Default Keep losing with AA. Do you like the fold?

Villain looks like a ABC player, 20/10/2.4 ... Did nothing fancy, always show good hands...

Once again, in my short NL carreer, I can't win with AA and it's definately my most costy hand so far..

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $ BB (7 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cx

SB ($16.65)
BB ($24.45)
UTG ($5.75)
MP1 ($44.15)
MP2 ($18.02)
CO ($28.45)
Hero ($30.35)

Preflop: Hero is Button with A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]. SB posts a blind of $0.10. MP2 posts a blind of $0.35.
<font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, MP2 (poster) checks, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $1</font>, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, MP2 calls $0.75.

Flop: ($2.45) 8[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">MP2 bets $3</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $9</font>, MP2 calls $13.92 (All-In), Hero folds.

Final Pot: $28.37


It really smelt like TT. Big reraise on flop planing to fold an all-in. TT looked like the kind of hand he could cold call PF and indeed, he showed me his hand after..

But still, do you like the fold?

After posting this, I just realized that 4 more $ was closing the action. I know it looks weak but I was so damn sure he was on a set.. still weak?

You played poker instead of playing math - great fold. You saved yourself 16bb's. Make notes on your opponent. The size of your raise defined his hand for you pretty well although he's short so it still may be hard to tell without more info on him. If you think you could've accomplished the same thing by betting less then you should've as the only point of your raise at that time was to get info imo-really you want to bet enough to make him 3bet a monster but not enough so he folds a weaker(AT) hand. If I'm willing to fold this hand on the flop I raise less - just over a min raise.
