[NL2-NL10] 2NL FR - AA facing flop shove

      This is pretty standard of course, given villain's stack.

      However, I've noticed a lot of players recently making these shoves, and another guy I discuss poker with has noticed this happening more in recent months, although he plays 10NL and 25NL.

      If villain had a full stack, would you call this shove on a drawy board? Obviously, 250BB deep would be crazy to call, but how about say 75-125BB?

      I only ask this because I want to be ready for when this happens against full-stacked opponent... :D

      Hello philhellmutt,

      Usually such shoves doesn't make much sense since they are often times some TP type of hand or something similar or as well a lot of players do like to ship this way with some draw which tries to get maximum fold equity.

      While against full stack it would be a lot harder to Call there while we don't know the opponent, might even prefer to fold.

      Best regards.

      Yes, that's how I feel about it too - with full stacks, I'd only call a maniac in this spot. Thanks again...
