      This has been annoying me. At first I thought: 33, 77, AK, KK - ship the money since I have 40% equity at the very worst. But is a reasonable player generally doing this with AK 130bb deep on a dry flop? Since I am only calling with AK, KK, AA.

      Looks like this TAG is up-leveling you here.
      There nothing else then 33,77,KK,AK he represent here since the board is dry like the desert.
      He knows he you know he wouldn't c/rai a set here so with using reverses thinking he does it.

      It's really hard spot, if he is good he has us crashed. Only other option we be anther level up meaning he is bluffing knowing that you wouldn't call his shove because you know he wouldn't shove a set. But that's too much for NL25... :)

      Hi,

      sad is, that SB gives MP1 some odds for 33 and 77.
      I think we can exclude KK.
      Maybe he goes crazy with AK who knows.
      I couldn't fold it, too and would make my note that he shoves set on dryest flop ever.
      What did he actually have? My guess is 77.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      I wouldn´t fold there, some players would call pf AK and also shove that flop, some are bluffing with A high, pp.
      If he has set then it is just a cooler
