      i agree... the best thing you can hope for is a split pot, but it is not very likely... i'd played it exactly the same... call the flop and fold on the turn

      Hello,

      Preflop: Don't cold-call here, raise it up or just fold, you are giving others good odds to Call with worser hands than you have.

      As played
      Postflop: OK.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      I think you played the hand fine.

      Veriz you cold call any hands? it seems like you recommend 3-bet or fold everytime.

      3bet or fold to a 5bb openraise vs decent TAG's. Vs fish a call IP is fine.

      Flop is ok.

      Turnfold fine here too: Villain c-bets flop 3way: must have an Ace. You call, saying you got an Ace too. Turn he bets again which I only see him do with AJ,AQ, AK or better.

      Ye, I do but why should I cold-call such hands like AQo what can lead to big mistake on flop. I'd rather Call SC and PP than AQo. I like to be PFA and take a stab at flop and very often take it down.

      Normally I would 3-bet, but villain raise is above usual raise.
      Also if I always 3-bet certain hands and always cold-call other hands ppl might notice.. although I might be thinking to far with this for the limit.

      If a villain cold calls me IP I can put him on certain hands quiet easily.
      Like I know I goto watch out for PP and drawy boards, A high board sometimes. The rest is pretty much in my favour. However some villains do cold call with hands like AQ from time to time which can get me into a bit of trouble since they outkick me.

      Hence cold-calling even with hands like AK, AQ if you know what villain raises from early positions is good sometimes I think

      I´d likely call turn, fold to river bet.
      AQ just is too strong there imo.
      And I´d also 3-bet it pf :)
