Then lay it down. A crying call hoping you're in a better spot than you are when you know you're beat is the worst thing. But, for $1.20 more into a $1.60 pot, knowing nothing more than what you've said here, I'm likely calling. He's definitely representing the A and he just might have it.
Here's the problem...you didn't get any info with your PF minraise. A $.30 reraise is inviting him to come along, no questions asked, if he has anything reasonable (and some of the unreasonable hands as well). You're in position against a player that "raises with the goods" and is raising from the SB potentially trying to leverage his image. So if you want to know where he's at, raise more or flat call and hope for a favorable. I opt for a reraise here to $1.25. If he pushes PF, you instacall the last $.35 with jumbo pot odds
and likely the best hand when the money went in. If he's a good player as you make him, he won't flat call PF, he'll push or fold. And if he's on a big A like you think, then you're money is in good PF while you're ahead. Can't ask for more than that.
