      i figured he would have re-raised the flop with a higher ace(or probably even AQ), when he bet it i thought he either:
      a. was a donkey betting an ace rag [x]correct answer
      b. hit 2 pair
      c. slowplaying aces
      d. figured i had a mid-high pocket and bet the flop to take down the pot(in other words, complete bluff)

      I would also pushed the flop.
      However I am not sure about PF. As I remember AQ is not playable from early position besides that you should raise to 4x big blind.

      i dont tend to use the bronze SHC, as i find your profitability differs ALOT based on the table you are at. i usually quickly scan the average VP$IP and PFR range of the table, and base my raises etc on that.

      i've been at tables where i can comfortably shove AJ against a late raiser from a blind.

      Hi Semesa,

      board has no draws nothing so you could consider a flop call in position and push the turn if he checks, but a raise on the flop is also fine. AQo shouldn't be a standard raise from utg but its no big fault.

      Best Regards
