      Pre-flop: Q: A: ($0.60)
      UTG folds, MP1 folds, MP2 checks, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.25, Button folds, SB calls $0.15, HERO checks

      Flop: 8: T: J: ($1.00)

      Turn: 8: T: J: 4: ($3.00)

      Since I played in many tables, I finished in sitout and checked preflop.
      At flop, with a gutshot and 2 overcards but not being the preflop aggressor, what is the best move?

      You should play your AQ as preflop aggresor, in general I push from the blinds with 2 limpers.

      As played I believe it's not worth to fight for the pot on flop if you missed it and don't have a monster draw. On this flop you can at most have a 10 outs which is more or less a regular draw, so I'd say a good fold.

      Hi theperni,

      first of all raise/push preflop, then on the flop its tricky you have a double belly buster and a backdoor nut flush draw sometimes also the ace is a clean out. so its close between folding or even pushing. but a fold is ok I think and has less variance.
