      Hero raises....

      If he has Ax he calls, if he doesn't he folds.

      If he doesn't have Ax he will give up turn anyways.

      you're aim for this hand is to get value and protect, due to the ammount of people in the pot.
      The worst move here is to call because if he does have an ace of any kind (especially ak/aq/aj) he will proberly go broke by the turn, and if you just called you're inviting the rest of them to catch you up, without even building yourself a pot.

      So RAISE to around 7-8$ IMO

      I prefer fold or if you want to play your hand ip then 3-bet pf.
      You fiond yoursefl too many bad situations with just top pair bad kicker.
      I also think raising flop is a little bettter, then you can bet 1/2 pot on the turn and shove river
      SInce board is dry, then most of the times people don´t give you any credit and are happy to call down with AK

      ok granted that

      but who has AK here? no one. certainly not the people behind me and initial raiser's range could very well be one gap connectors, he was loose aggressive and that is why i chose to not reraise PF, if he repops me i am folding to a bluff.
