someone lets me hang myself

Moments after listening to David Williams talk about how he is less likely now to 3-bet AA, this happens to me...

Notice how the villain CALLS the $1200 and gets the perfect storm flop.   No one giving free cards here, and I am stuck holding a big overpair, which looks good, but is beat. 

I don't see how with $4500 in their pre-flop, I am not going to get here after he checks.  So I bet what $3500 and then fold to another $3k getting 4:1?  Not likely.  I think I am stuck here.  Do you?

cooler. do you fold queens if he three bets preflop w/ 31 blinds left? Nah.

Same result as if it got all in preflop.

Some hands just end up in the toilet.

Yeah I think given that flop you are in pre or you are in post. Just one of those things unfortunately....
