Question

In your six-max game online it’s folded to you and you raise on the button to $7. The tight-aggressive small blind three-bets to $27. You feel he is capable of three-betting light so you make the call. The flop comes A J 8. Your opponent bets $40 and you call. The turn comes 3. He checks; you also check. The river comes Q and your opponent shoves all-in for $200.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Fold

Your opponent is never doing this with a hand that you beat. Look at your perceived range. Your hand is pretty much faceup. When you call the three-bet before the flop and then call the bet on the flop, you make it obvious you have an ace. Your opponent doesn't believe you can fold said ace, and is shoving for value, so go ahead and fold.
