with the raise, I'd have put them on a K.... and I would have folded on that flop.

You call that hand on the flop ant what are you doing when the ace turns and you have a huge 2 pair? You would really have a hard time getting away from the hand at that point and very possibly would have railed.

Absolutely the correct fold on the flop. Hand would have cost me more to fold because I'm raising,not calling,the original 100 raise post flop just to see where I am.

Obv. correct fold as played- yet imo- poker 101 has to be looked at here- you have an utg limper- a min raise from you in mp2 isnt protecting your hand- is bloating the pot-and with AQo i really only want a heads up situation- and with the flat call from the button-gives utg huge odds to come along- if i gonna play AQo from that pos. ima betting 4x minimum to let them know i am serious and to hopefully get utg to fold--- jmo-- gl monk...

On a side note- i always try to remember who i am going after in any pot- if first to act obv. it is the blinds- if are limpers ahead of me well them also- and thats when stack sizes and pot odds determine the my bet sizing--

Agree on the preflop play, raise more to isolate the limper, don't like the min-raise at all.

On the flop good fold, your 2nd pair is almost never winning here and your equity vs. their ranges isn't good. nld.
