      I really was uncertain.
      Even though I thought my opponent was a fish, and also that she had no idea of what raising from UTG means, I still didn't want to risk that much, since I had not enough data, and an Ax for her hand in my opinion was definitely an option.
      Of course I excluded the race to the Q on Turn/River.
      What should I have done?
      How was my train of thought?
      Also, what if on the flop there was a K instead of an A?
      What if there was both?

      (I always ask in terms of long term profit ofc.)

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      Well, it's not that big difference either it's a K or an A. Obviously Ace hits more often his Raise/Calling range but both cards are kinda WTF? If he really had the Ace, would he ship it like that? I mean why ain't he just letting you CBet and then ship it. :) For that given reason I sometimes even Call here, really depends on the opponent. Folding is just avoiding variance.

      Best regards.

      So, it's kind of a choice?
      Between avoiding variance or not?
      Sorry I'm still kind of confused (everything would be easier if she wasn't that bad >.> I met her again at the tables today and just MEH)

      Oh, well. I guess I'd be inclined to Call. :D Since if he had the Ace would he ever ship like that? :>

      Ok, clarified, thank you very much!
      (just for the lol, noticing how TOTALLY randomly and senseless these players play, I'd even say yes haha)

      True, but as well they could play with any PP like this which sees the Ace to be good scare-card against you. :D
