villain is unkwown
on second thought, i shouldnt have folded.
he could have JJ or AJ, but most of the time he will have a bad A or a draw otherwise he would have raised instead of shoving, am i right?

heey espada, i think you have to call, there are better hands in his range like 33 jj aj. but people jus tlove to shove their flush draws. i think if he had a hand like aj he would just flatted and maybe check shove the turn. i think you have to call here but its not an easy, im intersted to see what the rest thinks

Hi Espada,

I agree with ado again, I would always stack this off here. Villain is again sitting on an odd stack of 79bb's, so probably fishy... it's a 3-bet pot with a low stack to pot ratio and we hit our hand taking us to the top of our range. While he can certainly have sets or AJ, sometimes at least he would just call our c-bet, or click it back and min-raise, rather than shove. Other hands are conceivable here too, notably a flush draw. But he will also sometimes turn over a worse ace that he's shoving "to protect his hand", and once in a while a random bluff... like he thinks you're making a move on him and he decides he's going to out play you right here, this hand, and shoves knowing you will fold if you don't have an ace.
