The results should be TigersmithGU folds.

You still have 1/2 your stack left to continue on.

well u could fold,,but i might call { remember im a donky }
but IMO the only ace he could be holding is AK { i think he would have raised all in on flop with AA}
so with that said, i think he is more likely to have JJ or QQ in this situation than AK, but we really dont have much of a read either, so we dont really know if he would overplay a hand like AQ or 99 and call preflop
up to ur discretion but i might make the call here but im prone to loose calls

Now I had him on a Hand preflop just like pantin007 said, if he had AA he would push all in preflop. I dont believe he would rereraise with AK then make my re raise call preflop with AK. But then again there are some donky players out there.

Therefore Im pretty sure he had QQ in that type of reraise/call.

well in my experiences with a 10 dollar buyin or really just about any on line poker game people tend to over play every hand that is paired or has an ace how many times have you seen some one push all in when blinds are like 30 60 just to end up picking up the blinds makes you wonder why they would push allin with a big hand rather than make a raise and try to build a pot. So like said before you really didnt have much of a read on your opponent being the 3rd hand and they could of had an ace or a under pair but laying down the kings was probably the right move reguardless.

Well the buy in should tell you a bit more skill here, So why the raise early and out of position? I would have pimped the dudes to give me some fold equity for it only takes one bullet to knock off the twins.

Well here is the result, I wasted my time bank to like 1 on this hand and yea..I finally made a decision based on my read preflop(Just to see how good it was) . I believed he had QQ or JJ preflop.

BET laceee, 1460 and is all-in
CALL TigersmithGU , 1460
