      This line seems really weird to me, thoughts on action? It really feels like he's trying to buy the pot with a large overbet noone really wants to call.

      Hi,


      Not quite sure what to make of it myself, but i doubt you're willing to stake a buy-in on the fact that ATo is in good shape in that spot. I have seen people overlimp QQ+ sometimes and wake up after a few reraises it's not unheard of, but barely any of them made a 10x reraise with these.

      If he had been totally erratic and i got the feeling he might be trying to bully everyone in that spot i'd probably be willing to call the shove with something like AJs+/77+, but ATo feels really really borderline without a better read it's likely not worth it.


      Hope it helps.

      I'd usually be pretty wary of limp-shovers at this limit. If they try to pull it off again then you can treat it with less respect but in my experience they've usually been dealt a monster under the gun and been terrified of not seeing any action.

      It's not something I do myself, but some friends who play a lot of live poker swear by the limp-raise on aggressive tables when you're dealt a monster out of position. It gives you a fishy table image and puts people off their game. How else can you get someone to even consider calling a 100BB raise with A10?
