      ----------------------------------------

      Only a few hands with this player, he seemed really tight. When he called from the sb I thought his most likely hand to be a pp.
      Then he takes this standard tight-player set-hunter line: donk flop and when raised, try to get it all-in. Perfect flop for this.
      I think with a K he would be more likely to check-raise the flop or just call my flop-raise.
      After his line I thought he had AK at least, but now that I think of it that's less likely because I have AA.

      But I want to know am I thinking too much here and should this just be an easy shove? Or is it plausable to sometimes fold this?

      - When a tight player calls from SB like this, its usually a pp. But on this limit it could be other hands too. Specially if unknown.
      - He then leads vs 2 players indicating strength.
      - The dry flop suggests he has a set or a K. If he doesnt call KQ-(as you said, he rarely has AK here) pf from SB then you might be in trouble.
      - You can go for pot control(call down dry board) if you feel he has a set but you will lose money if he has a worse hand than yours.
      - These spots are difficult to play for any player, but with experience you will learn how =)

      +1
      one option is call down
      Other option is to raise, but then fold to 3-bet, since that would mean set close to 100%

      Ty guys,

      now that I think of it again, I only beat a bluff or an occasional AK here. Good to hear I can take it slow with confidence with certain opponents and boards.
