  • 5nl FR Zoom - AA v Set

    Hi guys, This hand is pretty straight forward. Just wanted to confirmation if you guys believe this was just an unlucky hand. Villain was an unknown Please see my thought process below: Preflop Holding the pocket rockets, therefore a raise (value bet is in order) Flop Villain bets small, I thought of this as a weak holding (A FD blocking bet to see a free card) so I discount the weak bet, and bet for value. Villain now raises me. Now to me this looks strong, but I don't think it would be wise (when I don't know anything about the villain) to just put him on a set. I say this because of his stack size. So I felt I would just shove now, hoping that I was good. I think I had to be good 15% of the time to call his bet. Anymone else doing the same here - given his stack size? Surely Standard, Standard, STANDARD! Cheers, Matt

    OTF he make a ridiculous bet of 25ct in a pot of $1,50 into 2 persons. You make a fine sized raise and he minbets you leaving just 40cents behind.

    Not very standaard, imo. I would say this looks really really strong so yeah I deffo see agruments of folding AA on his 3bet OTF.

    But... I'm sure, I would shove here too, like you did against a shortstacker.

      Villain 8 should have really been folding to the 3 bet pre he only start the hand with 50ishBB, he could well have been pushing a FD TP or STR D. I think this is, as you say a 'standard' spot If however the 6 seat hung around after the flop action i would have been folding a ton... GL at the tables Euan

        With less than 1.5 SPR I am committing with Aces. I think we can also call and bet the rest OTT we allow them to bet with all their weak Qx.

          Standard given the stack sizes, although a donkbet in a multiway pot is often strong. If the donkbet was a little bigger I'd just call, but raising to get committed is fine in this spot.
