Usually a min-bet increase means villain has something. What something means, I don't know yet.

In this hand, the ace is a scare card considering his pf actions. But two things calmed me. One, I'm the bigstack, so I can donk it a little. Two, he only min-bet. I would think that an Ax hand here is pushing with these huge blinds (and that an AAA is checking). Perhaps two pair min bets here...

I'm with Suited and woulda pushed PF.

That said, assuming I didn't push PF, I agree with you. I'm putting villian on a missed broadway hand. I think that you're probably ahead and would call the turn.

But here's my question for you -- if the turn is a T, J, Q, or K, are you going to call villian's push?

If yes, then that seems to me to argue for pushing the flop.

If no, then that also seems to me to argue for pushing the flop.

So I'm back with Suited and woulda pushed the flop, even if I hadn't pushed PF.

Well if a Q hits on the turn, this is an easy call.

If I push the flop, is he calling me?

I quite like it, he doesn't have an ace anyway, but that big blind must be a killer, t3000? He's surely all in preflop with that. LOL. Seriously I would just push preflop assuming the blinds are 150/300 and not 1500/3000..

this is a pretty much automatic push with 300 big blind against any opponent.

You're right. It's late. But you didn't answer the question.

Probably no.

As played: I'd fold the turn, you've got chips and his betting is consistent with him having the Ace.

A reraise preflop here is bad. You are risking doubling up your opponent to a bigger stack than you only in hopes that he is bluffing somewhat and will fold. If you are called, you are never ahead here, and can at best hope for your opponent to have 88 or so.

Of course, a push preflop would have been fine.

Looks like I'm the only one thats w/ya on this one Scuba.

I know its unorthodox and 'un-standard.'

...but I still think you stack him here FAR enough of the time to make it worth while.
