Hi scyan2013!

Preflop holding AA in the BB, this is a dream scenario for me. I get a raise from the button and a 3-bet from the SB. I'm definitely going to 4-bet here and since any raise pot-commits me, I'm snap-shoving and high fiving the monitor.

When up against two opps, AA will lose about 1 in every 4 times, but on average, shoving is a huge +EV play.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
