Bigblind play AA62trpples., postflop play, checkraise and

First of all I have to say my strategy regarding cashgame buy ins switched to 80bb, step by step.
Reason is that I have played plo5 few months ago with full buy in and coldcalling to much for draw hands or punt draw hands, that was my biggest leak, and this hand is a good example. I mean this type spots is where I punt for only FD. Only the different is now that I don’t do that anymore but I am not sure about this play.
Ok, sitting on the bigblind, faced 2 limpers and I know from the CO that he is very loose passive, hit or fold on the flop and coldcalling preflop quite often with some ds ragged, ss connected hands…
UTG, not much read about him. Only that he plays a lot of hands.
This play on the flop is…and should be played as…?
Checkraise? CheckraiseCall? CheckraiseFold? Lead/call or lead/Fold?
I was thinking that he could have set Jacks or 2p + straightdraw
About the CO, he has probably also have some diamonds in the hand, which means decreasing equity of my flushdraw.

This is a mistake you make……but you are able to figure it out on your own.
Go in here and plug in the hands(or ranges) and figure out your equity.
And make sure you understand SPR(stack to pot ratio). Do a little thinking about SPR, what it means? How equity and especialy raw equity translates to dollar ev(expected value)
You have raw equity here, so how much money of this pot is for sure yours?
And then do the math and do you own assumptions.
Hope it was helpfull.

Hi @POKON ,
I would still check your AA pre ( as a very big exception to all AA). The playability, especially with 3 players on the flop will be very bad, considering we have close to no connectivity. As you can see from your hand, despite flopping overpair+NFD it actually is incredibly difficult to play.
Regarding flop, I think the checking decision is fine, check raising can also be fine albeit close, however I would generally agree that you dont wanna fold your hand, as there are too many hands you are performing very well against (combodraws, TP+FD hands etc). While you are unlikely ever gonna be a massive favourite, with all the money in the middle you dont have to be. And, at worst, you got your FD and set outs which all draw to the nuts.
