      IPoker, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      BTN: $20 (100 bb)
      SB: $12.30 (61.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $20 (100 bb)
      MP: $27.27 (136.4 bb)
      CO: $20 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      MP raises to $0.60, CO calls $0.60, BTN folds, SB calls $0.50, Hero raises to $3.10, MP folds, CO calls $2.50, SB calls $2.50

      Flop: ($9.90) T A 3 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $5.40, CO calls $5.40, SB folds

      Turn: ($20.70) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $11.50 and is all-in, Hero folds

      CO is 46/28, 1.5 AF in 168h. Seems weak to me

      Flop: I cbet to get value from weaker Aces and 2nd pairs, draws

      Turn: I figure I don't really get value from much, so I check, planning to fold to bets, since I don't see many hands weaker than mine that bet

      What do you think about my play?

      I rarely say this about 3betting pre mutliway but I think you should make it a bit bigger.. Say around 3.60. On the flop, I just ship it in given stacks after 3betting pre to that sizing... ever here it's reasonable to shove because Ax never folds, you can look like a draw very often, are OOP. As played, I can't see myself check/folding the turn although indeed some hands beat us now, I still don't expect any ace to fold and J improves his KJ, QJ type hands. It sucks overall but I think it's just a shove on the turn as well. Value is thin but you win the pot a lot more often than when you check/fold and your overall EV will be higher.
