      I know i know.. fold pre wait for aces. But do you think we can get away from aces up on such flop? No stats/reads on villain.

      Hello Alficor1,

      It's actually kinda problematic all-in and what I don't really like. If you take into consideration what ranges he could be on and lets give him this range:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 25,354% 12,759% 25,189% 62,052% As2s
      Player 2: 74,646% 62,052% 25,189% 12,759% TT, 22, ATs, A2s, KcJc, QcJc, ATo, A2o

      That's most often the worst case likely.
      And for example if we add some Ax type of hand into his range:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 38,542% 29,815% 17,454% 52,731% As2s
      Player 2: 61,458% 52,731% 17,454% 29,815% TT, 22, AQs, ATs, A2s, KcJc, QcJc, AQo, ATo, A2o

      We getting this equity, therefore, I think it's rather a Bet/Fold line, if we put those ranges together and get an average, then it's kinda bad, and should put ourself in long run losing money. Therefore I'd rather prefer to have known opponent in this case to go all-in.

      Best regards.
