      HERO ????
      I know SSS is now AI
      but could he have hit a set? is he trying to semi-bluff with a draw or he has AT? I have unfortunately very low hands and no stats on him. I do have a note on him that he played some hands Axs and Kxs and suited connectors OOP.
      but this was very weird for me. limp, cold call and than bet flop???

      Hey rorrlsh,

      even with bigger stack that's a standard AI on the flop. The pot is almost the size of your stack and villain can still pay you off with Tx, 77-99 or some kind of draw because the board is semi draw heavy. Besides, most of the time I see such donkbets villains making with top pairs because they think they have to protect too much and they will hardly every give up the hand to a small stack.

      Regards,
