      CO: $10.17 (203.4 bb)
      BTN: $4.59 (91.8 bb)
      SB: $7.74 (154.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5 (100 bb)
      UTG+2: $3.44 (68.8 bb)
      MP1: $1.40 (28 bb)
      MP2: $9.61 (192.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      UTG+2 calls $0.05, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 calls $0.05, CO folds, BTN raises to $0.35, SB folds, Hero calls $0.30, UTG+2 folds, MP2 calls $0.30, MP3 folds

      Flop: ($1.17) 2 J 5 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.30, BTN raises to $1, 2 folds

      $1.77 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: 2 J 5
      BTN mucked and won $1.68 ($1.03 net)
      Hero mucked A K and lost (-$0.35 net)
      MP2 mucked and lost (-$0.65 net)

      BU Stats: VPIP: 34, PFR: 18, 3B: 2, AF: 1.4, Hands: 479
      MP2 Stats: VPIP: 20, PFR: 3, 3B: 1, AF: 1.6, Hands: 351

      Here I thought that a raise PF of 1.25€ with AKo would have committed me too much, and I don't like staying postflop out of position on a huge pot with AKo. But it's definitely too strong to just fold, so I opted for a call and re-evaluate postflop. With nothing on flop I decided to just check/fold it.

      BTN has 91.8 BB. Seems fishy to me. Why wouldn't you want to commit yourself preflop against him, Plenty of dead money and AKo is more of a semi-bluffing hand anyway is it not?

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      Calling and building up such a multiway pot is the worst you could pick. The only option here is to 3bet it if you want to continue or just fold it. And why would you committed? Depends a lot on the equities and stuff, what kind player he is.

      Best Regards.
