      Wondering what you thought about this play. I didn't call because I'm trying to get out of the habit of calling all ins, unless I know i'm really ahead (was a bit worried about kicker/set).

      As it happens he showed, and had nothing, but that's not really the point :)

      Thanks dude :)

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      I don't think that he is shoving that often there with sets, which make FH, he rather would make a min-raise or something similar, to keep you in the pot. This shove is often times from somewhat aggressive players rather with a FD or something similar, therefore I might even Call it here, he could easily even have a lot worse Aces, with he is shoving. The 2 just made him less likely to have a set, only few combos of 7s.

      Best regards.
