      Hello,

      Playing without stats this game
      Was this a good laydown?

      I know the flop should have been bet. I think i must have been distracted to do this play (at least i hope so)
      The other players were tight and passive but that was only an impression based on 20 hands or so.

      Anyway, what I'm really interested in is what the proper play would have been on the river.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $6.93
      BU:
      $2.84
      SB:
      $2.31
      BB:
      $2.41
      UTG1(Hero):
      $10.16
      UTG2:
      $2.10
      MP1:
      $2.00
      MP2:
      $2.00
      MP3:
      $13.26


      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with K, A.
      Hero raises to $0.35, 3 folds, MP3 raises to $0.60, CO calls $0.60, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.25.

      Flop: ($1.95) A, Q, 2 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks, CO bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50, MP3 calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($3.45) 5 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks, CO bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50, MP3 calls $0.50.

      River: ($4.95) A (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks, CO bets $4.10, Hero folds, MP3 folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.95.

      so based on equilator

      71% equity vs 2 opponents with a 20% range

      Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy to passive.

      Preflop fine, although I prefer a 4X BB raise.

      Flop: BET about $1.20

      Turn: BET $2

      River: BET, prepared to shove

      I don't understand how you can have 71% equity... I think the range you've selected for both villains must be very unrealistic... you have to remember that this is a 3bet pot. MP3's range is likely to be quite tight... but CO's range can be relatively looser (including suited connectors, suited aces and pocket pairs).

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Hero: 37.336 % 31.152 % 12.367 % 56.481 % AKo
      MP3: 24.000 % 20.679 % 6.642 % 72.679 % JJ+, AJs+, KQs, AQo+, KQo
      CO: 38.664 % 35.802 % 5.725 % 58.473 % QQ-JJ, 55, 22, A5s+, KQs, QJs, JTs, T9s, 98s, AQo+


      I used equilator for the ranges very quickly but I think aside from being too passive pre and postflop (preflop you should 4bet there with CO flat calling, and postflop is obvious), you don't have the required pot odds to call his river pot bet. Although, it is tempting to call and isn't that bad because you likely induced worse aces to bet... but I think you know that you could have likely avoided this hard decision by betting yourself.

      Hi,


      We don't really want to see a 3-way flop out of position with AKo so i'd just 4bet preflop and call it off against unknowns.

      As played on the flop your hand is as good as it's gonna get, so either take the betting lead or raise that ridiculous 1/4 pot probe bet. And from there bet every street until all the money is in the pot.


      Hope it helps.
