      BU - ( $12.16 USD ) - VPIP: 50, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 2

      CO - ( $5.00 USD ) - VPIP: 100, PFR: 100, 3B: 0, AF: 0.3, Hands: 2

      PF: I decided to flat because they do look fishy and I want to dominate them w my range and AKs is a nice hand to play multiway.

      Flop: Not sure if I should 3-bet here? I thought calling would be good here cause I can keep CO in e pot and then have great odds to draw.

      Turn: Fuck. I took a long time but decided to call in e end because I had such a mega draw.

      This hand cracked my brains real hard.

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: So if they look fishy don't you want to make them put more money in the pot with their weak ranges and gain initiative?

      Calling is a mistake here and we should 3-bet.

      Postflop: As played calling to keep both in is perfectly fine but what are we doing on the turn?

      What do you think your equity is there versus 1 and then 2 guys? Do some equilab and surprise yourself :)

      3-bet pre-flop, if they are fish they are likely to call. When they do, you have initiative and can sometimes bet and win the pot without a real hand. And if they fold, you got the dead money on the pot, which is fine.
