      I called the flop, planning to check/fold after that.
      which I guess is idiotic, but I could not lay down KK to one 1/2 pot bet.

      is there anything I could have done here?
      check raised and tried to rep AA or QQ ?
      seemed too risky at the time, I figured AQ or AJ (thinking I had the AK reduced) or TT+
