      MP1: $4 (100 bb)
      Hero (BB): $4.16 (104 bb)
      CO: $9.32 (233 bb)
      BTN: $4.95 (123.8 bb)
      MP3: $4.65 (116.3 bb)
      SB: $3.42 (85.5 bb)
      MP2: $0.80 (20 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A A
      2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.14, CO calls $0.14, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.56, MP3 calls $0.42, CO calls $0.42

      Flop: ($1.70) K 8 Q (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.48, MP3 calls $1.48, CO folds

      Turn: ($4.66) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.12 and is all-in, MP3 calls $2.12

      River: ($8.90) 6 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $8.90 pot ($0.44 rake)
      Final Board: K 8 Q 9 6
      Hero showed A A and won $8.46 ($4.30 net)
      MP3 showed A Q and lost (-$4.16 net)

      Do you like my turn bet or should I just check behind which gives him a chance to bluff the river also? I can see AK hands calling and possibly AQ. Or am I just exposing myself to sets and KQ hands.

      The opponent was playing very loose for 18 hands and was showing poor cards every time he made a raise pre-flop that wasn't called. I know this doesn't really make a difference to his calling range so 88 and KQ are probably in his pre-flop range but I don think QQ and KK would have been played this way.

      Hello 0744379,

      If the opponent is playing very loose then I doubt that I would play it any differently. Most likely also played for the stacks. Nice hand! Although I would raise it bigger preflop. :)

      Best Regards.
