    He check/raised me on the turn, and I reraised here, because he wasn't representing too much hand, he hadn't got a full stack. The Villain was unknown. But I assume it was a bad play from me.

    Hi Nocco,

    I'm actually more concerned about this check-raise than the one in the AA hand. In that hand the turn card made a bunch of worse hands possible in his raising range, plus the guy was very loose/unpredictable. In this hand the turn is a total blank unless he's got specifically 44. He's not likely check-raising the turn with worse pairs, those would just be calling down, and a flopped draw if it was going to play aggressive would usually do so right on the flop (in the AA hand the villain could have turned a bunch of draw potential, but here there's no turned draws). So I think we are either looking at 8x, TT, a very rare 44, or a total bluff. Without reads, I think the baluga theorem applies more in this case.
