SeanyJ24:...?

I've only been at the table for 10 hands, no reads on the guy and stats are pretty useless with so few hands. Is this AK or AQ often enough to make a call here?

He only limped in pre-flop. What could he have? A/9? A/J? 9/9?
I don't know.... if he had one of those hands, would he make a pot-sized with a flop like that?

I'd fold. It's probably too weak, but I don't like calling with just bottom two pair.

I'm guessing he has A/9.

It might be A9 or 99, or A5 and he thinks you're saying you don't believe he has an ace. I'd lean towards calling this against a shortish stack.

I'd like to add that his chip stack makes a call tempting. Stacks like that tend to make stupid/desperate steals like that. I mean, why make such a huge over bet rather than try to lure you in? You know... I just can't give him respect this hand.

Now I say call and laugh when he shows T/Qo.
