      Why would you wanna fold? You're ahead when the money goes in... as in like... WAAAAAY ahead. Ofc you can never fold here, this is just a beat.

      A lot of people suggest not going broke with anything less than 2Pr

      I can't fold this hand so I agree with you. I just posted to see if the evaluator thinks it is necessary to consider a laydown fearing a set or something.

      One of those days when you become filled with self-doubt!

      Hi,


      People advising not to go broke with less than two pairs probably mean it as a general guideline for unraised or single raised pots against reasonable players, since it's way easier to get outdrawn in those situations by people who know what they're doing.

      Against an unknown in a 3bet pot at nl10 tho, we're obviously not folding AA there ever, he could do that with Kx and lots of weird gutshots / pocket pairs if he just doesn't feel like folding, sets are so rare you have to ignore the possibility when there is already so much money in the pot.


      Hope it helps.
