      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:


      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, A.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.62, SB folds, BB raises to $2.40, Hero raises to $6.00, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.5.

      his stats in  310 hands vpip25 pfr20 af2 wtsd31 3BET9,3 fold to 3BET 93  fold to 4 BET 60  CB100 in 3 bet pot   turn CB100 in 3 bet pot                    

      he reraised me 4 times before,and he folded twice to my 4 BET.
      so his reraise is more like bluff,so can I slow play by calling 3 bet?

      Hi Daisuke,

      Over what sample are those cbet stats in 3bet pots?

      Normally I like to just 4-bet and get it in with AA here so we can cooler all of his AK/JJ+ hands that may otherwise not pay us off entirely (and we can slowplay AK, JJ-KK for example).

      However, if our postflop reads are over a larger sample (not just 1-2 cases) then we can call with AA here as well and let him try to bluff us (or valuebet thin).
