      Ur in first position so u got no information, ur behind against 22+, u will meet resistance from 44 and 88+, check is better here on the flop imo.

      Hi gutshotstraightdraw!

      I agree with rubysilesia. You are out of position with A-high against two opponents who easily can have a pocket pair which they won't fold to a bet on the flop. Check/fold is the right play here imo. Like you played it I would definitely check/fold on the turn because you didn't improve.

      Good luck at the tables!
