re: Poker & $10 NLHE 6-max: Folding AA on the flop after being raised

Last thing tho why donk flop if ur worried??? That was ur last chance.. when u decided to lead out u committed
It wasn't a donk, it was a continuation bet. And I purposely bet a small amount (less than 60% pot) so that I wouldn't be committed.
And like I said: having the Ad in my hands just made it so much worse for me. I'm blocking out most flush draws in their range and limiting the amount of AQ combos down to just 6.
And no one knows that I folded AA, so they can't exactly exploit me for that. They know I'm calling it off with a set or a flush draw, so it's not like my bet/fold range is huge.

The huge stack is the thing that made it worse! If we were playing with 60bb effective stacks, I would've happily stacked off. But when the effective stack sizes are 117bbs, I need to protect myself against set-miners. And when your preflop raise gets multiple callers, you can be fairly sure that at least 1 of them is set-mining.
And like I said, there are only 6 combos of AQ remaining, and there are also 6 combos of QQ, so it's equally likely that they have top set as it is that they have TPTK (and remember that there are other sets out there too, not just top set).
