      You're behind in most cases, so no need to invest more money here.

      AQo is very dangerous hand and I usually try to avoid such situations. While you only have overcards I would push here or just check-fold to save the money. Lets see what judges advice :P

      Hi mafaz,

      since you are pre flop oop raise to 6$ and push any flop. This way you have 7,5$ remaining you have 2 over cards and a back-door straight draw. You need 7,5/37=0,2 20% equity so easy call against a top pair.
