When facing unknown player I'm assuming he has tendencies same as the rest of the 5nl zoom pool. Tight maybe nitty and not capable of firing 3barrel bluff or valuebetting thinly on the river. His range is as strong as he represents in this spot. Correct fold I think.

I doubt villain takes this line with JJ/TT (or worse!), so I think the fold is fine.

Bracelet Winner

He is telling us he isnt scared of the A. He's either bluffing, or he is value betting, I'd tend to believe he is value betting a better hand unless we have reason to believe he is full of it.

Well played hand.

Unknown villains in the 5NL pool don't usually fire three barrel bluffs with value-size betting like this villain is making. Like the guys have already said, the Ace didn't slow him down one bit so either he was firing two barrels with AK and just got there or had you crushed all the way through.
