      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 10 Players

      MP2: $4.80 (48 bb)
      MP3: $7.40 (74 bb)
      CO: $12.04 (120.4 bb) 13/10/2.9/175
      BTN: $9.85 (98.5 bb)
      SB: $2.27 (22.7 bb)
      Hero (BB): $11.52 (115.2 bb)
      UTG: $6.14 (61.4 bb)
      UTG+1: $30.65 (306.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $22.99 (229.9 bb)
      MP1: $9.72 (97.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A A
      6 folds, CO raises to $0.40, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.20, CO calls $0.80

      Flop: ($2.45) K 9 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.75, CO raises to $4.30, Hero folds

      Results: $5.95 pot ($0.38 rake)
      Final Board: K 9 3
      CO mucked and won $5.57 ($2.62 net)
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$2.95 net)

      The CO was a relatively tight player, called my raise pre-flop so I had him on decent range. I obviously bet on the flop and he re-raised, at this point something inside of me said that he had a set. He open raised from cut off and could have 99,33. KK i didn't expect since he just called my 3-Bet pre-flop else he would have perhaps 4-Bet. He could also have had AK which is what's making me ask whether I should have folded there or not.

      When I reviewed later I gave him a range of KK,99,33,AK and I had 41% equity on the flop which means I should have called as I required only 23%.

      aces that spot is too strong to b/f in 3-bet pot.
      If he called with AK, he might easily raise that hand for value and you can´t be sure he is calling pf 33.

      So I would prefer b/c flop to then likely c/rai any turn except Kx.

      Folding aces in 3-bet pot isn´t always the best play, since players would make there enough moves that you should stack off even if you afraid you´re beat.

      best regards,

      Hmm thought so. I usually wouldn't fold but at that moment I just didn't feel like risking it. Anyway thanks for the post. Will keep this hand in mind for future plays.
