      After villain re-raises the flop I wanted to maintain the pot small so i decided to play check call because i knew that i will beat only trips AA with kicker <9. What would be a better play here?

      Hey buddy,

      He only min raised you on the flop, and he could be chasing a flush draw. So I would still bet the turn for value and for protection, and call any reraises. Then check/call river.

      +1, protection is important here. The turn bet could be a misplayed block from a flush chaser or a bluff induce from someone holding what they think is the nuts.

      It would be great to have player stats as any player who has a raise range over 10 is going to be betting AT+ PF. In that case you have a licence to bet-shove. If you run into a 66aaa FH, well, thats variance for you.

      With such a line we also pay off any better A. I don't like this.

      I like the way sony played the hand. With this line we get value from smaller pockets which don't believe us that we hold an A and we get value from weaker Aces. Also we don't pay off any better Ace x hand.

      - without stats/history its very hard to determine a correct line of play imo
      - he does have a small stack so he might be a fish
      - I would interpret minraise as strength and go for pot control too. I have lost many stacks with my obvious trips against his FH. Specially vs unknown.
      - We beat Ax<A9 EXCEPT A2,A3 and A6, that leaves only A4, A5, A7 and A8

      yup, him having 66 is more probable than having Ax imo
      but I think a FD is even more probable lol
