Live 5/10 Limit
Villian: middle aged standard loose passive. Doesn't raise with QQ, sees 70% of flops, havn't seen him raise with less than 2 pair.
5 limpers including Villian in MP, hero is Button with A2 of diamonds, Hero calls.
checks around to Hero who checks
UTG bets 10, UTG +1 calls, UTG +2 calls, Villian calls, Hero Calls
Check, check, check, Vilian bets 10
do i have to call here getting 9:1 with top pair?
Pre flop, I'm torn between raise and fold (raise due to skill edge on field, fold due to awful RIO of hand). Never just call here, you won't get paid off enough if no one else has an ace to balance out the money you can expect to lose if someone else has a bigger ace.
River, just fold. Trust your read and expect him to show a bigger ace or a made flush.
Turn is also questionable. What's the read on UTG? If this a player who could be b/f'ing a jack? If so, you should raise. If he almost always has top pair plus, you should fold. If he is at all balanced, I think calling is fine. However, given villain limped UTG, he probably sucks and won't value bet a jack here, and almost always has an ace. So, I think a case can be made to fold right here.
Side note, in SSLHE, place more value on hands with big potential, and less value on hands with good unimproved showdown equity. 76s is a much better hand multiway than A2s, IMO, because it's easier to play, and you're much more likely to get paid off when your monster hits. Oh, and you won't pay someone to see their better hand.
