      Hi degnic!

      Imo you played this hand well. There is no way of folding it on the turn. even if you are behind you have many outs to improve.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I would have called the flopbet or raised less (~2,5) because at that point you don't really have a hand with showdown value, but that's my (defensive&cautious) way of playing. :D

      Degnic is in fact a favourite versus AA on the flop and only a slight underdog on the turn here.

      NH as played. You'd not be making a huge mistake even if you knew the SB had a set.

      Another possible way to play here is to use our relative position by just flat-calling the SB's lead and hoping that the button raises. We can then raise AI with hopefully some extra dead-money in the pot from MP1 and the SB.
