      Am i able to call on the turn with my pair and flush draw, if we suppose that the fishy 3rd player will most likely call as well ? Would it be possible to call as well if i only had the FD? On the river should i play check/raise or directly put the rest of my stack on the pot ?

      I catch nothing on the flop but the only reasonably tight player in the hand folds , and i am up against 2 fishes. Can i go all in there with my overcard outs or should i fold anyway?

      Opponent is a fish who i have seen raising with crap hands and he is very shortstacked too. Is it ok to go all in with AQs there although its not strictly a reraise hand ?

      I feel i played this like a pussy. This opponent is tight and ive seen him flat calling me preflop with high pairs like TT and QQ. Obviously my problem here is that i have already over 2x of a stack. I hoped to take it down on flop but when he calls i get kind of scared but with his big bet on the turn i know i am commited anyway . How should i be playing this on the turn? Am i getting broke either way with my aces against this tight type of opponent ?

      1) If you think that UTG+2 calls, then it´s good call on the turn. River: check/all is nicely played. MP3 maybe calls your push but maybe not, if he only has pair of kings, so check/all- in is fine.
      2) I would fold turn. One player bet half the pot and other calls. Betting half the pot means that he probably has two pair or set and you could be drawing dead
      3) If MP3 really raises with crap, then going all-in is fine. Only problem, UTG could also call with his low pocket pair and you could not be favourite. I don´t like to camble here with AQs
      4) If you want to take down pot right now, then bet pot. If he has QJ, he has really tough calling that bet. Flop isn´t so dangerous so you are probably only beaten by the set and you have to pay him off. The way you play: I don´t know if you should push turn, you don´t want him to get free card (any diamond and 9, k, q, j is dangerous to you), so I would push all-in.

      1) NH

      2) After a bet and call 3.5ish:1 is not good enough to put in any money on the flop IMO

      3)Looks like a good spot to gamble.

      4) The turn c/r will extract an extra bet from those players that float your c-bets. 46BB deep then AA needs to be played like the nuts. NH.
