Default 2-5 NLHE Hand

9-handed game. 3 players involved in this hand:

Player A: New player sits in game and has played 3 hands and I've played with him before. He's a loose player and likes to push the action and has his girlfriend sit behind him. He's a small Asian guy. He's UTG +1. He starts current hand with $580.

Player B: Also loose, but not quite as clueless. Also Asian and also has girlfriend sitting behind him. Involved in a lot of hands and has been the established preflop raiser for the last couple hours. He has $1,400 to start hand. He's UTG +3.

Player B: Me. I have $1,800 and am in the big blind.

Blinds are 2-5

Player A raises to $20 in a somewhat early position preflop
Player B calls him
One other player calls the $20 preflop.
I make it $130 in the big blind with AsKh
Players A & B both call the $130 (which I didn't expect).

Flop comes KcJcTc.

1st Question: What should I do in my 1st to act position on this flop? (For the record I checked)

After I checked, Player A bet $180 out of his $450.
Player B then takes a couple minutes in the tank thinking and eventually calls the $180.

2nd Question: What do I do now?

Check is good.....even though you hit the K, I hate the flop against two callers. You may be ahead but they certainly have outs.....Pick a better spot against them IMO.

I agree, check-folding is probably the best play. Against tighter players, I'd make a small bet on the flop-- $200 or so.

Agree with this. That $200 would also be the last $200 that I put into the pot.

for the record,

I folded. Turn was Qd. River was a blank (offsuit 5 I think).

First player mucked without showing. Other player showed pocket 9s with the 9c.

Not surprising that you folded the best hand. The hand would have played out very differently if you had position, which is why I don't like 3-betting from the blinds with AK-- but I'm probably somewhat of a nit.

Ya'll let Player A draw pretty cheap. You are not afraid of him because he has has only $270 left.

The pot is $752 and Player B was reluctant to call.

You are afraid of an A,J,T,9,8, or any club, half the deck. Suppose Player B has around a 50% chance of making a draw, with $1,100 left. You could call $180 and shove if a blank hits.
