    You have to fold on the flop.
    You don't have any outs that wont help your opponents improve, so just fold flop.

      Hi ReggaePirate! With ace/rag in a league game, the only way that I'd even consider playing a bad hand like this, especially early in the tourney, is free from the BB. When everyone limps, I will check and see a free flop. The flop totally misses me and I absolutely need to check since I have nothing. When an opp makes a bet, even an abnormally small bet, I need to fold here. I have absolutely nothing and even if I could draw an A, I should have the worst hand due to being outkicked. League games are all about survival to get more league points, so due to this, I never want to give away even a single chip. I need to save every one of them that I can in order to last longer and get more points for the end of the month leaderboard. Players that continually chase hands will not end up with a larger payout from the leaderboard, as they will give away too many chips and lost a large number of points due to this. I want to do whatever I can to get more $$ from the leaderboard, as that's where the big $$ is from these games. Getting lucky every once in a while won't cut it. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

        Fold the flop, fold the turn.

        ABSOLUTELY fold the river. Key concept here, you are at the very best, chopping the pot. There is 540 in the pot heading to the river, so you are putting your entire tournament life on the line with this call to win a max of 270 (half the pot). If everyone has an ace you win 180. And if one of them has the flush, you're tourney is crushed. The risk/reward ratio here is terrible.
