Your villain looks like a very boring fish over a decent number of hands. Looks like you probably got set mined on the flop here and, after the turn, there's not much room for improvement for you. However, your villain could just as easily be donking on a lower Ax like AQ. In my experience at these levels you're usually beat on the flop with your villain's bet. Take a look at previous hands with the villain and see how often he overplays his top pair or weaker premium pairs on this type of board.

Vilain flat called preflop then called a 2BB raise.. raised 5x postflop.. then shoved pot size on the turn..

Possibilities a/p basic pocker rules: pokets 6s, 9s or a successfull slow play of pocket As preflop.. High pair like Ks or Qs.. which you beat but it doesn't know that..

The 5x times raise postflop goes against all rules of pot control.. I mean, with a call it makes the pot 6x bigger.. so to play this type of pot, you need something strong.. Still Ks or Qs are a possibility here.. Raise to check if Ks or Qs are still good..

Two pairs is also a possibility with A9...

The raise preflop wasn't so big so AJ, AQ are also possible... worst case senario, AK too!!

Straight, I don't think so.. it makes no sens with the raise postflop... or he bluffed and got lucky as <insert your favorite adjective>!!!

It's tight a bit, but with the warnings sent by CO, I would fold also

Do you think, Should be better to fold to 5x reraise on flop ?

Sorry for my English.

MAYBE... I mean we'll never know because we don't know what vilain had.. and it's not like you played badly.. you raised preflop announcing a strong hand.. then, you hit the flop, Top-Top in hand, you take the lead.. when playing agressive, that's the way to do it..

but if you play with someone playing the amount of money instead of the amount of BB, at this stake, it's nothing to call a 4BB raise preflop, even with pocket deuces..

Playing that hand and reviewing it, I would probably change my bet sizing preflop, maybe at 6-7x trying to use psychology to make fold small pockets and weak aces. Looks like nothing, but between 8¢ and 10¢ just by the amount of digits it can change someone's mind.. then check-call/raise/fold postflop and control the pot in case of a turn.. after all, someone called my raise.. what does he have?

..and I would probably look at it because of losing it, worse then it happened to you. :D

Its important that you put your opponent on a range preflop. This guy could have flopped a set of 9s 5s or even As. He could also have flopped 2 pair or turned 2 pair. He could also have turned a straight.

I would have folded the turn to a raise. Mabye that makes me too tight, but its better than getting stacked. If i had to guess his hand, i would put him on a set of 5s here. Pocket 9s and AA would re raise preflop. Pocket 5s would just call your raise. Another strong possibility here is that he had As 5s
