      I didn't 4-bet preflop because Villain was rather fishy (though his stats seem reasonable) and I had been bullying the table over the last 10 hands. So I thougt that he might stack off with a worse ace. The flop gives me that, so I call one bet, intending to raise on the turn, but instead, he makes a huge overbet. I know that this is exactly what I wanted, so you might think that this is an easy call, but is it?

      You got caught by your own trap, hehe :D
      The problem is here that your trap above all else, kept you from getting getting any read. There's no telling what he can hold : set, double pair AT (or worse) or a worse ace ...

      Whenever I try a play like that and things suddenly completely don't go how I'd expected them to go, I'd be inclined to give it up ... however, here, I think you can't. Why would he bet a set like this on such a board ? If he got AT or A5 (bah), well, too bad ... against relatively unknowns, you can't give up TPTK in a reraised pot to an overbet without information and a draw-free board. If you had obtained information on the flop or preflop, you might have been able to avoid an all-in with that information ...

      he could be holding a low suited A with spades so he's making a semi-bluff with some outs...

      Whoops, just noticed that I posted my hands in the wrong section.

      I call. The only 2 hands that scare me are AA and TT. But why should he push these hands? You dont want to have fold equity on such a board. Hence, I'd put him more often on AK/AQ, or he's doing a stupid move with a hand like JJ-KK

      Indeed, I thought so too, so I called. He showed T5 though :(

      Well, he was hard to read, you gotta give him that ...
      T5 ... no wonder you usually got contempt for your opponents :D
