      10 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $16.65
      Hero: $30.60
      UTG+2: $20

      Button: $25.20
      SB: $21.05
      BB: $8.75

      Pre-flop: (10 players) Hero is UTG+1 with A:diamond: A:spade:
      UTG folds, [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $1[/color], 2 folds, MP2 calls, 2 folds, Button calls, 2 folds.

      Flop: 6:heart: J:heart: 9:club: ($3.35, 3 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $2.75[/color], MP2 calls, Button calls.

      Turn: 6:spade: ($11.6, 3 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $9[/color], [color:#cc0000]MP2 calls all-in $8.34[/color], [color:#cc0000]Button raises all-in $21.45[/color], Hero ???



      Can anyone find a fold on the turn? If this is a heads up pot i would insta-fold, but over here i have a 50$ pot and i only need to call $10 more, am i committed?

      Another line i can take on the turn would be check/calling, and check/folding river? But there are 2 people behind me, 1 or both of them could very well have a draw and i don't wanna give away a free card.

      Or maybe i should just dump this hand on the turn? :( Not worth playing this hand OOP vs 2 opponents?

      Getting raised like this on the turn normally means one-pair is no good. If button is a normally passive type then perhaps I can find a fold here. Without reads though I'm going to make a crying call (getting nearly 4:1) and probably reget it. AA OOP is not easy to play.

      If i have to call $10 to win $50, ain't i getting 5:1?

      Oh and i agree that AA is hard to play OOP

      It look likes JJ or 99, 99% sure

      Nunki is right, if u get re-raised on the turn most of the times u are beated (with your AA), for me, that indicates a set on the flop

      ye, you r gettin 1 to 5 ... and cant fold it with these odds. against two GOOD players which i wouldnt imply on nl25 you maybe COULD check the turn because most often one of them will have you beat. but against unknowns you should bet and call the allin.

      to me it looks like he's on a flushdraw and now just takes the opportunity to bluff a set (what looks most unlikely as he called your 4bb raise preflop)
