think I will have best hand this time but finally I decided to call.

      Results: $0.84 pot ($0.05 rake)
      Final Board: 3 8 2 K 7
      CO showed A T and lost (-$0.34 net)
      Hero mucked A K and won $0.79 ($0.45 net)
      UTG+2 mucked and lost (-$0.13 net)

      preflop
      For me it's auto-raise. Maybe that's a leak, I mean, nothing should be auto :f_frown:

      As played
      Flop
      Call or raise, that is the question. :rolleyes:
      Well, there's only one way to find out: I ask myself
      1) Can I raise here for value.
      We only have A-high. It's hard to get called by worse ;)
      2) Can I raise as a bluff?
      Hard to make overpairs, top pairs, or even middle pairs to fold here, so not really.
      A raise for dead money could be plausible. I don't know, these tiny bets confuse me :(

      Turn
      Well, neither of them has anything strong. I guess they would even bet with top pair, so are ahead here. I'd bet for value though, they could call with flushdraws, middle pairs.

      As played
      River
      Call seems fine, as the FD completes, my raise for value might bee too thin.

      Hello TedG82,

      Bet the turn, you need to protect your hand. :) But otherwise seems to be fine.

      Best Regards.

      I would usually raise pre here, I get more cautious about 3betting AKs against nits and EP bets.

      Flop: Terrible flop for you and no reason to raise IMO. If it was heads-up it may be worth doing.

      Turn: I would bet for value here.

      River: Folding would be bad, you have to call with TPTK here. No point in raising because you just fold out all his non-flush hands.
