What is the best way to play this, looks like he has AA with the min 3bet and 5bet ?

First time I have noticed this player, he is from Brazil.

Thanks

If you thought the min bet was AA I think you should have call it looking to set mine. However with KK, I'm raising with the hope of getting all in preflop. Yes he could have AA, but he could also be min-raising KK or QQ as he believe these to be super strong hands. Also the min-raise is a fishy move so he could randomly turn up with all sorts of cards. I'm happy to get all-in and if he does have AA I still have about 20% equity.

Hi,

I agree his line looks very strong (the min 3b is a fish tell of a big hand) but you can see players stacking off AK or QQ and sometimes worse like this as well so without any reads I'm probably 6-betting and getting it in here with KK. Just have a hard time finding a fold with kings in this spot with so many micro-stakes players overplaying AK in spots like this. Not fist pumping but ok to get it in imo.

I did shove and he did have AA, just a cooler then.

Thanks.
