      Hero shows a pair of aces(A A).

      On the flop: I realized the board was drawy, and that I needed to protece. Did I raise enough?

      On the turn: So the drw completes for a 9. Nines was definately within his range, maybe even A9, altough he might have folded that pre-flop. I think I still beat most of his range, I was putting him on a JQ, KQ, a flushdraw, maybe top pair or an overpair. What do you think?
