      I definately don't like calling A3s there preflop against some unknown guy, what are you planning to do with it? Your ace is almost always dominated, and you're like hoping to flop a mediocre draw. That's calling station play.

      As played on the flop just stick it in, you hit one of the best flops you can hope to hit with your hand. But fold preflop :P

      Ok, folding against unknowns seems reasonable.

      Against what kind of types should I flat call in position preflop with a hand like a low Axs?

      The only way i'm playing Axs against that guy is with a 3bet if i want to screw with him.



      The only situations i see myself flatcalling a raise with Axs is if :

      - there are other callers before me, preferably 2.
      - there are very loose passive fishes in the blinds that will come along with trash.


      We're of course playing mostly for the nut flush.
