      Well since you found at least one guy incapable of folding even 98 (and thus Tx/JJ/KK+ as well) on that board, I'm surprised you're even thinking about it :) Especially on that board where at least part of the time, hands like AQ/KQ/two pairs/sets feel the need to raise it up right away because it's drawy/scary.

      It sounds result oriented and it is, but that's just how rush poker works. You know nothing about most villains, so you have to make plays that are profitable against an average player. That average player evolves based on what you see happening at your tables, and here it's clear there are bad enough players out there to warrant 3 barreling AA for value. Play and learn.

      Hope it helps.
