      Prima, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $10.26 (102.6 bb) 20/10/1.7/4.3/25/425 Fold to C-bet 43% Raise Cbet OOP 29%(7)
      UTG: $12.47 (124.7 bb)
      MP: $1.96 (19.6 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $10.15 (101.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A K
      UTG raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.90, SB folds, BB calls $0.80, UTG calls $0.60

      Flop: ($2.75) A 3 8 (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $1.60, BB raises to $4.55, 2 folds

      I really don't think he can be raising with much that I beat. Doubt he'll have a flush draw since Ac is already out so maybe KQs max. Don't think he'll call KJs. No straight draws make sense. So only sets make sense, no 2 pairs make sense either.

      Hello,

      Preflop I'd make it $1.

      On the flop betting is fine.
      When BB raises I'm not really folding here and I will put the money in. We have TPTK and if he has 88 for example, he will probably have AQ/AJ here too.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Yeah he can have AQ/AJ but why will he go out of his way to raise so big with AQ/AJ. He's committing himself with that raise size and he wants to get it in.

      I think he'll just call flop with AQ/AJ.

      Well... I can't tell you why he'd raise AQ here for example because I am just simply going to fold it preflop.

      There is now way I am folding here my TPTK. Worse Ax also some draws that he might want to stack off with.
      In addition people do tend to slowplay their big hands in 3b pots so might just call with 88.
