This hand from last night.

The villains first hand was QQ he got in preflop against 66 then from BB a couple of hands later defends his BB and calls a min raise with K6s and checks it down to the river and then tightens up, until he gets QQ and again gets in in preflop played them very aggressive then a couple of hands later this hand.

Hey DrDonkin

Mmmm interesting spot.

It's hard to imagine that villain would be raising us on the flop with A10, which limits him really to AQ and AK but I expect him to be 3betting these preflop sometimes, and we have an A ourselves which also decreases the chances of him having an ace.

Having said that I do put this guy on AQ or AK, more likely AK.

When he raises the flop to more than 4 x the size of our cbet ,it will be very had to get to a showdown cheaply if at all if we decide to call the raise. Another thing which makes our life difficult is being out of position.

I think I'm going to tank fold this spot. I feel he doesn't have a set very often as he would be way more inclined to just call your cbet instead of make a massive raise.

The massive raise = strength imo so I like your fold.

Nice hand, Chris.
