      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      MP3: $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $4 (40 bb)
      BTN: $12.70 (127 bb)
      SB: $6.90 (69 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      UTG+1: $10 (100 bb)
      UTG+2: $9.55 (95.5 bb)
      MP1: $5.39 (53.9 bb)
      Hero (MP2): $13.27 (132.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A A
      UTG+1 raises to $0.30, UTG+2 raises to $0.90, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 6 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.60

      Flop: ($3.45) J 7 9 (2 players)
      UTG+2 checks, Hero bets $2.90, UTG+2 calls $2.90

      Turn: ($9.25) 8 (2 players)
      UTG+2 checks, Hero checks

      River: ($9.25) 6 (2 players)
      UTG+2 bets $5.15 and is all-in, Hero calls $5.15

      Results: $19.55 pot ($0.95 rake)
      Final Board: J 7 9 8 6
      UTG+2 showed 9 9 and won $18.60 ($9.05 net)
      Hero showed A A and lost (-$9.55 net)

      Rock UTG raises, MP decent player 3bets, I raised smaller out of greed, thinking I am ahead anyway, leaving it to them to shove QQ+, AK. I didn't really expect the call, but when he does I am putting him on TT+, AK. Or I could give him speculative hands also?

      His play indicates I am ahead, when he flats flop and checks turn, a very strong hand should have played for protection, lots of draws.

      I check behind turn hoping to get to SD without risking my whole stack. Or to hit the nutflush. Should I have shoved here?

      River I find myself forced to call vs his range, only JJ and TT beat me here.

      Hello M1rCea,

      Preflop: If you go for a raise here then you can never-ever raise so small. You are giving away very good odds for him. So practically you ain't even forcing him to make mistakes with PPs.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, the turn card is just horrible. But I doubt that I'd get it away here. Most likely I'd just ship myself right on turn:

      Board: J:heart: 7:spade: 9:heart:  8:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    50.43%  46.95%   3.48% { 77+, KhQh }
      UTG+1  49.57%  46.09%   3.48% { AdAh }

      But obviously you made a huge mistake preflop. :)

      Best Regards.
