I didn't call for set value. I also wouldn't push preflop in this situation because it allows my opponents to never make a mistake.

Why did you call then? And I find it funny when you say that pushing allows your opponent to play perfectly.

Since villain is pretty tight, its reasonable to assume he has at least a decent understanding of preflop holdings. If I push with these stacks, he folds everything except AA and KK. I called with the intention to push over any bet on almost any flop(except for ugly ones like this), and play poker on an Ace high flop. Of course we push KK preflop in a ton of situations, but I wouldn't do it in this one given that its HU against a tight villain with 100bb stacks.

villain could have AA,KK,JJ, AQ,AK, AJ, etc.... please get all your chips in preflop beacuse he could have junk. Don't fold to this action heads up.


the only question is how to get worse hands to come in for the ride baby!

that's no limit.

Well played. I'd play it the same. Good fold.

Did you have a question, or did you just want to confirm your play?

I think you are either up against AA or QQ, a lot of people make this play when there is aggressive person on their left with a monster.

Add me to the list of people wondering why you call Mr Tighty preflop, then fold an over pair on the flop...

Because the only two reasonable holdings you might have been ahead of preflop just made their set. And you're still behind AA.

Of course if you think villain is capable of big folds you might try and use the presence of the Q and J to push him off his AA. This attempt will usually be unsuccessful.
