      I had some history with this player. He is the type of player who likes to throw money away whenever he has any type of pair... forcing better hands to fold. However, whenever the aggression is taken away from him, he folds.

      Bodog - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $5.69
      UTG: $2.29
      Hero (MP): $5.35
      CO: $6.11
      BTN: $1.31
      SB: $4.90

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has K:heart: K:club:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, fold, fold, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.62, 3 players) 5:heart: 3:club: K:diamond:
      BB bets $0.31, Hero calls $0.31, fold

      Turn: ($1.24, 2 players) 3:heart:
      BB bets $0.93, Hero calls $0.93

      River: ($3.10, 2 players) 2:club:
      BB bets $1.55, Hero raises to $3.91 and is all-in, BB calls $2.36

      BB shows 3:spade: A:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Threes) (PreFlop 29%, Flop 2%, Turn 2%)
      Hero shows K:heart: K:club: (Full House, Kings full of Threes) (PreFlop 71%, Flop 98%, Turn 98%)
      Hero wins $10.42

      Was "letting him hang himself" the right move? I re-raised on the flop with a similar hand before and was told be veriz that re-raising on such a dry flop means I'm forcing all weaker hands to fold and so this isn't the best ine. So, I called the flop and once I made the full house decided I would shove on the river.
