      0,05/0,10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6:spade: , 8:spade:
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0,10, MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0,50, CO calls $0,50, 2 folds, Hero calls $0,40, MP1 folds.

      Flop: ($1,65) 2:spade: , T:club: , 8:club: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $2,50, CO raises to $16,18 (All-In), Hero folds, MP3 raises to $8,48 (All-In).

      Turn: ($26,31) K:diamond:
      River: ($26,31) 4:heart:

      Final Pot: $26,31

      Both stacks were deep, with right flop, I probably can stack at least one of them. So I decided to call. It´s said that 78, 67, 56 is the best hand against aces, why not then 86s should be the worst. Sadly didn´t hit two pair/trips, flush, so easy check/fold.

      Hi Kaitz20!

      In some cases it might be profitable to call 86s but not in this spot. You are out of position against only two opponents. Besides that: Even if CO is deep stacked it doesn't mean anything because you are not deep stacked. If you have more experience and play on higher limits it might be ok to play that hand but it depends very much on your opponents and the situation at the table. But in this spot I recommend to fold preflop. As played check/fold flop is correct.

      Good luck at the tables!
