      Button Hero ($16.11)
      SB ($12.95)
      BB ($15.34)
      UTG ($1.60)
      UTG+1 ($2.28)
      CO CO ($17.82)

      Preflop: Hero is on the Button with Kc Ad
      UTG calls 0.10, UTG+1 calls 0.10, CO raises to 0.20, Hero raises to 0.70, 4 folds, CO calls 0.50.

      Flop (1.75) 5h Ks Jc
      CO checks, Hero bets 1.20, CO calls 1.20.

      Turn (4.15) Ac
      CO checks, Hero bets 3, CO raises to 6, Hero calls 3.

      had my doubts about the reraise but as AA, KK unlikely after minraise pf, decided to call + villain is very loose player (vpip +60%)

      River (16.15) Qh
      CO moves all-in for 9.92, Hero moves all-in for 8.21

      Hi Floating!

      I would put him all-in on the turn already. His raise shows you that he likes to put a lot of money into the pot. You have top two pair. A strong hand. He can have a weaker two pair or maybe a pair plus straight/flush draw: Protect your hand.

      Good luck at the tables!

      ok,

      he turned out to have 55, so i guess being beaten by a set once in a while is part of the strategy.

      Yes. You cannot avoid it. If you would have had the 55 in that hand and your opponent AK, you would have won his whole stack as well. So, don't worry. It's part of the game.

      Good luck at the tables!
