      Hi,
      On NL10 no need to call UTG raise with Axs but if you call that you should look for fd, 2pairs,or trips to little card.On flop u have only II pair+backdoor fd,not worth to call pot size bet(odds 2:1).O turn you have fd,but on turn odds not so great for fd and again pot size bet.I think u should fold.
      But I want to ask the coach for learning purposes:
      I read that article: Using Range Calculations to Make Better Decisions
      By Brian 'sbrugby' Townsend and want to learn think in EV categories( of course not on NL10).
      http://www.cardplayer.com/magazine/article/16739
      ( on pages bottom)
      Suppose opp have:
      Board: 6s Jc 9h Kc

      Hand 0: 43.669% 43.67% 00.00% 807 0.00 { Ac9c }
      Hand 1: 56.331% 56.33% 00.00% 1041 0.00 { TT+, AQs+, AQo+ }

      So we can win 6.8 $ (if he not call river) or loose 3.4$( flop+turn bets).
      EV= [6.8$x 43.6%]+[3.4x56.33%]= 2.96+[-1.04]=1.04$
      So calling on turn is right.Is my calculations right?How do you do it quickly in a hand?
      Thanks :)
      Good luck :)

      thanks again for your fast answer, i called this one by accident but wasn't sure if my post flop play was ok, i figured once again that he missed his flop so thought my 9 may have been good, then fd on turn, i have real problems folding fd's, think that and not folding blinds are my biggest leaks

      I used to call raises with Ax suited, but once I checked my statistics and this move was so big leak, Iwas losing so much money with this hand and after that I never play this hand, exept ofcourse when there are 2-3 limpers or I´m in late position and blinds are tight.

      When I´m tilting, I´m calling shortstacks allin with 22.

      I would fold pf.
      Youi don´t often enough hit trips/two pair/flushdraw and just have to fold a lot of times and if you hit A or 9 then loose alot of money postflop.
