      Hey I decided to slow play aces in the button, players know that I can raise 30-40% of hands and wanted to keep their bluff and aggression sometimes..
      Here just a question, he does not seem so aggressive too. Would you call his river bet if the 4th diamond :diamond: does not come on the river? He can easily play like this A :diamond: Q, or maybe K :diamond: K. so you d call the river bet in case of only 3 diamond? thanks

      Obviously slow playing big hands such as these can give you terrible flop cards, but you really have to force the issue on the turn, he is betting out with so many A :diamond: or K :diamond: hands, id tend towards a jam, and he would get it in with most TP with decent :diamond: holdings, to which you are ahead of all.

      River bet is obv value bet so insta fold, but i dont like that you let him see a river with your aces

      I'd prefer to 4-bet this pre. And that flop.. I'd raise it already and aim for jam on turn. Your hand needs lots of protection there.

      Hello cekpirus88,

      4bet it preflop and get it in. :P Though otherwise as you slowplay it ship da turn for value + protection.

      Best Regards.
