Hi vj,

Against an opponent who is playing as laggy as this guy has been at our table I would prefer to just 3b rip all in over his open rather than flat call when I have a 15 bb stack and AQ.

As played the turn is probably a call for this price, I don't favor check-shoving because I can't see the villain ever folding a better hand and not calling with too many worse hands save for the few draws he holds. When we're good, the river will likely go check/check a lot, and if he bets big on the river we can just fold.


Tweet this hand on Twitter using the Tweet button above for a chance to win a seat in the next $5,000 guaranteed Big Bang tournament. You MUST include #LearnPoker and @PokerStarsPSO in your tweet. Winners will be notified by email every Monday. Good luck!

Edit: I read the wrong guy, MP+1 is the laggy one but ofc he's not our raiser, it's MP. Grabbing another cup of lol

Given we have no real read on the opener (12 hands, he's played 1) I still prefer the same course of action as I do vs. the lag due to our stack size.
