      Ok, I am not posting stats here, Instead I will give you A couple of different opponent examples so you can use your imagination in reviewing this hand. You can even come up with some different scenarios If you want.

      1. SB is 24/12 Player with 1.8AF and 26 WTS.

      2. SB is a 40/10 Player with 2.6 AF and 24 WTS.

      3. SB is a 12/04 Player with 1.5AF and 38 WTS.

      4. SB is a 16/12 player with 3AF and 26 WTS.

      Edit; For UTG+1 you can pick for example;

      1. 80/06 calling station with 0.8 AF and 48 WTS.

      2. 40/20 Maniac with 7AF and 48 WTS.

      I don't think I would push against two with that A on the board.

      The only way I could push this it would be against two maniacs, but they wouldn't check flop and turn would they?

      Against calling stations I would prefer to go for cheap showdown.

      Against solid players, they will only call you with a better hand, so no point in that.

      That's my humble opinion, but I admit, I haven't read the articles about playing against different kind of players yet despite I hit gold few days ago... :rolleyes:

      are there many boards as ugly as this? I would check fold no matter what , it's just so ugly and it's multiway

      Will better hands fold?
      Will worse hands call?
