      Standard spot to bet fold? Im starting to learn i should, but making it happen is difficult.

      thoughts: people steal wide BvB, so he could be raising flop as i have alot of trash in my range?

      Hi.

      I don't know how this guy plays, but by default without information, I think you cannot fold AA here.

      I think 3betting Flop or bet/call F check/raise T are both fine here.

      Nice hand.

      so V unknown just ship it? what about tagy players?

      Do we ship because of all the FD/SD hands he could have? I cant really see anyone x/r Qx.....

      Thanks :D

      His raise size is kind of large, so I would be more inclined to jam on the Flop. If his raise size was smaller, I would flat the raise and checkraise the Turn.

      I think the main profit from our play comes from getting it in vs draws, and also when he folds his not so strong hands like gutshots or backdoor flush draws. Occasionally he may raise AQ/KQ for value, which may be possible given this is BvB.

      I'm still not folding vs TAGgy players, I would only consider folding vs an ultra passive nit. You should realize that AA is super strong here in relative terms, given how wide the ranges are. Folding AA vs an unknown would be way too weak and exploitable, and he could raise worse made hands for value, a ton of draws, and some air.

      I think when someone raises this big on draw heavy board which has big cards it's usually 2p+set-combos, rarely FD's. So 3-betting flop might be overplaying vs unk, as some draws might get off and all the stronger hands continue.
