      Ok the only mistake in my play I see is that my preflop re-raise was too small. Can anyone tell me how I could have avoided the outcome of this hand? I am not considering this a bad beat since the guy clearly outplayed me post-flop.

      You should reraise about x3 meaning 1.5

      Tough luck but setups like KK vs JJ will nice bring you nice $ longterm. KK vs JJ is as good as it gets, you don't want to make villain fold pf, you want to stack him ;)

      pls convert the hand otherwise it is very hard to read .
      you should reraise preflop at least 3 x his initial raise . you dont want to give him odds to call with any two cards that he raised .
      on the turn you should just put him allin
