      Hero wins with a full-house, nines full of threes (9s 9c)

      How to play this hand if I were the villian (BB, with pocket aces). First of all bigger preflop raise, thats obvious. But postflop.
      - Betting flop seems mandatory.
      - The board is on low cards, we cannot put our enemy to have hands like 94, 32 etc. I also think with a bigger re-raise cards lower than pocket 7 will fold most of the time.
      - The turn is 3, we might be able to put him on A5s. So I'd still bet here, about half of pot size.
      - River, since I am so committed, I don't see myself not calling down his possible shove. So check/call?

      This is near unavoidable?

      I think bet/bet/shove is fine play if you have aces that spot.
      I´d only bet smaller but I don´t really think I should get away my hand, since although villain sometimes have set and I´m valuedowning myself I think he still can have there worse hands, like TT/JJ/9x which would call me down.
