Should I have folded my AA after he went all in on the flop?

Hi 52,

I don't think so. If we were playing deep stacked we can get into a discussion about the merits of folding vs. continuing, but on a short stack with a low stack to pot ratio it should be profitable to get all in here when we pot the flop and he puts us all in. He can be doing this with many worse 1 pair hands and draws, as well as the hands ahead of us, and we have to call .50 more into a pot of 1.17 so only need 30% equity, we will easily have that here even against a tight player who can show up with TT-KK in a spot like this.

I definitely agree w/ what TheLangolier says. You've already put in a huge amount of your stack in the pot and there's also a solid chance that you are ahead, flipping, or slightly behind. With all of the money invested, it should make up for the times you're behind too. Keep in mind from your opponents perspective, he might just feel the need to shove any hand he feels content with continuing with because the stacks remaining are shallow.

Absolutely agree with what Dave and Randy said, I'd call here.

Also, he was a poster and called your raise which could indicate he is happy to just get the action going and gamble it up here
