      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, A.
      MP1 calls $0.02, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.12, 3 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, MP3 calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.39) 6, 7, 8 (3 players)
      MP1 checks, MP3 bets $0.28, Hero raises to $1.88(All-In), MP1 calls $1.88, MP3 calls $1.64(All-In), MP1 calls $0.04.

      Turn: ($6.11) 2 (3 players)

      River: ($6.11) J (3 players)

      Final Pot: $6.11.

      Here is my analyse: NL2, I re-raise slightly higher with several limper have entered hoping to polarize a bit the range of hands they could call me with. So raise at 6BB.

      On the donk of 2/3 of the stack, I don't know what to think of. I thought it could be any KhX, the 55s, the 99s, any made flush draw, straight or trips. But on this limit, I assume it can also be just a maniac trying to take down the pot. I'm not sure to have the required fold equity.
      Since even against a flush or a straight, I've 6 and 8 outs left respectively, I push oping to take down the pot there.

      Both Villan call. What do you think?

      Hello EinsteinFranck,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Raising the flop is kinda overplayed and especially shoving, you are just making a lot worse hands to fold and better ones continue. I'd just Call and reevaluate the further actions.

      Best Regards.
