      $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      SB: $4.24 (84.8 bb)
      BB: $3.78 (75.6 bb) 83/13/0.7/0.0/33/23
      UTG+2: $2.46 (49.2 bb)
      MP1: $3.06 (61.2 bb)
      MP2: $1.21 (24.2 bb)
      MP3: $4.50 (90 bb)
      Hero (CO): $6.42 (128.4 bb) 22/16/3.0/6.3/43/37
      BTN: $5.68 (113.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A A
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.10, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BB calls $0.35, MP2 calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.22) 8 K Q (3 players)
      BB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $1.10, BB calls $1.10, MP2 folds

      Almost pot-size raise to protect my hand as one of them was a very loose passive fish.

      Turn: ($3.42) 6 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $4.92 and is all-in, BB calls $2.28 and is all-in

      The board was getting a bit irritating now and I didn't want the fish to suck out on me, He had less than the pot in his stack so I thought I had to shove here to protect my hand against straight and flush draws and get value from Kx hands

      River: ($7.98) 7 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results: $7.98 pot ($0.33 rake)
      Final Board: 8 K Q 6 7
      BB showed 9 T and won $7.65 ($3.87 net)
      Hero showed A A and lost (-$3.78 net)
