Default ITM FTP $11 - 4 flush on flop

Seat 4: Hero (3,055)
Seat 8: Douche (4,080)
Seat 9: Villian(6,365)

Hero posts the small blind of 60
Douche posts the big blind of 120

The button is in seat #9
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Hero [A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] 7[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]]
Villain raises to 240
Hero calls 180
Douche folds
*** FLOP *** [3[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] 8[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]]
Hero bets 400
Villian raises to 6,125, and is all in
Hero ?

This is the 3rd time villian has done the push all in thing to a flop bet, in probably the last 10-15 hands.

Should I have RR preflop, or is calling ok?
Should I have checked the flop, or is the bet ok?
Should I call the all in, or should I fold?

Learning every day,

P. Dirty

I'm guessing by lack of responses, this is your way of saying easy call, or "we don't like you. go away"?

I wouldn't have bet, but rather check-raised all-in. His push is a bit weird, and probably means he has rubbish, but the blinds are only 60/120 and your stack is huge, so it's probably better to just fold here. I might also re-raise preflop, depends on the villain.

If villain has been limping a lot and seems pretty loose overall, then a RR pf is definitely in order, mainly because of your postflop postion and your relative hand strength. IOW, you stand to have the better hand now, but OOP on a flop with A7 can be tricky.

As far as the flop I like the CR as well. Villain could be doing this with nothing, a lone h drawing to a loser, some sort of pair K or other where you arent that far behind if at all...But given the stack depth and slow increasing blinds at FTP (?right?) you might find yourself a better spot against such agro flop players.

hope this helps...if you need any GT advice feel free to post here as well.

Thanks pal. This would be like Tiger Woods asking David Duval for help today.

As for the hand itself, I did end up calling, which I think was a good move, I had the A high flush draw, + an overcard. Or so I though. Villian turned over AA. After doing a little math, and using the odds calc, I was still 35-65 (1.85:1) to win the hand, and was getting 2.53:1 to call.
