      I think, in this spot I often have a best hand, so I take a stab. Would have to c/f otherwise.

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      I prefer check/folding the flop here.
      Both villains has a lot of Ax in their range so I prefer not to cbet here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi!


      Ax is less likely with 2 aces on the flop.
      Would you consider betting the flop a mistake?

      Cbetting that flop is not a mistake if you are HU and you have possition but in this particular spot i would agree with check/folding.

      Imagine if you bet and get called by Bu or both guys, any card on turn excepting a 8 will cause you trouble and you won't really know where you at with the hand... are you going to fire again on Qd?( for exemple) into two opponents or being OOP... i think you see where I`m going with this.

      I think the main reason not to cbet here is that you are in a multiway pot, in a in-bettween position with a medium strenght hand on a unpromising board.

      cozacu, I agree that HU betting is fine.

      My general plan was to end the hand right on the flop. I`m giving up if called.

      Of course, the fact that there are two aces on the board makes the probability of them having an ace smaller, but I still think that we don't have enough fold equity (considering we are against two opponents) to justify a bet.
