      $0.05/$0.1 No Limit Holdem
      6 players

      UTG Petrobas ($9.50)
      UTG+1 Suriprof ($19.70)
      CO Hero ($9.85)
      BTN nookie_ua ($13.90)
      SB Coosia ($23.70)
      BB sanleonardo ($17.45)

      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is CO A 8
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, sanleonardo raises to $1.30, Hero calls $0.90

      Open raising with A8s in CO is standard from the SHC for SH play

      Flop: A 6 7 ($2.65, 2 players)
      sanleonardo bets $1.30, Hero raises to $3.90, sanleonardo goes all-in $16.15, Hero calls $4.65

      the bet right out seemed like a conti bet - I decide to raise in case they might fold and I'm reraised all in - by now I'm committed to the pot by my raise.

      Turn: 4 ($27.35, 2 players)

      River: T ($27.35, 2 players)

      Final Pot: $19.75

      Hero shows: Ad 8d
      sanleonardo shows: Ks Kc

      Hero wins $17.80 ( won +$7.95 )
      sanleonardo wins $7.60 ( lost -$9.85 )

      I think I would have folded preflop, since you're probably behind.

      On the flop it doesn't really seem like your committed with almost 5$ left behind, and I wouldn't think that you'd be ahead very often when villain 3 bets. I would probably have folded to his shove on the flop... I'm not sure if this is right though.

      don't think my last post was clear about what i though for post-flop play. I think I would have either just called his raise on the flop and re-evaluated on the turn, or I would have reraised and folded to a three bet. I'm interested to know from more experienced players if these are good ways to play it :)

      Hi bckdrflush,

      openraising A8s from Co is fine but you really have to fold against a 3bet since your are very often either dominated by a better A or behind against a pocket.

      Best regards,
