Don't laugh at the limits... just jumped on this table while the $0.50/1 table was full, and found it quite fun ripping apart the noobs for a while... :evil::evil::laugh: (anyone else ever do this??)

Anyway, comments on this hand? By the turn it looks like we're going all the way, so I might as well get all his chips in as the agressor rather than waiting for the river. That was my thinking anyway. Couldn't put him on a bigger Ace in a limped pot. A6 or 66 the only worry...

Looks fine.

I don't even consider A6 or 66 greatly here, as I think it's surely unlikely he raises the flop with them?

Put simply, you're looking at a guy with the case Ace, and as it's more likely he has a lower kicker than an 8 (both from a pure statistical point of view and a more practical point of view given thr preflop action). As if he has the Ace he's not folding it makes sense to jam the turn. Add in the small (?) possibility he's an idiot with KK/67/two cards and it just makes jamming look better.

At this limit most players don't raise PF with anything. They are quite happy to limp. When I play at these tables people actually get mad when I raise PF because "they haven't even seen cards on the board yet." LMAO

I wouldn't be suprised if he has any pocket pair or A-X to be calling an all-in right now.

He actually had pocket sixes but I'm not sure if there was a way to get away from it.
