      0,05/0,10 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , 5:spade:
      UTG+2 calls $0,10, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0,10, MP3 folds, CO calls $0,10, 2 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0,45) 2:club: , A:heart: , 3:heart: (4 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+2 bets $0,10, MP2 calls $0,10, CO calls $0,10, Hero calls $0,10.

      Turn: ($0,85) A:spade: (4 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+2 bets $0,30, MP2 folds, CO calls $0,30, Hero calls $0,30.

      River: ($1,75) 6:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+2 bets $0,50, CO folds, Hero raises to $1,00, UTG+2 calls $0,50.

      Final Pot: $3,75

      Maybe I should bet out turn, but seemed like UTG had ace and he just was bad player. I should bet/fold or check/call river, check/min-raise isn´t so good I think, even I have trips.

      Hi Kaitz20!

      I would bet on the flop (~0.35) to take down the pot and to protect your hand against flush draws. If you get called fire a second barrel on the turn when the second ace appears. On the river it's a check/call because this way you might catch bluffs from busted flush draws and don't lose too much money to a better ace.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Against 2 players I would have bet/fold flop. Against 3 players I decided check/fold, but I had to call minbet. I still wasn´t sure that I was ahead turn, so I check/called it also. River it should be also check/call
