      3bet AA pré-flop blablabla....
      But in this spot i think its a waste because i wont give him the chance to fire his barrels. AA is the perfect hand because i wont get scared easy.
      what you think about the flat and call down?

      Hi Lunitis,

      I certainly think it's a reasonable option. It would be even better if he had a higher river cbet.

      The thing though, is that I probably abuse this particular player so hard with my 3bets that I end up having to 3bet AA anyway. I think you rightly pointed out that slowplay is a decent option when we are in BB, and he barrels a lot while folding 77% vs 3bets.
