      I presume you play with stats, so you would 3-bet him with all the hands from the adjusted 3-bet ranges to his PFR and I believe you would push all of them, therefore I push AA as well. Besides, why would good BSS player raise bottom pair from UTG?

      ok, when i said bottom pair, i meant all pairs below AA, bottom from AA or lower from AA would be more proper to say. Usually good BSS players wont play bottom pairs, but i saw also good BSS players playing all pairs from UTG on....

      Push is the best here!

      Play AK, TT... & AA the same way.

      Do not Push with TT and min3bet with Aces.

      I also heard there are solid players raising PPs from early to balance their lines. I see what you meant. Well, I think you should play all the hands same way and I think push is way to go when you would have to reraise more than half of your stack, call just isn't an option. Btw, a solid player will go broke against you with a certain range(prolly QQ+/AK+), regardless whether you push or 3bet imo.

      Hi Drach,

      Wouldn't make sense if you light3bet to $8.75 , leaving $10 behind but you are shoving with AKo or AQo here?

      Easy shove although I understand your thinking :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
