      I am not sure if you call hm on NL25, but on higher Limits you call and make a note

      I'm not sure if this was correct for NL25, so any advice on playing NL25 is welcome, but I did exactly that, called and made a note...

      I think it was kind of worth, since the guy completely misplayed QQ.

      On what PP do you put him then?
      22, 33, 44, 66, 77 and 88 seem a bit unlikely to me tbh.

      He could of course have Ax.
      Besides that he could have 99+ as well.

      For me this is an instant fold on NL25.

      @SPlayer18: NL25 still isn't comparable to the stakes you're playing on I'm afraid :) . But for what reasons would you call on the higher stakes with this, just out of curiousity?

      I've put him on 22-88 and TT-JJ, I found 99 unlikely since I had it already. ...about JJ+ I think normal line from his side would be limp/reraise preflop, so I found it quite unlikely. However, AA on board make it easy to bluff, so I also thought he might be bluffing, maybe with K high. :)
      On the other hand, with 2 aces on board, I didn't give him much credit to hold one.

      On this limit they can hold every hand.
      He limps from UTG+2 and calls your bet.

      I see them play AA/KK often enough that way.
      But also ATC can be played that way.

      I just wouldn't want to risk my stack with this hand on this board.

      Hello burek,

      the second ace on the does not make any rag ax in his hand that unrealistic... I guess donking such a large bet here has a meaning and you do not need to check it out with weak holding.

      Wait for a better spot to invest your money.
