      hi, just posting my first hand here, so applogies for the format, having some problems figuring it out. so as you can see i had AK with a gut shot on the flop, which was beaten in the end by pocket 10s. any advice would help, I am trying to play SSS, but on NL50 you have to quite aggressive i have found. cheers!

      I would call here. Villain has probably got an overpair or Ax, a set is possible but unlikely. Against 22+, AQ+ you have 38% chance of winning, which is good enough given your pot odds.

      Heya Axler :s_cool: welcome,

      Could you use the Elephant Button pressing Forum instaed of copy paste the text since the converter uses bb codes like ( :_c ) to apply suits in the hand for example ;)

      You got like 9 or 10 outs at most and with 2.15:1 you need 8 outs to be profitable so I would shove this one if there aren't any flushdraws out there against you
