      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 2, 2.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 raises to $0.04, 2 folds, CO raises to $0.17, BU folds, Hero calls $0.16, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0.13.

      Flop: ($0.55) A, 2, 9 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, CO bets $0.55, Hero calls $0.55, MP1 raises to $1.10, CO raises to $1.65, Hero calls $1.10, MP1 raises to $2.20, Hero calls $0.55.

      Turn: ($6.6) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.03, MP1 calls $0.03.

      River: ($6.66) A (3 players)

      Final Pot: $6.66.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a full-house, twos full of aces(2 2).
      CO shows a pair of aces(4 3).
      MP1 shows a full-house, nines full of aces(9 9).

      MP1 wins with a full-house, nines full of aces(9 9).

      I showed the result here because hands like this seem to destroy any hard earned gains that I have made during a session. Is this hand just bad luck or should I have respected the checkraise from MP1 as a higher set?

      MP1: VPIP 37 PFR 7 AF 2.4 WTS 18
      CO: Was playing on tilt

      Hi ILuvBeachVB!

      I would prefer fold here. For set value you need call 20 (that means $3.4 - lower of the stacks - yours $2.4). There might be additional raising preflop in which case you would have to fold.

      As played:
      Flop: I would like to stack of on the flop ($0.03 on turn does not cout). I play here as well check raise, as it is likely some one has A will and bet it. AK (especially AKs with FD will stack of here as well). With the size of the pot and remaining stacks there is no other option that get i in with the (bottom) set.
