Should I have 3bet oop with this hand or flat call preflop.

I didn't cbet the flop as villian 8 fcb was 1/6 and villian 2 was 0/6.

Villian 8 12/9/2 over 372 hands Villian 2 50/20/8 over 86 hands.

Hi tonydolphin,

I agree with birdayy. Your line looks good. AKo is going to play best against a single opponent since you are most likely hoping for a top pair top kicker hand. You are oop and have a caller already in the pot. This looks like a great spot to squeeze. If you win the pot preflop, that is a good outcome. If you can isolate the original raiser that will be good too since you do have a strong starting hand.

As played, both call your 3b and you miss the flop. I would check as you did. Villain 8 doesnt seem to get out of line very often and we are going to have a hard time playing this hand oop against two villains.

GL and have fun at the tables!
