      fold preflop, this hand is garbage because if you hit an ace and you're given action your hand is probably not good, and if its good you don't get any action

      as played I think postflop is perfectly fine. don't let the results cloud your judgement, you got it in good !

      This is a prefect example of why A2os shouldn't be played after a raise preflop. Lets say if you hadn't hit the 2, and he hadn't hit flush, you would have still lost money there.

      On the flop you couldn't have folded top pair to a min raise, but you could put him on Ax hand with a higher kicker than yours.

      Turn , if the guy just has 60 cents left after the raise, just shove him all in instead of him re raising, but here he re raised anyways so it doesn't matter.

      Actually i gave him an better ace, don't know why i called that, but i was happy when the deuce turned up ;-). But should you even fold A2 against a raise if you are playing only against one opponent, as it was here?

      i'd have to agree, fold A,2o pre-flop.
      after the flop you were always going broke imo.

      I´d fold A2 pf.
      Postflop is fine.
