      Hey Zumpar,

      I wouldn't expect a call here in the long run to show a lot of profit, if any. SB c/r into 2 players is usually strong. Actually the fact he check-raise huge rather than c/r small actually makes his range a little less strong imo, includes more hands like flush-draws, straight-draws, monster-draws that he doesn't want to play brick-turn cards on.

      I think the hand is ok; but I wouldn't be too excited about it, and I'm not convinced there is a huge difference between calling and folding here.

      As a general rule, when you get check-raised in a multi-way pot with one pair, you are crushed. The exception here is that there is more dead-money in the pot (CO flop call) making a light jam more profitable for SB, and also that he check-raises big. In most other scenarios where you get c/r with AA like this it should be a pretty easy fold.

      Please not that he'll have a lot less draws in his range since we block A :heart: .

      Yup, definitely true. Perhaps this is less of a factor on a board with so many combo draws?He might be inclined to ship a 6h7h with the gutshot but less likely to ship a naked 7h flush draw multiway etc.

      Except T :heart: J :heart: what else do you think is a strong draw that calls a huge squeeze preflop? Even T :heart: J :heart: is a bit extreme, maybe since CO called, SB decided to call.

      I think his range will be 99,55,QQ,J :heart: T :heart: . Maybe sometimes AQ but less likely since we hold A :heart: .

      Highly doubt 6h7h does that there. Highly doubt 6h7h even reaches the flop unless villain really loves his suited connectors.

      Depends on the player in the SB for sure. It's not inconceivable he can make this play with SC or a KhJh regardless of whether it's a decent play or not.

      Also, I agree that there is a strong case for folding here. I don't even expect to have an equity edge allin here, except a decent amount of dead money means it is not required. If I was playing this hand, I'd probably fold.
