      What is your play and why ?

      Action: 2nd level (15 min blinds) 50/100
      You are in the CO position with AA
      Your stack 8,300 (average stack is around the 10,000 starting stack) the Button has about 10,500

      You are faced with 4 limpers and raise to 600 (with the SB and BB the pot is now 1,150) and the button raises to 1500 everyone folds except the CO +1 who calls and the pot is 4,150 (5,050 if you call).

      The Button is a strong player who you assume has a large pair (JJ, QQ KK) and the CO +1 is a weak player who possibly has a A X type hand.

      Given your stack size DO YOU : –

      a) CALL
      b) RAISE (minimum)
      c) MOVE ALLIN
      d) FOLD

      Please give your reasons for your choice .. if you pick D .. please delete your post.

      I think I would shove … A similar hand happened to me at the IPC… this was like the 5th hand I played… I have a tight table image…. I am dealt cowboys on the SB.. The table limps to me (100-200) blinds and I make it 1400 to go…. The cut off raises to 3k total and I shove… Cut off tank calls with Pocket 7’s …. THe reason I played the hand this way was because the cut off was a player who always raised with Monsters ( or ANY ACE) and limped with Suited connectors/ small – mid pairs kinda hands… so when he 4 bet i put him on some kinda pair , but i thought the most profitable way to play the hand was to shove…. Because, If he had a pair too, he is most often going to play thinking I have a big ace and its a flip, however if i flat call and if an A or a K shows up I might just not get the kind of action I need… Hence I shoved..

      Yeah I jammed … Button called and CO+1 folded .. exactly what I wanted … AA V QQ except the board ran out 10 6 2 …. Q on the turn and the river a blank.

      To make matters worse he called knowing I had Aces … (told me so while CO +1 was tanked pondering calling) …
