$20 NL HE Full Ring: top set in 3bet pot
I feel kind of silly asking how to play set of aces but I guess that's what HA is for right. Villain is pretty unknown but doesn't seem like a total nit.
Question is how do we best play it on flop ?
I mean we kinda have the deck crippled here right ?
What can he have that is giving us action ?
Will KK call on an A flop after calling a 3bet. I don't think so. And besides he would probably shove kings pre. I don't see QQ calling this flop. So what is our move, and later on turn, river.. ?
