      Preflop: Hero is BB with 3, A.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, MP2 calls $0.10, 4 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.35) K, A, A (3 players)
      Hero ???,

      What should I do here? Are the odds of someone else having the last ace low enough to profitably assume that I have the nuts?

      Hey midgetjay,

      You can easily assume to have a v.good hand here, not the nuts maybe, but still worth pushing. At this spot you can follow two lines: 1) bet or 2) check/raise. The second one seems more profitable if you're playing against aggressive oponents but with passive ones you should bet.

      With similar hands (i.e. trips) you want to go all-in as soon as possible. Just need to determine the optimal way according to the oponents you're playing againts.

      pot/pot/shove is a very correct line for NL 10 :)
