      River: ($104.12) A (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      $104.12 pot ($3.00 rake)
      Final Board: A 4 4 J A
      SB showed 7 A and won $101.12 ($49.06 net)
      Hero mucked 2 4 and won $0.00 (-$52.06 net)


      I thought flop A made his range contain many Ax hand so I c/r/s even unraised pot.

      Against this villain, Is this profitable? and if he was reg?

      1. Reg would not limp in there almost ever so we cannot make this play against a reg.

      2. Against a fish player, he will limp in many better 4x so I would not 4bet flop against him. I think your hand is quite week for that. Keep in mind they like limping in AA as well. In a limped pot, in general, don't stack off super light, especially against so much aggression from a passive player (fishy, limps pre->passive, huge VPIP-PFR gap, most likely very passive).

      The only situation in which I would definitely stack off 42 here is if I knew he overplays many weak hands with aggression. Otherwise, call and play your position after he 3bets.
