      steal from SB 33 (12)
      fold to cbet 80
      hands 166

      I slowplay aces preflop because his stealing range is wide, so he will fold many of his hands. And I have position on him

      Now on flop he raises big, but I think I cannot flop yet my strong overpair, having in mind that I slowplayed them preflop and he does not put me on AA.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Preflop: If he is so loose then why don't you just 3bet for value? :) I would likely do it against any opponent on those limits. No need to slowplay in just a 2bet pot.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much to do and of course exactly those kind of situations happen. What if he would have bet it on turn and it wasn't the A?

      Best regards.

      even if he is loose he still folds so many hands when I 3bet so I hate it :) but probably next time I will 3bet anyway and hope he has some pair or something which he will call.

      I think I would call his bet then, because I slowplayed aces and he never could think that I have them. I beat overpairs, draws, top pairs. Unless he bets like pot size, then without reads I cannot be sure I am ahead.

      Then let it be. :) And be happy if you win the money rather than get sucked out like in this case very easily could be the case.

      And this exactly is why you should 3bet. :) While you could just so easily here be against sets/2pairs and even stronger hands.
