Checkup: AA vs 55

Hey guys,

Im on tilt so I just wanna confirm that i played right so I can feel better i guess.

Me, Next to Villain 1: 300-330BB
Villain 1, Mid position: 750-1000BB
Villain 2, me +1: 120-150BB

This is a 1/1 USD game in Sweden.

Background: Preflop raises usually around 6-12bb depending on straddle or not. Straddle is more often than not.

Villain 1 is a tight player, usually open with only monsters (AJ+).
Me: mixed range, but more tight than not. Playing pretty passive. At this moment Ive had a active play for 15 min and Ive folded some big hands.
Villain 2: loose player, is short compared to other players and has a wide range.

Preflop:
I look at my hand and see pocket Aces, finally!
Villain 1, raises to 5bb. I reraise to 21bb. Villain 2 calla, Villain 3 calls and Villain 1 (the one who raised first). Potsize about 90bb.

Flop: 5 8 J

Postflop:
Villain 1 checks. I bet 76bb (80% potsize ish). Villain 2 goes all in (120bb). Villain 3 folds. Villain 1 reraises to all in. At this moment Im 100bb deep in the pot in a pot for about 900bb.

Im really doubting my hand at this moment, hes to tight to play a flushdraw like that so im putting him on Jacks (trips). Possibly hes slowplaying KK or QQ, but then he Would prefer some potcontrol i think. So im 80% conviced that hes winningbthe hand.

Either way, i call.

Turn and river is Q 10

He turns 55 trips, i turn A A, villain 2 turns AA aswell.

So my question is, even if my gut says Fold, did i make the right call?

(Also I have Ace of hearts, which makes me even more conviced of him not playing a flushdraw like that.) As you csn guess, its NL.

Would you motivate why its a ”clear fold”? The only hand hes repping is Jacks or a flushdraw (I have A). I just dont see him betting preflop from midposition with 55, which is most likely to just get reraised. As i said, many players are deep and the only logical thing to do is to just call and call a raise which is most likely to come.

We are 90bb ($) deep already, I have good pot odds against villain 1. I see his range as (JJ, QQ, KK, maybe 9h10h). As I said, this is a player that usually opens with (AJ+) so 55 does not fit in to his range.

Regarding forum rules: Im sorry, new here and writing from my phone.

Heís 300bbs deep with someone who will insta-stack-off with an overpair. Implied odds are huge. Also the guy who also had aces is a ****ing idiot that cost you your stack by not 4betting.

I don’t like your bet sizing OTF, you’ve effectively committed yourself and it looks super strong so you most likely fold out all worse hands. Plus this flop is setsville vs 3 players in a 3bet pot. Bet 1/3 pot/fold to this action.

Even as s fun player, try to eliminate this type of thinking. Leads to stacking off badly as you did here.

Sure, but at this moment we are 4 players in the pot. 2-3 most likely got a range that benefits from the turn. The main reason for sizing is that most donkeys in the table calls anyways. But afterwards, im leaning more to your opinion. Even though 1/3 pot does not get max value that we should aim to get.
