      Poker Stars
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.01/$0.02
      5 players
      Villain ($0.83 in chips)
      UTG ($5.72 in chips)
      Villain ($0.89 in chips)
      Villain ($5.07 in chips)
      Button ($1.23 in chips)
      Hero ($2.31 in chips)
      BB ($0.88 in chips)
      Villlain ($3.17 in chips)

      Pre-flop: (5 players) Hero is SB with A A
      UTG calls, CO folds, Button calls, Hero raises to $0.12, BB folds, UTG calls $0.10 (pot was $0.19), Button calls $0.10 (pot was $0.29).

      Flop: 6 2 K ($0.39, 3 players)
      UTG bets $0.06, Button raises to $0.52, Hero raises all-in $2.19, UTG raises to $3.86, Button calls.

      Turn: 9 ($5.88, 2 players + 1 all-in - Main pot: $3.57, Sidepot 1: $2.06)


      River: 7 ($5.88, 2 players + 1 all-in - Main pot: $3.57, Sidepot 1: $2.06)


      Results:
      Total pot $5.88 Main pot $3.57. Side pot $2.06. | Rake $0.25
      UTG showed [6c 6d] and won ($5.63) with three of a kind, Sixes

      Could I have noticed this somehow or played this differently to find out that UTG had hit his set without loosing everything, or was I simply too aggressive?

      The guy limped and then called your raise pre flop. This is is very often a small pocket pair, so be aware after the flop( although at this levels, people check call with anything).
      Anyhow his small bet /reraise on the flop shows a strong hand. I would fold here.

      Hi Nanouk!

      Nice hand! Sometimes you cannot avoid to run into a set. But in this case they can easily have Kx or a flushdraw. So it's correct to push all-in.

      @ Gungunhana: he is already all-in when UTG reraises ;)

      Good luck at the tables!

      Thanks Puschkin81,

      well at least nice to know I didn´t really play that wrong. Even though I had to leave the table.
      I have been playing poker for a while now. And it started pretty good until I started to try and be even more clever, which resulted in big losses. A friend told me of this site and now I am sort of trying to learn everything again. But I was never sure how to play these hands and avoid a big loss like that.
      I was sort of thinking maybe I should have just called the reraise of the button to see what UTG would have done, though I suspect he/she would have only called aswell and I probably wouldn´t have been any wiser. Especially seeing the button going all in for it with KQ.

      Thanks very much! :-)

      In any case who folds AA? Very difficult, pros who know they can be beat by any two pair won't through away AA.

      I can't make sense of this hand.
      You are in the small blind, so why aren't you first to act on the flop ?

      Now, as it stands : UTG limps first in and call a raise, which makes the probability of him holding a pocket pair somewhat more likely than normal.
      On the flop, you should've been first to act. I think you checked the flop at first but omitted that from the Grab'em report :tongue:
      If you bet out there (about 40 cents) and you see big action behind you (UTG raising, Button pushing or calling the raise), it's not that hard anymore to fold AA.

      Hi Sonic,

      looks like I got mixed up slightly there. I am on the button not in the small blind. I didn´t use grabem. It was some other programm and I had to edit the names and money values since they somehow got mucked up. Well looks like I didn´t do much better.

      Here the transcript from pokerstars directly my name is GDComputing:

      Well, with 2 bets in front of you, it's about a coinflip in EV usually whether to push through with your overpair or laying it down.
