      he is only ever re-raising two 6's or a 5 on flop.

      Very unlucky here w4terman,

      Preflop play was perfect, you're raise was large enough.

      On the flop, you will probably go broke all the time as its hard to lay AA down, but once he re-raised you have to credit him with at least a 5, if not 2 6s.

      Just an unlucky spot there.


      Regards,
      Gary

      depends how good your think your opponent is. Only bad players will go NOO MY JJ IS NO GOOD DONK.

      Mind you today i have pocket kings raised it up 3BB guy to my left calls. Flop comes down 2h Kh 8d. I make a pot sized bet and get called. Turn comes 9h I check opponent bets half pot which to call would commit me in the SNG. I fold figuring the only thing he could call my pot sized flop bet with was a heart draw, he would check the turn like me with AK i think rather than going for value. He flashes 2 nines. making set over set. So i guess you could say im the kind of player that makes those laydowns and sometimes it costs me.

      I'm not trying to troll you kodark, but if you had a really strong read that was wrong I can let it go but folding top set to a call on a flop then a half pot bet on the turn because a potential flush got there is horrible, no offence. He won't need a flush there to bet and he might bet AK there to in his eyes protect his hand or with the A or K of hearts. Also even of he did hit the flush you have outs to hit a boat so folding not really an option unless you have like some stupidly good read

      Generally when you're raised on the flop, it's rarely by TPTK. Even if you may occasionally be laying down the best hand, abiding by the principle that once raised OTF >> fold 1 pair hands*, it will save you more chips than you'd earn.

      It's hard to lay down AA, but at the end of the day, it's just one pair.


      *Obviously unless you have strong reads on the villain that would suggest otherwise

      look that from different perspective... if avery time, that you have AA in hand - pot would be so big - you will be a rich man ;)

      I don't like the play but well next time you will just hit A on the river and ruin his day.

      Tough to lay down pocket aces. I find myself in your position all the time lmao. Then if I do lay down the aces it bugs me like virtually all day.

      Good play by you, bad play by opponent.
      The SPR is less than 2, you are comitted to any flop with aces.
