Automatic Call?


1/2 NL cash game at the local casino. Very loose crowd around the table. I'm in the SB with AdKd on my first good hand. Haven't seen a flop yet. The EP players fold, a player in MP raises to $7. The player immediately to my right (the button), a very loose aggressive player who has raised 10BB+ several times since I've been seating there (sometimes into unopened pots...) calls. I raise to $32. The BB, a quiet player with a stack of about $140 calls, so do the first raiser and the button. The pot is $128. The flop comes Kc3c7d, giving me TPTK. I bet $60. The BB goes all in for his remaining $104 while the other two players fold. I call. Both the turn and the river cards do not improve my hands and he turns over AA, wining the pot. Was this an automatic call? Thanks for your inputs

    Auto call indeed. $44 more to you with a pot of $292? If you were bluffing and only had 1 card and a cocktail napkin, you call that. Rough beat though.

    Thank you!

    Agreed. You are calling against his range not his hand. He could have AK or KQ. With his stack and this pot, he should ship any K or flush draw.
    Note: OOP against lag player. Consider raising more. $38 to 40 maybe?
    Played properly. Bad result. Reload. You are in position on a loose player. Good spot.
