I was playing in a MTT as one of the larger stacks. I was in the small blind position and got bluffed off of my three of kind aces and I got frustrated when villain showed the bluff with Q high. I think I made the mistake of overestimating the strength of the villain’s mistake and placing villain on a narrow range.
Here’s what happened:
SB (Hero): 60BB
BB (Villain): 80BB
Everyone folds and MP1 jams all in. I raise 2.5x with A9s. Villain calls.
Flop is AJA. Pot is 20. Hero bets 8bb and villain jams. At this point I had placed him on an Ax range and I was thinking he had either a higher kicker or flopped a FH because he struck me as fairly tight. I was tempted to call, but ultimately folded. Villain then showed Q10 bluff at the end.
I think I constructed villain’s range too tightly which kind of messed with me with the flop jam. I should’ve had the confidence to call, but I couldn’t do it. How would you all deal with this situation?
