      I done my normal pre-flop raise according to the hand chart and got called by one of the limpers. This made me think he had a weakish hand since he limped.

      I hit the top pair top kicked on flop and put out my contibet which got re-raised all-in. There was the flush draw but I didn't think he would chase a flush draw due to the chances of that card appearing. So I put him on an Ax with a kicked lower than mine. So I called his all in he shows two pair.

      Hello PokerPaul18,

      Depends a lot on the opponent and what kind of hand to think he is capable of pushing. If you think that he is pushing here as well with even weaker Aces then it should be doable but pretty close.

      For example the equity against some range I'd put him on:
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 44,351% 36,433% 15,837% 47,730% 77, ATs+, A7s, JsTs, ATo+, A7o
      Player 2: 55,649% 47,730% 15,837% 36,433% AsKc

      Although sometimes we could even put the range a lot smaller if he is more passive guy and it would be the opposite:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 55,248% 54,866% 0,764% 44,370% 77, AQs-AJs, A7s, AQo-AJo, A7o
      Player 2: 44,752% 44,370% 0,764% 54,866% AsKc

      Overall, since we haven't invested that much and don't have good reads on him or either stats I sometimes even prefer much more folding than Calling.

      Best regards.
