      PartyGaming - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG+1: $2.17
      MP: $2.93
      MP+1: $2.12
      Hero (CO): $2.16
      BTN: $1.06
      SB: $2.00
      BB: $1.69
      UTG: $2.34

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has A:spade: T:heart:

      fold, fold, MP raises to $0.06, MP+1 calls $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, fold, fold, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.25, 4 players) 5:spade: A:heart: 2:club:
      BB checks, MP bets $0.12, MP+1 raises to $1.44, fold, fold, fold

      MP+1 wins $0.47

      MP+1 seemed to be a fairly loose and aggressive player, but I wasn't sure of it at the time of the hand. Did I make the right move? How could I improve?

      Thanks...

      hey crazyrocker,

      your first ever post on PokerStrategy.com? Welcome!

      As far as the hand is concerned I would fold pre flop, once the guy calls in between its going to be very hard to win the hand and we have some reverse implied odds. I.E when the flop comes Axx we may not have the best hand very often. Because it is probably one of the best hans that we would fold, peraps electing to 3bet bluff with it would be a good option as the guy who flat the open raise probably doesn't have and you said the initial guy was loosey goosey.

      Well played on the flop, we could be drawing dead here and people don't tend to get too out of line on Axx boards in multiway flops.

      GL and keep posting
