      Preflop : First call is may be good if you play with fish. Otherwise, I consider folding this...

      And then, when other player reraised, you should fold, cause if you call, you decide to play medium hand in big pot, out of position

      but I get good odds with a hand that plays well in a multiway pot

      Hands like Ax, Kx and maybe even Qx with medium kicker like T or J are very dangerous hands, because when they make toppair it's difficult to let them go and you could easily lose a big pot with them.

      Now you were sort of lucky to hit your 3-outer on the turn, but the big question is: would you still play the same way if the turn was T :club: (in other words: if you didn't make 2-pair) or would you have folded the turn??

      Of course Button will be squeeze-happy in these spots, but he saw a raise and a call raise in front of him and he still decide to 3-bet for the first time in 210 hands and his stats look tight (vpip/pfr) for short-handed, so alarm bells should be ringing in the future.

      PS> concerning pot-odds: you now have huge reversed implied odds, better to join a multiway with J :spade: T :spade: or something, then you don't have the problem of domination and when you hit, you probably hit the nuts

      Hello jules97,

      Doh, funny thought I replied to this hand but I guess when internet went down I didn't post it. Gonna evaluate it again. :D

      Preflop: As long we are getting decent odds of course it's possible but I would more often advice not to put yourself into difficult situations where you might start to overplay your pairs. :(

      As played
      Postflop: Instead of Calling the turn just get it in, if he has a hand he is willing to pay and if not we don't want him to Check behind the river. :P

      Best Regards.
