      Villain had been 3betting me with raggy aces, any pair, suited broadways. He also was very aggressive and almost always barreled all three streets.

      What do you think of this bluff on the river? Which range do you give him here and which part of it could he could still fold? Is it too spewy with the small remaining stack sizes?

      Personally, I see him on AT+ and TT+ here, out of which all but AA would have to fold. In his place, I would put myself on 77, 55, AA only.

      I think BB expects you to 4-bet with AA and if you shove river you only reping 77/55 and I doubt he is b/f river with Ax hand
      Also I don´t expect him to barrel turn with TT-KK, so likely he either has there Ax or bluff. You beat bluff so you can call him down although better option would be probably just fold turn

      So you really think a solid player will never fold Ax here? Am I giving people too much credit?
