      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:spade: , A:diamond:
      MP3 calls $0,04, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0,20, MP3 calls $0,16.

      Flop: ($0,42) 8:heart: , 5:diamond: , 3:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,26, MP3 raises to $0,52, Hero ???

      well, it's my pocket rocket vs low pocket pair which most likely developed into a set on flop, opponent is very tight and not aggressive usually and what else would he limp/call pre?
      what do i do here? folding my aces here seems a bit too weak but pushing them could be my death certificate here :D

      Hello foolboydesire,

      Usually they limp/call with PPs so that kind of board really hit their range. Therefore, I'd Bet/Fold it more often and as you even said yourself that the opponent ain't that aggressive. At the best we might consider like Calling the flop and then reevaluating it on turn.

      Best regards.
