      I'd 3bet pre. MP2 looks like isolating weak UTG limp.

      About the postflop play: I don't like your call on the turn. Either shove or fold. It's a tough decision where a fold is likely the right move. C/c flop and pot turn is usually set play for these limpers.

      I actually like all streets. Because you played it passively it's hard for him to put you on such a big ace and most prob thinks you have a flush draw, hence he keeps on punding. Yeah, AK beats you, but I can't imagine someone betting AK 3 times and not doing it with AJ (considering how you played it) or even bluffing QQ or something.

      I see there set often depending on UTG+1 stats as he limp/called and that one bad habit for a lot of NL2 players. When he c/c and then bets out I feel somehow beaten here as I doubt he would have AK if he didn't raise, but small pair or 3x even makes sense here. I would fold.
      If you really have seen him doing that and you know he's capable of it - shove it, as he may have worse Ax hands, but does he really pot them on turn so often?

      Hi,


      I'm fine with just calling preflop in position, keeping the fish in the pot with worse Ax hands will be a huge money maker, whereas if we 3-bet it's very likely that regular-looking guy will fold lots of worse hands and only continue with a range we're slightly behind of, unless he's somewhat bad and calls with like all pocket pairs out of position.

      Postflop I'd fold the turn, I just don't see "weak limper" UTG2 potting the turn with a worse top pair on that very coordinated turn card, he probably has two pairs at worse, most likely some random 3x hand he played exactly like we'd expect him to.


      Hope it helps.
