      Rush poker, so no reads or anything. I was unfocused when I played the hand, and when I review it now I pretty much hate the way I played it (except for preflop).

      Should I've just flatted flop? As played, what do we do on the turn? UTG do looks insanely strong there imo. I did think about folding turn, but though it was a little weak. If we flat the flop, what do we do on X :club: , Jx, 8/9/T etc on the turn? Thx

      Without reads i think it's fine really, UTG is either rather strong or a huge fish, i'm fine taking the chance that he's an idiot and calling it a cooler if he turns out not to be. SB's line looks even stronger to me if he's not a fish, but he might be a fish as well.

      Frankly i don't think you can avoid those spots in rush poker at nl5, if you start folding AA all the time when unknowns get weird you'll just be folding all day long, in my opinion. That being said i don't play rush poker on a regular basis, so if most of the field are just setmining regs, maybe you can find a fold.

      Hope it helps.
