re: Poker & $200 NLHE Full Ring: Folding TPTK against Reg
I had a hand like this last night live. I have AQo first to act, flop is something like 6-9-A. I'm first to act and bet pot (smallish $15 pot). Other guy insta raises to $45. I didn't have much info on him but he was an ok reg. I put him on AK or a set. I was afraid if I flat called then like Trabendo says it's tough decisions on turn and river. Def possible he had AQ or AJ but another live session I had a guy maniac into my AK with his AQ, I called him all in on a no flush/no s8 board, he looked surprised he lost so if I had more info on this other guy I might have called him down but in the situation i did not and expected to see set, 2p, AA or AK.
I also had AA in a spot where someone 5xed 3bet me on a low non drawing board. Insta fold for me.
I think you made the correct play given what you knew. Why else is villian more than 3xing your bet? a set, 2p, overpair? But as others said don't show your J here. Now villian knows he can get you off decent flopped pairs with some aggression.
