1/2/2 Deepish Against 2 unknowns

Currently sitting on 600 (BB)
Buyin Max - 400
MP: 180
SB: 500

**Special note, this game allows for a killpot and the table agreed that whoever won a pot, would be entitled to it. This "kill" in a nolimit game means that you are automatically in for $5 and in order to play the table has to play for a minimum of $10 (which would be now considered a limp, crazy eh?)

***My standard raise is always 3-4x+1bb per limp and doesn't change relative to hand strength. When its a kill pot, my opening raise is 3x plus 1 per limp

Table history - I've been table captain for the last 4 hours. They've seen me stick it in with pair and FD combo's, as well as TPTK or two pair. I keep chipping up and because of that the table has gone from opening the standard 3-4x to open limping

On to the hand.

Folds around to MP who open limps - $10
Button folds - (1)
SB limpes - $10
BB(Me) look down at AQ -- Raise to $40
Both call

Pot $121

Flop
A 3 8

SB leads for $75. Because I've been table captain, this looks SUPER strong, but I can't see myself folding just yet.

I call the $75 (Shoving seemed bad, fold was debatable with someone behind me).

MP Shoves ($140)
SB Shoves
BB pukes, recovers. sigh folds.

If this was heads up against SB, could we reevaluate any Club turn or obvious 2 pair? To nitty?

Looks about right. Heads up against SB evaluate no matter what the turn is but with TP and effective SPR around 4 it will be a very hard fold. This is where having a read on villain really matters.

Also with the kill pot in effect you should be raising more preflop. SPR is going to be small no matter what so aim for a tight range and setup a good bet flop/shove turn or give up situation post flop.

Pre, I probably raise to 50.

We need more reads on players to have any meaningful discussion.

Can’t fold. Have nearly direct odds against set. Call the AI.

How do you figure? AQ has 5.4% vs sets.

PS: I'm turbo mucking this against SB's shove.

Villain could easily have Axcc here, or an overplayed AJ/AT, etc. so don't think we can fold at this SPR. MP is inconsequential as we're clearly committed vs him/her.

Ha ha! I misread Hís hand. Thought he had AcQc so he had nut flush draw as well. With no draw this is a super easy lay down.
