      Hi,
      I've been quiet at the table for some time, so decided to make a steal raise
      Is call on the flop correct? My kicker is pathetic, but the opponent can easily be making a move against steal

      Thanks!

      This is the problem playing A-rag. you hit your ace but you have a bad kicker so you have c/c the coming streets to see if you are beat.
      The call is ok. Notice that If an the third would not came up on the turn, you have to be carefull. if villain bets strong you have to fold.
