      It doesn't matter how tight you opponent is, you have TPGK and that should be enough to push here.

      Push is nice and standard.

      I wonder what he has here, though. A set of 55 is possible, but he might just have some mid-strong PP since he is so aggressive postflop.

      Could anyone tell me how much NL100 differs from NL50 and in what way?

      I can't see any difference between those two limits. Maybe players on nl100 steal more often.

      Yeah. Or a set of Kings :(

      I suppose I can console myself that, even if he resteals preflop, I'm not folding AQ.

      Hey Tim64,

      his play smells badly of KK+, but I'm not giving up AQ when I hit my A on the flop in steal/resteal hands. Go broke and make a note of what he made this play with for future reference.

      Btw, knowing fold SB to steal and cold call SB to steal might give some valuable information.

      @ BlitzkriegBaron: The difference between any higher and lower limit is mostly seen in higher overall aggression on higher limit and players are a little tighter and in general a little better than on lower limit, that's mostly true for difference between nl50 and nl100. However, differences are also between different sites, but mostly that's it.

      Regards,
