Re: $10 snap folding AK

Please use a hand converter in the future. It makes it much easier to read a hand and people are more willing to give feedback/invest time if they see that you invested 30 seconds.

Uff, we are 6-handed here and only have a NFD + Overcards. I don't like your flop bet. I don't think we will ever take down the pot here. What are you trying to accomplish with your bet? Is this a "blocker-bet" where you try to get to the turn cheap? If we c-bet this board we should bet bigger.

I prefer a check on the flop and re-evaluate after the action comes back around to us. With 6 players on the flop all the sets are in their range and there are not many hands which go broke on this flop which be crush (Jc9c, 9c7c, AT). I tend to play these somewhat drawy boards versus many players quite passively.
