      Preflop: Hero is CO with A A
      Hero raises to $0.12, BTN folds, SB raises to $0.36, BB folds, Hero raises to $0.80, SB calls $0.44

      Flop: ($1.64) 2 7 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.23, Hero calls $1.23

      Turn: ($4.10) T (2 players)
      SB bets $1.99, Hero calls $1.99

      River: ($8.08) T (2 players)

      Results: $8.08 pot ($0.53 rake)
      Final Board: 2 7 8 T T
      Hero mucked A A and won $7.55 ($3.53 net)

      Is a call on the flop good or is it not too recommended there?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Nah, seems to be totally fine and I don't even mind your play. Most likely I would have played the same way. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.

      I only have one question to begin:

      What kind of range do you expect villain to call 4bets with?

      Lets assume an unknown does this with QQ+AKo. He's probably not really donking with AK on that board in a 4bet pot, unless he's a maniac.


      So I would imagine its QQ+. With that in mind I dont really mind either raising the flop and getting it in or just slow playing to commit him since the board is pretty dry and doesnt really connect with too much in most normal ranges.

      IMO I would raise the flop and get it in to avoid potential scare cards killing our action - lets say an A/K

      Mostly PPs if he is rather tighter.

      Yes, the issue which muel294 pointed out bothers me as well.

      His play, though doesn't make sense in the first place. I would imagine him tiltshoving any turn anyway since he is sort of committed and I would have to be a pretty big maniac to call with AK there too. So actually, if an A or K comes, he might have the illusion that he has FE. Hard to say as his play is in any way weak. I guess either play is indeed correct.

      On those stakes everything may happen, without people posting me any kind of information I am picking just the obvious and standard play. :) Another option against more reasonable players would be to flat and play postflop.

      Ok, I guess there really is not a big difference there! Thanks!
