Quite interesting. I'm not sure what Chuu Len came out betting with there. Maybe a flush draw of some sort? If Chuu has AQ beat at that point, why would he bet so big in terms of pot size? I think I would call because if they have A-Q beat then they would either have AK, 2 pair or a set here and want value, check to you, and then raise/call your bet.

He has limp-called and then bet the pot on the flop.

What type of hand does that?

In my opinion its a very strong one from a tricky player, a drawing hand, or someone who is either WA/WB and looking to win the hand there or fold.

Based on the fact that he is a short stack and I do not see short stacks doing this action on the flop with a mega stron hand, I go all in.

Personal view.

It's probably something stupid like A6...

If my opponent had a better A, a set, or 2 pair, then his pot size bet doesnt make a lot of sense since he is losing value on his hand. Unless he put me on an Ace that I couldnt fold, but thats almost impossible since he was a new player....unless he had been observing....So, I was confident i could rule those hands out and I put my opponent on a flush draw, straight draw, or maybe a 6 with a flush draw. These hands I could beat and would make some sense of his pot size bet.

You have to remember that FTP has that neat little "Pot" button that is so easy to hit for new people. You have to slide or enter a third, half, two thirds pot probe or continuation bet. I hate sliders! They never stop where I want. But, I digress. He probably thought pot was the next logical bet after min.

I was hoping for a T9h/76h, combo draw of some sort. But 77, that's a letdown. For him too, I guess.

I guess I can kinda understand the raise on the flop for him...I could only assume he was testing you to see if you actually had an Ace or better hand..

But then going all in...What?!?!

Good hand, that's what those donks deserve! :D
