well it is hard to say with no idea about stack sizes or what the blinds are and if you are playing BSS or SSS, but I would be going broke with my aces on that board. The fold is a really really weak play. Also re-raising the flop to $2.10 is not strong enough with (I am assuming) $1 in the pot pre-flop and his $.80 I would have re-raised more like $3-3.50.

Thats NL10 and we both had about 10$

I play my own strategie... no sss or bss ****.

Reraise to 3,50??? first i have Aces and be def. in front on the flop. I don´t want to get him out of the pot... just want to get value.

So why should i reraise to 3,50?

What are the blinds that you are raising to $.45?

Assuming they are $.05/.10 I think you played it fine and it would be very hard to fold here. I would guess he had two pair but at these stakes you should basically never fold an overpair unless the board in horrendous.

ok.well i hope this can provide some comfort for you.

Playing the poker millions (poker stars)

i get AA middle position with an early raiser of 5xbb.i raise to 15 bb he flat calls (trouble).board comes 10 6 3 rainbow.he bets out half pot so rather than let him catch i push at him just to have him flip over 33 and leave me stranded to runner runner or 2 aces.i didnt play it badly considering he was the chip leader at table and i was second in chips but you never put them on that in a $220 dollar tourney!

havent played millions since :(

So what do you put villain on? JJ? Nothing else that you really lose to really makes sense.

I think you are far ahead of villains range including a possible complete bluff. I would call at micro stakes.

You don't fold that. He obviously doesn't have JJ. If he was any god he wouldn't have gone all in with that if he had it. He would've tried to get value for his JJ and just raised. You got bluffed.

Everything is pretty much said, but I'll post my thoughts anyway.

- I would never open-raise it to 4,5bb pre-flop, but that's not the worst play you made in that hand.
- sizing on your flops raise is too small. Because that is rainbow flop, I would raise there to total of 2.8-3.2$.
- Can't find a fold on turn, 'cause there isn't much that your opponent is representing. Crying call and notes about action, no matter what.
