      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $50.75
      MP2:
      $69.81
      MP3:
      $66.92
      CO:
      $60.50
      BU (Hero):
      $50.00
      SB:
      $51.25


      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, T.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $1.50, CO folds, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($3.75) T, T, Q (2 players)
      MP3 bets $2.25, Hero calls $2.25.

      Turn: ($8.25) K (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $5.00, MP3 calls $5.00.

      River: ($18.25) T (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets ???


      MP 16/14, 74 hands


      How should I play ATo from the BU against a relatively tight openraiser? He has many hands that dominate me in his range (AT+,TT+)...but I have the BU (Blinds are tight, too).

      Could I just fold here or would that be too weak? r/f doesn't look fine, too...


      postflop: Should be ok. What betsize should I choose on the river? (AF 7.0(inf/inf/0.0) btw)

      I would shove it. Villian either has Qx, or Kx, and if you bet 3/4 he calls with both, but if you shove he most likely calls with Kx, because he has top fullhause, and thinks you never have QQ here, or rarely Tx.

      Hi,

      Preflop is usually a fold imo. Your weak offsuit ace plays badly against MP range. If he is wide enough to call then river is a shove imo. Like GingerKid said, he is never folding Kx, just get max value. If you bet smaller maybe he calls Qx but that's about it. Not that much extra for you if you compare how much more you win with a shove called by Kx or better.
