      Hi,

      I think I have played this hand okay. An example of how very important position is when your hand is very vulnerable. If I was OOP to MP3 guy holding AJs I would have had to let this one go.

      I elect to just call pre as I have position and we are very deep. I flop TPTK so just elect to call the CBET from MP3 for pot control which is probably more important here than bloating the pot as I feel I am too weak to raise?? and too strong to fold in this spot??

      On the turn it is checked round to me and I bet half pot which looking back is a mistake as I should probably bet more like $3.20 as there are lots of draws out??

      When it's checked round to me I check behind which is pretty standard here??

      TY,
      Zach

      Hi.

      I think Flop and turn play are both fine. Don't think you should bet so large, you just look really strong here.

      This river is tricky, KT got there. How often does MP3 c/c the Turn with KT? I'm not sure. maybe we can go for thin value from KQ/QT vs SB, but overall this is just such a bad card. I think given the 3way dynamic I probably prefer checking it back on the River. You just rep such a strong hand when you bet here, I fear that you may even be over-representing your hand and thus you are not going to get any value from worse.

      Thanks.
