Well... at this level, reraise pf is so often aces... but once you do call, and I call pf in this spot as well, and hit a flop like that, you have to go with your hand. I mean, he can have a variety of hands here, and even if he has pocket aces without FD, you have decent chances. The worst case scenario, he's got aces with the diamond FD, but that's just unlucky I guess. IPTS more less.

Truth. I should have found myself able to fold to the 3bet, as it really is AAxx 80+% of the time in micro level. And I agree that I'm pretty much stuck to this hand post flop....just having to hope it's that rare non AA time or hoping that at least it's not AdXdAX. In this case I was just stuck.Im a big fan of example hands that if you just fold properly early enough, you don't get stuck in marginal spots.....you can be a decent PLO player with that one ability alone.
