      I didn't use a HUD when I played this hand but hand marked villain down as a solid reg. It can be mentioned that open raiser MP2 is marked down as wild spewmonkey.

      Preflop I put villain on either AA or AK/Ax 4bet bluff seeing as my hand can look like a standard squeeze. I don't think he would 4bet QQ this deep.

      I have already ruled out QQ for the most part so I think a set is highly unlikely. His cbet is either AA or a bluff. On the turn I see absolutely no point in betting as no worse will call and if he has a bluff I think he will have pretty much given up by now. River is nice and he checks. I don't think he will even put me on AK, I do think he has a hud running showing TAGish stats on me and he would probably never put me on AK river. Most bluffs are going to have given up by now so I think he "always" have AA and sometimes AK if he does anything but folding, the question becomes what to bet. Personally I think getting more than 1/3 pot is difficult. It also makes it very hard for him to fold even if he puts me on a very narrow range.

      I know that I would never have AK in this spot, and he pointed out in the chat box too that he didn't think so either. I tried to play dumb as well in the chatbox saying "thought you had worse" just to get some idea, I still don't know if he would call a shove with AA or even AK. I think I would vomit, tank for 60 seconds, break something and then fold to a shove but still be unable to fold to a 1/3 bet...
