      (On the river, of course, he's valuebetting but flop and turn play is obv somewhat spewy).

      My main question, since postflop plays itself I think - given our reads above - is whether you would 3b these Aces pre? We're streets ahead of his wide opening range, but he's not folding pre and we're likely to be at least 3way with somewhat small chance of flopping huge. But, otoh, when we just flat we're not really punishing his wide opens...

      Thanks

      No, I'm not 3betting AAA 300bb deep oop.. Cant get low SPR situation / HU.

      Otf top set usually always raising because we can cooler TT, AT but here obviously bad spot. Deep, no way to improve but boating up blocking quads out and almost every other card in the deck completes something. I think you played it fine postflop.

      Would you raise top set (if there were another Ace out there) even knowing about his bluffing tendencies?

      Also, when you say "but here obviously bad spot..." I assume you mean because we block his continuing range?

      With obviously bad spot I mean that you're very deep, OOP, and board has two possible wraps out there + FD. If you dont boat up on turn it's gonna be guessing game where you're at.

      100bb deep I would normally just raise top set for value and try to either get it in now, or play 2 streets game mostly. This is indeed a little special spot when you've AAA and therefore he cannot have two pairs with A, AQKJ etc type of hands that will just go with it.
