      I flat called as I thought I didn't need to protect - maybe a mistake? As played (and given blank turn and river cards), is it reasonable to go broke with my hand?

      no reason to slowplay here.

      any A will call you and still has decent equity against you, for example

      Board: Ah Kc 8d

      Equity Won Lost Tied Hand
      Player 1: 75.404 % 72.424 % 5.960 % 21.616 % Ac8h
      Player 2: 24.596 % 21.616 % 5.960 % 72.424 % AsTd

      + the 2 players behind you get quite good odds to call.

      So try to get your money in ASAP.

      If you raise him to 3$ you can happily shove the turn.

      I don't mind the way you played it. I don't think there is anything wrong with just calling flop. It doesn't seem too drawy to me.

      Hey Tim64,

      I like the way you played. The best draw villains can have on this dry board is a gutshot, so I don't see any real need to protect and SB seems quit aggro, so I would let him build up the pot for you and beside if you decide to 3-bet MP2 and BU will be less likely to invest more money in the pot. I find value >> protection here, although A9+ have still some equity against you.

      Regards,

      although A9+ have still some equity against you.
