    This is a very sticky situation on flop with an overpair and I want to ask what is the best line to play this AA hand after we get a raise on flop? Should we fold, raise or call OOP?

    Hi ImStylo,

    I would 3bet to atleast 0.35 or even 0.4; When we are OOP we want to 3bet bigger to make up for our positional disadvantage.

    Villain seems to be playing a TAGish style so when they call the 3bet I think its unlikely that they would have KK because they would have 4bet preflop. I think they might 4bet AK sometimes too but they could also call IP. We block the NFD so its not possible for them to be raising with a hand like AsQs. The only hands that I see raise this flop with is AK, KsQs, 88, or a 76s for a loose 3bet call. Against that range we are basically flipping so getting the money in with AA in a 3bet pot seems reasonable to me.
