      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from

      saw flop

      BB ($25)
      UTG ($31.55)
      MP ($24.14)
      CO ($30.27)
      Hero (Button) ($45.05)
      SB ($31.22)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with K, A
      2 folds, CO calls $0.25, Hero bets $1.25, 1 fold, BB raises to $4, CO calls $3.75, Hero raises to $45.05 (All-In), BB calls $21 (All-In), 1 fold

      Flop: ($54.10) A, 4, 6 (2 players, 2 all-in)

      Turn: ($54.10) 10 (2 players, 2 all-in)

      River: ($54.10) 9 (2 players, 2 all-in)

      Total pot: $54.10 | Rake: $2.70

      CO it's a really fishy looking guy because he is ccing the 3bet OOP
      BB is a 19/15/2.0 with 4.3 3 bet value over 122 hands

      Normally I wouldn't question my move but against that bet size? It looks very strong imo.

      Also I shoved because I thought that BB might often fold and the fish might call with trashy hands, hands that I have dominated or I'm flipping against.

      BB's sizing is super-standard.

      Nice hand, well played, don't get what the question is.

      Just trying to get some other views.
      The problem is that I know it's good in theory but have been called very often by KK or AA in that spot, I guess it's only the bad side of variance :f_confused:

      It looks damn strong when you isolate a limping fish and a reg immediately 3 bets you not knowing how the fish is going to react :f_confused: .

      Anyway folding it's not an option and 5betting to any amount commits us so yeah lame post by me... :f_eek:

      I'd say a reg would spot that you isolate fish wide (or I assume you do) and go for a sneaky resteal, it's something I do vs iso-raises. I'd say standard shove but you could also flat and play postflop.

      Y, just variance if it was AA/KK. Nh.

      shove there is standard because of the dead money int he pot
      You can´t really fold pf and I you´re missing 2/3 pot and have to fold to c-bet. only reason to call pf is to keep in his worse squeezing hands that would fold to shove but might stack off postflop if they hit top pair. But shove there is ad if he happens to have AA/KK then just a cooler
