      I think this is played well. Suited aces are rly good deepstacked, so no problems preflop. Flop and turn are standard. River is fold obv.

      Hi,


      Certainly nothing wrong with how you played it, NH.

      That said, MP2's bet doesn't look strong at all and you have deep stacks, which means you won't be able to get all the money in as it is even if you hit the nuts on later streets, since you're out of position with no guarantee that you'll be able to successfully throw in a check/raise on a scare card. Since you're also deep enough to actually call a decent size 3-bet with good implied odds should somebody wake up with a set, I think it'll give you overall more flexibility to just raise that weak c-bet and take it from there.

      It certainly is a higher variance line and likely more difficult to pull off correctly also, but it has a lot of merits and you should be thinking about it even if you don't actually use it.


      Hope it helps.
