# Folding AA after the flop?

Hero in BB hits AA before the flop. BB is $600, there are 3 or 4 callers (I'm old and can never recall all the details), and hero doesn't like to see his AA busted by a runner-runner so he raises$3000. Villain (OTG) calls but everyone else folds. The flop is 10xJxQx (rainbow with inside straight draw), hero bets another $3000, villain pushes. Hero doubts villain flopped straight based on call before the flop. Hero puts him on pair, 2 pair, or a possible set but hero only has about$12K left and calls. Good call?

Epilogue:

Turns out villain only had one J so the flop only gave him a pair of Jacks but the river gave him a JJJ and the pot.

• Usually, a BB special refers to when a player in the BB has a trashy, often unplayable hand, and is fortunate to see a flop, where they hit a very strong, disguised hand. It's not meant to refer to good hands and common scenarios ;D – Toby Booth Nov 9 '12 at 18:27
