      I'd say its a good laydown, but then I saw its NL5 and you sometimes see hands like 55 and 88 at the showdown in such spots. However, I'd fold as my reasoning is that 2 players call my early position raise and my c-bet on a paired A high board which has hit my range well. With the turn, we only split with AK; we are beat vs. AQ and any jack. I'd call if only CO bets and BU folds, but after bet and call, I don't see me ahead often enough. However, if players at this limit typically play very weired and would play low pockets the same way, you should call.

      this is what i was actually thinking. AA? not likely by looking at preflop. KK? I beat them but very not likely as AA. I can be against AK so would be split. AQ, AJ, QQ, JJ all beat me. So it is like a few hands I can beat but many can beat me.
      well, after my bet on the flop it was just instant call from both of the so i thought i most likely against those hands which i mentioned before. i folded...
      they both went to showdown and one had A10 another one 99.
      you were right, players on that limit plays really weird! it is really annoying.
