Hi pek,

Even without reads, it seems like an easy fold to me. Our relative hand strength on this board is very weak, and we're not getting a good price to draw to a king. AA is the nuts preflop, but we have a lot of stronger hands in our range on the turn here... When you consider that we have all the sets, KK, AK, KQ in our range, AA is now at the bottom of our made hands, no problem folding the bottom of our range to a big turn raise.

thanks for that clarification Dave
do you think that I should skip a bet on the turn also when I saw that card?
yeah... you say easy fold... I'm 99% sure he got me beat but it's always hard for me to lay those rockets down...

It's tougher without reads being out of position, but yes I think we can just check/fold the turn. I can't imagine worse hands calling a bet.
