Late at night, 20 re straddle on. mp an aggressive player looking to double (1500) makes it 80, folded to me in the sb (1500)
i make it 200 with AsKhQs5h, folded to mp who calls.
flop comes j72 all spades.
I lead 300 (435) and get called.
Turn brings a Jc I check and mp bets 100 (1035)

I flat on the flop in this spot. Hands i fold by jamming, i got equity on, such as sucker wraps weak flush draw. I also don't think jamming will fold ace high flush draws. Possibly i can make sets of 3s fold but i expect to be called by ttxx and qqxx, both of which im not pushing much equity on and losing if they got strait blockers.

If we get raised from behind we can just commit. On blank non pairing turns we can still commit with enough combined fold eq and outs, if we hit straitening cards or flushes we can just gii happily imo for value.

both options should be plus ev with dead money in the middle with our combo draw, but i think flatting nets more.

Would like to know what others think.

1, 2, 5 game live straddle, 6 players.

Button is probably the best reg at this table, Tight aggressive applies pressure in position, hand reads well.

folds to the button who makes it $10,
Hero has AA in the small blind makes it $30
BB folds, straddle folds, button 4 bets to $75.

Decision # 1
5 bet or Flat? I Flat.

Flop ($150)
T97 rainbow

Decision # 2
Check or bet? I donk $100, Button calls.

Turn ($350)
Decision # 3
Check or bet? I went all in for $325

Is this call pre too loose? I feel its okay to go multi-way pre, and on the flop i can jam if i hit hard.

Can I fold here when he bets pot on the flop? Does he have Axxx enough to warrant the call. Equity puts me at 17% so its not enough on its on merits.

I think its fine pre in all honesty, online its a fold but live I feel with an ace suit its an ez limp. Not worried about it getting re-raised. Only the most premium holdings are going to reraise me and with only two people behind that can raise its like a 5% chance and even then i get to see what everyone else does.

Thanks for the replys.

With $340 to call i felt pretty much committed to the hand. Villain flopped a set of sixes which he didn't want to re-raise with on the button. He wasn't at all happy I called him, believing his own hand dead.

What do you guys think is better? To lead the flop or go for a check raise with 5 runners behind?

Also about my check raise sizing. Do you think it is arguable that there is some fold equity to be had by c/r full pot (260) instead of (200)?

I play these stakes, and still have much learning to do but here's my .02c

Preflop is super loose, i would insta fold that hand. Against a decent solid player I don't think u will find a fold often enough and heads up in position villain will call i would think 90% of the time. I know i would. Playing OOP sucks with non nutty hands, you will only ever win a small pot and lose big ones.

Flop Cbet is fine considering your preflop raise. Opp calls. A call reduces the likelihood of a set and massive combo draws in his range. So he is either calling for a safe turn, or floating you, with a small chance that he is holding 33, tt, etc.

Turn Turn cbet is fine i think again (balance against floats) but would fold to the reraise. Our hand is a dog to everything but air in his re raising range. I also don't like the call personally. Allows him to put you on the diamond draw and you are unlikely to get paid on the river if you hit and only called if your beat. Since If you had a combo draw you would have definitely jammed the turn. This is a jam or fold spot for me.

River c/fold I don't like the lead out. Never called by worse ever. and for 1/3rd pot you don't have much fold equity. At the very least villain has jtxx or j3xx, combined with hand narrowing and a non diamond river its an ez bluff catch.
