      Hi,


      3bet it preflop, you're kinda deep with UTG+1 and we have a premium hand, certainly putting more money in the pot in position works to our advantage.

      When tight BTN comes in jamming for 250bb effective he has a range of exactly { miss-clicks, AA }. It makes no sense for him to even jam KK, since he'll only get called by KK+, most likely only by AA from thinking players.

      When coming up i've looked up quite a bunch of these shoves and i've been shown AA almost all the time. There are some guys out there who ALWAYS open jam with AA, figuring somebody will find a call for some reason (they can't fold QQ+, they think it's a miss-click ;) ). Few exceptions being usually 100bb miss-click shoves with garbage. And even then, you'll still lose with KK like 16% of the time against a random hand (not always random since on some sites players just use the all-in button instead of the raise-pot button by mistake, so they'll sometimes still show up with strong stuff).

      Also, tight players are usually fairly focused on not screwing up, they don't miss-click that often.

      Bottom line is i'd save myself the variance and fold, especially if he goes on saying stuff like "miss-click :( " in the chat :D


      Hope it helps.
