      Looks very strong, but the villain's line could have been a alot of weaker aces as well. It wasnt that badly played. In fact there isnt alot else you could do without a read that said BB isnt really positionally aware.

      You could even have played bet-raise-shove on the flop.

      Hey!

      I don't like going broke here without a read on villain. He could have any 2P, the made str8 and sets.
      Is he playing something like AJ or AT like this? I really don't give credit for microlimits players for playing an aggressive game. Most players are super passive and will just call down with Ax. Hell, even in small stakes, most players play like that.


      I think we can safely c/f turn, especially against an overbet. We're beat way too often. If turn went x/x, we could fire a river vbet =)

      Cheers!
