Either fold or 3-bet pre, mostly fold at Zoom. Over calling with a weak unsuited Ace is a leak.

Hi Naturo,

I've done a few of your hands now, and the theme I'm seeing is that you are playing bad values in bad situations. This is another one. Calling here preflop with A3o is a big leak. It can be a 3b resteal hand with the right reads (which you don't have) otherwise this is just a fold.

Post flop fold I think is good, this opponent is c-betting large into a 5 handed pot, which shows a ton of strength, and we don't close the action. The draw to the small end of the straight and back door flush isn't likely worth continuing here since we can still get blown off it, and if we make our hand it's pretty obvious as the board will be scary.
