So... I'm guessing this is waaaay to thin.


Seems strange that this villain would be checking a set of ACES on this board but... who knows.

OTT: He raises when I lead. Maybe this was a bad lead?
OTR: He bets pretty big here. Original plan was to just call, but I don't see him having AA but then again I guess AA is more likely than AK, AQ type hands?

I decided to bump it, maybe he gets stubborn with KK, QQ Ax? I don't see him having Ax of hearts...

Then he bumps it BACK! AAAAAHHHHHH! And the writes 77 in the chat box...which I kind of believe! I think AA, 87, 77...

OTR... In this spot should we just check call? or lead out and fold to a raise?

Preflop both calling and 3-betting are gonna be fine options, calling more so because of the great price you are getting.

Flop and turn play are good too but I am not sure if we can get much more value OTR by raising. His betting range seems polarized between strong flushes or boats and a bluff and he may not call worse against a raise anyway.

As played I think we can safely assume he will have us beat here by shoving against your strong river line.
