      Hi,


      It's not that hard really. He has around 100bb so he's possibly a reg, hit up the search function on your poker software and find out whether he's multi-tabling. If he is, snap-fold to the raise, otherwise shove and pray.

      Without the ninja-searching it sounds something like: while some aggro fish might check/raise that board sometimes with worse hands, most fish at microstakes like calling a lot more than raising, so when they raise even with AA you're not in that good a shape on average. Add to that the fact that you're just 2-outing 90% of the time if your opponent happens to be a reg, and the result is it's downright unprofitable to go broke in that spot against an unknown with a full stack at the microstakes tables these days. Which is why even tho it looks weak as hell, without reasonable doubt that he's a fish, you're usually better off dumping your AA.


      Hope it helps.
