Here is how hand played out.
Hero called $50 reraise and $400 in pot with $300 behind each player hero having less.
Button bets $200..
Hero believes he is ahead of both preflop ranges and at this getting 5:1 to call. I probably rushed my decision and didn't think it through and didn't think about what they could have after flop...I just didn't want to get pushed off winning hand again.
$800 in pot.
Button goes all in for less 100, UTG calls,
I call all in less than $30.
I Show Two pair AQ
UTG wins with 99 for Set.
Button mucks and I ask to see hand and shows A7 off suit.
So initial re-raiser, BTN, was gambling and trying to push us off with worse hand.
UTG got lucky with Set. He would of played pocket 10s-KK same way I believe.
While I could of folded preflop.... not sure I should of folded. Maybe reraise BTN. But UTG would of called to see flop.
However, I pulled up a poker calculator after hand and now learned (for first time) that in a 3 way pot preflop the following is true.
If another player has an A and another any pocket pair - My equity is 33% against pocket pair 55% and now knowing this...I might fold preflop knowing that with these two players my chips are going all in no matter what the flop....which is gambling...
So I learned something by sharing. Ty.
Why do you even think folding pre is an option? Also your logic here is not sound because btb could have 77 88 99 TT JJ KJ KQ. Yeah sure given the specific hands you should fold? Even at 33% it's even money if you get it all in. You have to raise this hand pre on your first action or 3 bet yourself pre. If you get 3 bet you have to call oop. As played id prob lose my stack but I would never play this this way
