What would you do? #239 - Easy fold?

Bodog $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em - 8 players
The Hand History Converter

BB: $24.65
UTG: $38.05 - 38 / 8 @ 135 hands
UTG+1: $24.65 - 10 hands, 0/0 with no trickery
MP1: $33.86
MP2: $30.95
Hero (CO): $55.25
BTN: $45.90
SB: $33.92 - 36/22 @ 142 hands

Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is CO with Td Th
UTG calls $0.25, UTG+1 calls $0.25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 1 fold, SB calls $1.40, 1 fold, UTG calls $1.25, UTG+1 raises to $3.50, Hero calls $2, SB calls $2, UTG calls $2
Pretty certain SB will call if I call, and SB will pay off at a minimum if I hit.

Flop: ($14.25) 9d 3c 2c (4 players)
SB checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 bets $21.15 all in, Hero ???

Even though he's a new player to me, I feel as though I'm CRUSHED a HUGE portion of the time in this limp / raise spot (mostly AA, rarely KK).  I think a smaller percentage of the time, he's showing up with AK, but I don't see a totally new player to the table terribly overplaying AK like this.  As expected, he shows up with AA.
Hero folds, SB raises to $30.42 all in, UTG folds

Turn: ($56.55) 2s (2 players - 2 are all in)

River: ($56.55) 8c (2 players - 2 are all in)

Final Pot: $56.55
UTG+1 shows Ac As
SB shows Qs 9s
UTG+1 wins $53.75
(Rake: $2.80)


  1. The limp/reraise is rarely AK in my experience, UNLESS the raiser is a maniac, and the limp/rr'er is trying to trap. Here, I'm assuming your stats are more in line, so this is always a monster.

    Agree with the easy fold of TT here.

  2. The only AK I could see him making this move with is the AKc. I'd expect a bigger reraise (2/3 of pot) preflop to isolate with AKsuited.
