      Hi, YerzY.

      A bit of a weird hand. Did you have any reads on the opponent? Was he usually too aggressive, to passive?

      I don't think he's bluffing there, he should have at least a flush draw... but even with a draw his play would be awful as he can't expect an ace to fold (then again, it's NL2 and most people don't think that far but some things are even a bit intuitive).

      However, with a hand as strong as ours I don't think there is anything to do but call. We lose to KK and AK, both of which there are not many cards out there (only one A and three K left in the deck).

      The K on the board is actually good in that sense since we were losing to AK anyway. A J or T would be worse as it would make us lose to AJ or AT.

      33 is very unlikely to have called flop too.

      So yeah... I'd go on and make the call, he can have all sorts of Ax, especially AT and AJ could play like that since preflop.
