      I'm not sure if there's an article about it, but in freeplays you should play your hands only when you have TP and J+ kicker, preferably Q+ kicker. Therefore just check down the hand.

      There is an article called Draws in a Freeplay Situation. But the Basic Article How to play after the Flop does cover this situation here.

      Trash hand after flop, easy c/f. Hero is not pre-flop aggressor, it's a multi-way pot and hero doesn't have strong draws, all of which make an even easier fold.

      Guys, I totally agree. I posted this hand mainly because I wanted someone to shout at me about how stupid I was as I played it very very badly. I don't know what I was doing. X( Thank you.

      Well if you really want to...

      Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! :rolleyes:

      Despite the fact that he had 93o , you easily were losing 99% against a higher Ace hand.

      Best regards,
