      Hi Maya,

      Nice hand imo! Even though the turn bet is small, it's not worth calling since you have nothing but an A high in a 3way pot.

      Hello maya1984,

      nice hand. Against unknown c/f all the way is best choice. You could think of calling turn with so good odds and 2 overcards, but since there are 2 FDs possible I just prefer to fold because your outs might not be clean and can make you lose even more money on the river if you hit A or Q.

      Regards,
