Default 3/6NL: I got an Ace! Sweet.

I have sat down not too long ago (about an orbit), and have been watching the table for one prior. No specific reads on anyone, though. What do you all think of the pre-flop steal?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $6 BB (9 handed) converter

MP3 ($618.40)
Hero ($559.10)
Button ($991.25)
SB ($709.25)
BB ($157.85)
UTG ($1525.70)
UTG+1 ($320.65)
MP1 ($346.10)
MP2 ($552.05)

Preflop: Hero is CO with A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 3[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
UTG calls $6, <font color="#666666">4 folds</font>, Hero calls $6, <font color="#CC3333">Button raises to $24</font>, SB calls $21, BB calls $18, UTG calls $18, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $224</font>...

... I don't know. It just seemed right, somehow.

that looks pretty ridiculous to me... who limps in the cutoff after another player has already limped, and then reraises a ridiculous amount into 4 callers? This smells... You are hugely dominated by most hands that would consider calling this donkey play. I would rather you have something like 78s to pull this move than A3o

A3o or 87s it makes no diff

78s is way better than A3o. It's still 30% vs KK and its closer to 40% against AK.

you think you are going to get action from AK? i don't think the guy with AK is putting you on some weird Ax and shoving, and he doesn't have odds to shove against 22

if you think you get action from QQ/KK/AA you want the A3o barely.. if you think AK shoves it all in then you want the 87s by a bit

regardless language like "way better" is just hyperbole

If I'm the villain here, I'd take a stand with a lot of "mediocre" hands.

Sort of.

Axo has very little value in general, whereas suited connectors play better against almost every hand, and I'd much rather have 87s than A3o in almost every single possible scenario.
