      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with K:diamond: , K:heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,40, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0,40, 2 folds, SB calls $0,35, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1,30) A:club: , Q:diamond: , 3:spade: (3 players)

      I assumed villain was a moron holding Ax, so I folded this hand. Was it a good or bad laydown?

      To be honest I think it was a bad decision cause those fishes raise everything. He could also have had KJ, KQ, KT, QJ, JJ, TT, 99, 88, etc.

      They really love to see flops and they don't care whether they're far behind as they still have a pretty good chance to hit their 2 or 3 outers.

      if you think that they are fishes, then you can't know what they have, they could have anything. If I was playing, and I see that ace, no more top pair or overpair anymore, I would fold

      Hey luitzen,

      on nl10 it's very best to just stick to basic strategy and KK on Axx board is trash, no matter how hard it is to accept that. So, in multiway pot c/f all the way.

      Just wait till you have a legitimate hand on the flop and you'll get well paid off.
