      Villain 40/15, AF 1.8, FCbet 67% I don't know the rest because he left the table soon after

      Classical ripoff of a msser. Call flop/minraise turn. I should fold on turn, right? Because it's a small card and there are few hands he could raise here, but if it was a big card the allin would be justified?

      It looks like the villain was playing 99, and got the set on turn.

      That's the only point I see why villain would raise on this spot.

      I now it's spewy, but I like to shove AA pre-flop, if it's not possible, I shove on the flop.

      I can't get away with hands like AA, playing MSS I always go broke.

      Suited connectors that hit the flop well (like, X:diamond: Y:diamond: or 78) are also plausible.

      While it seems that he has you beat on the turn I'd also find it hard to fold on that spot... let's see what the judges have to say.

      Hey BadeaCelRau,

      It most certainly looks like he got a big hit on the turn, standard fishy line, but I just don't find folding AA there profitable because all the times when the fish will show up with some random hand like A9, 98s or 54s will make up for the times he actually hit with his 87 or 99. So, nice hand!

      Best regards,

      Nah, he didn't hit anything on the turn. He had 55 and hit set on the flop but didn't raise it. If he raised on the flop I would've folded it :/
