      considering the stats of the oponent i was completely sure i am holding the nuts so i called his shove

      i checked preflop because all of the limpers are playing 30-40vpip and more and i dont feeling going on board with 33 OOP vs such loose players will be profitable

      please share ur thoughts about this hand because i am not sure what was the best way to play it

      I'm broke here too because I think such a station with 3.6 AF will go broke here with AQ, A8, A9 or A3 too. Also he will probably go broke with a single Ax.

      Sometimes this station has TJ or 88 in an unraised pot. Or maybe slowrolled his AA. But as he is also able to do that with a 2 pair or sometimes Ax I'm broke here too.
