      Hi all

      Opponent's stats is 14/3/2 over 150 hands, so very very tight.

      Spectacular results, no point hiding it.

      I guess my question is, from his stats, the board and the way he played it, would you fold my hand even if you are quite certain he has quad aces? At any limit?

      I was quite happy to pay him, as first of all he had only about 70% full stack and, secondly he might not have quad aces, thirdly if he has AAAA he deserves to be paid.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2:
      $2.08
      MP1:
      $1.59
      MP2:
      $1.28
      MP3:
      $2.39
      CO:
      $0.80
      BU(Hero):
      $1.91
      SB:
      $0.44
      BB:
      $2.44


      Preflop: Hero is BU with T, T.
      CO posts deadblind, 2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.14, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.14, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.33) A, T, A (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      I thought I would slow play it.

      Turn: ($0.33) 8 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.

      hmmm, 2c min bet, from his stats I can only put him on pocket aces.

      River: ($0.37) K (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.37, Hero raises to $1.75(All-In), MP2 calls $0.75.

      I was quite certain he has pocket aces at this stage, but was happy to donate him some money, after all I can't fold my hand anyway as it was also very strong.

      Final Pot: $3.24.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a full-house, tens full of aces(T T).
      MP2 shows four of a kind, aces(A A).

      MP2 wins with four of a kind, aces(A A).

      cooooler :baby:

      Yeah he's very tight, but it's also just 150 hands.
      3% is JJ+ & AK.

      I can see a fold on the river if you were very deep and he shoved.
      KK is the most likely hand imo the way he played it, AK 2nd most likely. On the river you don't beat much of his (pushing) range. But of course no way you fold this if you aren't several 100 bb's deep or something. And certainly not if he didn't build a pot before the river.

      Maybe just call river instead of shove, but that's up to the judge :)

      (I thought he was shoving the river, not you, that's why I said KK)

      I´d bet the flop, since you should want that Ax would c/r you and I don´t thin you get enough value if you check back, call turn and shove river
      I´d also raise turn the same reasons. river shove is fine, although since he now bets pot you can also call.
