      Known players:      
      Hero:
      $5.00
      MP2:
      $3.88
      BU:
      $15.96

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.71 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , 9:diamond:
      2 folds, MP2 calls $0.25, 2 folds, BU calls $0.25, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.85) Q:heart: , 3:club: , A:spade: (3 players)
      Hero...?

      Top pair decent kicker in a freeplay situation, given unless slowplayed I can discount AJ+, AA,QQ and most of the time 33 right? ATs and A3s could definately be in a limping range of such players. Is it possible to go broke here with top pair in a freeplay situation? Check to induce bluff or get more value from Qx? Thanks!

      I bet/fold $0.75 on the Flop and continue my betting if you are HU because most likely they have a weaker ace.

      If one raise, it is mostly with a better ace in my opinion

      This is what happened:


      Flop: ($0.85) Q:heart: , 3:club: , A:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP2 calls $0.50, BU calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($2.35) 8:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.25, MP2 calls $1.25, BU folds.

      River: ($4.85) 6:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      Final Pot: $4.85

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows una pareja de ases (Ac 9d)
      MP2 shows una pareja de ases (Ad 4d)

      Hero wins with una pareja de ases (Ac 9d)


      Thanks for the review Gerv!
