Personally i don't like tiny pairs eg. 22,33,44 when EP. These pairs, no matter what, are consistent Losers (highlight) no matter how good you play them from EP. I've read and checked database results (not mine) and they explained it's just bad to play them on EP. Regardless this, your call is good for set mining since your stack is > 40 BB (my fav ...

You have to call once. You have AA, in fact i would definitely called with QQ+ without history. Most players try this raise with a high J to state their hand, to slow-down the action on Turn/River and define their hand better by Villain's reply. Not necessarily the nemesis of AA, a set. In my opinion sets are betting/raising the Flop on particularly wet ...

I'd call once, and then fold if the villain continues to bet. He probably has "trips," maybe jacks. To "protect" yourself, you need to develop a reputation of raising not only with AA, but with lower pairs.

Couple of things jump out at me here: 1 - make sure that you are only set-mining small pairs in multi-way pots. Set-mining 22 heads-up is a long-term loser. In your situation it just so happened that other people came along. But calling a raise like this when there's no guarantee that others will be in the pot with you will cost you money over the long ...

It depends on how much you think this player is capable of running bluffs. If the player is totally incapable of bluffing, it's fine to fold on the flop. However, against a normal player they will have semibluffs in their range at a minimum. Against super nits - fold Against average players who can semibluff - call once and re-evaluate on the turn and ...

With that many players in the pot you should have raised rather than slow play. A raise of half to 3/4 the pot makes it mathematically a bad decision for anyone on a draw to call. But you could get a call from someone who hit the flop with less than a set. If someone on a draw makes the bad decision and calls, it makes no difference if you win or lose that ...
