      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with K K
      UTG+1 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, 3 folds, CO calls $0.12, 3 folds

      Hero bets $0.21, CO raises to $0.72, Hero raises to $2.45, CO raises to $3.88 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.43

      Turn: ($8.06) J (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($8.06) A (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $8.06 pot ($0.40 rake)
      Final Board: Q J 4 J A
      Hero showed K K and lost (-$4 net)
      CO showed 4 4 and won $7.66 ($3.66 net)

      I have folded in this spot before but once I re-raised on the flop I was pot committed. My pre-flop raise might have got me in trouble but he would have called if I had bet 4x if he was playing call20. I had ruled out QQ and JJ but I guess he wouldnt play AQ this way and definitely AJ so QJ or a set were the only possibilities.

      If I made my re-raise on the flop a bit smaller could I get away from the hand?

      Hello 0744379,

      Don't like it that much. You will rarely see a lot worse hands here for going broke for 100BB. I'd really be rather inclined to just Bet/Fold it while being OOP. Wont bring us much either to Bet/Call it.

      AQ most likely wouldn't raise here. Also I wouldn't exclude QQ/JJ. Some players still play very nitty and Call with them. Since your UTG range is still going to be very strong.

      Best Regards.
