Pocket AA's vs. Pair on the board
Got another situation on AA's that I'd like some advice on - I got it wrong (but got lucky), so let me know what you think.
playing 2/4 no limit in a casino, and I get AhAd on the button. No raise into me, so I raise to 20. Small blind and under-the-gun call, everyone else folds.
Two callers, I'm in position - I think my preflop play was as good as it gets...
Flop comes QhQc7h. Small Blind bets 20, under-the-gun calls. I raise to 60. Small Blind goes all in for around 140, under-the-gun folds.
Now the small blind is fairly tight pre-flop, but I'd caught him trying to bluff me off on a paired board twice earlier in the day (once on an A high, once on a flush draw). On the other hand, I'd never seen him push all in. Should I call ( I had him covered)?
The answer is I did call, and he had pocket 7's, for 7 full of Q. I got the suckout Q on the river, and won Q full A over his Q full 7.
Evidently I missplayed it - but should you call a big hand on someone who has consistently tried to bluff you on the small hands?
