  2. well you sure as hell don't fold, and you sure as hell don't call

    that leaves...
  3. This is a situation where I would wager all of my remaining chips.
  4. Same as 2 responses above - shove and hold pls.
  5. I would definitely convince myself his bet size was AK and jam.

    I agree this has to be a large part of the villians range here (hence my comment "hold pls"). I also see alot of prs that did not want to see the flop - with luck he flips over 88 - JJ (often TT or JJ) but even a small pr would not surprise - he is likely using his stack here to intimidate. If he has an overpr unlucky, gg.

    Sometimes in the villians position here if I think the other player will not be able to fold (that is I have put him on AQ+, JJ+) I will donk shove a deep stack with AA here just to mix things up - it is surprising if u pick ur player well how often this gets paid off particularly at this level - obviously not related to this situ but just a comment

  7. shove and hope it holds
  8. shove, he flips AA, GG
  9. With those stack sizes and no reads, with antes in play, I'd have to agree with the other posters and say shove.
  10. shove. he has AA. but don't worry, you'll spike a Q on river.
  11. either way your wrong here imo just shove and hope and pray
  12. This is shove and high-five the monitor when you hit that beautiful queen on the river to outdraw the overpair.
