      Same guy as always opening everyhand min-raising and calling down most marginal holdings, i decide to slowplay my pocket aces against the fish as i'm pretty sure i can stack him if flop hits him in any way....two to the flush on the flop makes me a little concerned so i decided against raising

      I went for a comedy probe bet on the turn expecting him to fold an under-pair or something similar, his re-raise screamed out J9,Q9,K9 or similar so decided to ship it!!

      Question is; Should i have played Aces straightforwardly against this weak-passive opponent or should i 3bet/4bet pre-flop and try to get all their money in early? 3betting pre-flop tends to polarise my range on these kind of opponents so i try to get a bit more sneaky...sometimes to my detriment obviously....

      Hello delanonunes,

      Preflop: Wow! 3bet!!!!! And not other way to play it. Like wtf? Why do you set-mine with AA?

      As played
      Postflop: Raise the flop for protection!?!? And what's with the min-bet/min-raises on turn? Make a normal Bet... there are too many mistakes mate, you really should go back to the whole articles list.

      Best Regards.
