Interested in thoughts from those playing 5nl SNAP ( or even 2nl & 10nl also) on 888.

Recently returned after a break and over last few days have seen several times what look to be tightish regs with decent stats 3 and 4 bet shoving AA pre flop. These players don't look fishy or spewy and I've not seen similar behaviour from these sorts of players with KK, QQ or AK (they seem to just make standard 3 or 4 bets with those hands).

I'm not keen to fold KK at any time for obvious reasons, but is there a case in these fast fold games if I can ascertain a player type who seems to ONLY make these 3 or 4 bet shoves pre flop with AA? Seems nitty to even consider it!

This is a situation where I would certainly make a note on that specific player and adjust accordingly (tighten up a bit at 1 observation and tighten up more if you see it more often). I would never go as far as to put the entire reg population 3/4-bet shoving on a single hand though. For one, it just doesn't seem realistic and secondly, they might start catching on counter-exploiting your over-folding tendency.

The thing with exploiting a fast-fold population is to make moderate adjustments as to not open yourself up to exploration. So you might start 3-betting lighter in EP because the population on average doesn't defend enough, but if you go too far you're just opening yourself up to getting 4-bet bluffed a ton. Folding KK or even AK pre facing a random shove is opening yourself up to be exploited and I wouldn't recommend it outside of very specific reads on a single player.
