      Could I have played this differently?

      I just dont see how I get away from the hand. Villain is pretty loose 32VPIP over 120 hands. AF = 1.4. I put him on a weaker A here or something like TT.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, J.
      Hero raises to $0.20, CO folds, BU calls $0.20, SB folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.62) 8, A, 2 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.45, BU calls $0.45, BB folds.

      Turn: ($1.52) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.15, BU calls $1.15.

      River: ($3.82) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, BU raises to $3.20, Hero calls $1.20.

      Final Pot: $10.22.
      Results follow:

      BU shows a full-house, eights full of aces(8 8).
      Hero shows three of a kind, aces(A J).

      BU wins with a full-house, eights full of aces(8 8).

      Hello musabasjoo,

      Since the opponent is so loose and seems to be Calling station then I don't see why we even should consider Check/Folding at some point, I would have played the same way, Well done! And exactly, he can easily hold a weaker Ax type of hand which he would have played the same way.

      Best regards.
