Not much info on the villain..had only 4 hands on him and he limped them all..One important thing that helped my decision was that wen the openraiser opened and i 3bet..the call from the villain looked like an instant auto-call trying to call the open raise and not the 3bet..hence i continued firing till the end...Is this play correct? Please comment...

the villain mucked Q10off..

wow really bad play by the villain. did you make a note?

i would have put him all in on the flop. i actually dont want him to call, because i dont know where i stand if he calls on that flop with his stacksize. so i want to win the pot right there

you could have made your 3B a little bigger because you will be out of position during the hand, but thats optional

gl at the tables

Hi Nee0903.

I have to agree with Sjekkk, if you are going to c bet the flop at all versus that tiny stack, you may as well put him in. You hold the nut no pair hand, and unless he holds an 8, a 3, or a pocket pair, you are ahead.

If you have him on as wide as a 75% call range, your AKs has about 65% equity with AKs, and while he may not call with any un-paired hand, you really cannot bet ANY amount without committing yourself pretty hard for the rest of his stack.

Hope it helps.

All in on the flop, even if he caught a pair you still have 2overs!
