      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      CO: $67.77 (135.5 bb)
      BTN: $52.50 (105 bb)
      SB: $48.36 (96.7 bb)
      BB: $36.12 (72.2 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $57.24 (114.5 bb)
      MP: $135.96 (271.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 8 A
      Hero raises to $1.50, MP calls $1.50, CO calls $1.50, BTN calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($6.75) K A Q (4 players)
      Hero bets $5, MP calls $5, 2 folds

      Turn: ($16.75) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      River: ($16.75) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $10, MP calls $10

      $36.75 pot ($1.83 rake)
      Final Board: K A Q 7 8
      Hero showed 8 A and lost (-$16.50 net)
      MP showed A Q and won $34.92 ($18.42 net)

      Anon table.

      MP is a tighter reg.

      I usually throw away Axs from UTG...
      Turn plan was to ch/call, I have showdown value + nutFD, but I wont make better hands fold, and it's not very likely that he would call with FD again on the turn, which I dominate anyway.
      River? I thought he would float with AK/AQ/KQ (?), so I made a thin vbet against AJ, or KQ if he does potcontroll it.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: Rather fold those AXs hands as A8, they are really horrible to play whilst you will also very often be dominated.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine and the idea of Check/calling the turn as well whilst we don't want to face a raise which we have to Bet/Fold it.

      Best Regards.
