      BTN wins $10.74 (net +$4.19)

      cozacu lost $2.80
      BB lost $1.10

      PF = Should I have gone with a re`raise vs BB` s sq so I simplify stuff?

      Flop= I though if I bet out here and I get raised it won't pretty and I would rather go for the free card regarding that the hand is multiway and it's quite big allready. I`m not sure if a check/raise would have been good here or not... maybe if villain is going to get broke here with AJ,KJ witch I doubt it would be the case.

      Turn= a straingt is out there too now. I don't think a K or A would help so I basicly have 9 clean outs. I consier making the call here just to chase a flush (18% eq, I got a bad price) a bad decision.

      What do you think about how the overall hand was played.

      Hey Coazacu,

      Useful to have stats - sometimes folding AKs pf is good here. With no info calling is ok. I prefer calling to 4betting. The downside is that BTN may tag along, but I don't think you get value from worse often enough 4betting in this spot.

      You have to call the flop given your implieds + direct odds. I don't like raising because BTN is often strong betting into 2 players, and I don't think you have any fold equity.

      If you knew BTN would barrel turn light here you could probably just shove. I think probably he just has a set though. Shoving will only be profitable if you have fold equity, and presumably you don't. So, postflop play is fine.
