      Hey Lumpara,

      If villain is on tilt and getting all-in with any 2, it can never be a big mistake to get the money in with A-high.

      However, it might just be better to flat pre-flop and take a flop. That way you can make your decision with more information and get the money in with a higher equity edge.
