Re: AKs - nut flush draw + overcards on turn. How do you play it?

27.25/11 = 2.5:1 = 28%

9 outs (flush) + lets say your overcards are only good 2 thirds of the time 4 outs (overcards) = 13 outs = 25%ish chance of hitting on river...

Re: trip Q\'s good kicker, c/r on turn

Not a very good situation, great you have position though.

Problem here is even if you are ahead right now, it's not by much. I could find a fold here...if you really want, you could call and see...

Raise preflop but other then that I like the way you played this.

I guess I need to elaborate.

Open limping/limping preflop is pretty weak and unnecessary at lower limits. Especially in this...

Re: NL50: AQo in sb 3-handed

I'd push flop.

He could have AJ...maybe even low suited aces, as well as some flush draws, can also think you're bluffing and call his midpair like JJ etc etc...yes you're ahead enough here.
