Small sample size, but player seems pretty aggro, if you just give him sets and KK its a fold, but if you add in all his top pair hands like QJs+ and KQo, AQo+ it becomes a call. If you add in his bluffs its a call. I personally would probably call here. To me it looks pretty bluffy, why over bet so big with sets or KK when he thinks he is ahead, there are not too many draws here JT has an eosd but that is about it. Your line really doesn't have JT in it so what is he betting so big for?

I am just going buy how I would play a set here, if I put you on a strong range like an over pair I would just call your c bet and let you value bet with worse again, then maybe shove river if you shut down. I don't think I would give you a chance to fold by shoving flop with my stronger hands.

Actually I made a mistake thinking you were both $20 deep. I ran it again just giving him QQ 99 44 and KK, and your aces have enough equity to call if I am doing this correctly.

I got the results that vs 44 99 QQ and KK you need 36.5% equity to call and your aces have 41.33% equity.

If he limped pre which I'm assuming he did. Would he do that with aq kk qq? If not what would you put him on? 99 44 q9? I think with any of those hands he would be willing to see the flop but not want to raise pre. Then take into consideration that you raised pre then c-bet the flop. I can't see him shoving all-in unless he knows or believes he has you beat. I guess I would fold just because of the pre-flop limp and the post-flop all-in re-raise to your c-bet. Hard to say though tough spot.

Hi Imo,

With an SPR of 3 I'm comfortable stacking AA here. He can certainly have sets, but we can't rule out KK, big Q's, JT, or some semi-bluff gutters like KJs. I mean maybe we can make arguments to rule some of that stuff out, but I'm not sure which ones and I don't think it's enough to dissuade me from calling here.

@lil_qp, villain didn't limp in preflop, he raise/called.
