      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 3, 3.
      MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 raises to $0.20, CO folds, Hero calls $0.20, SB calls $0.18, BB folds, MP2 raises to $0.90, MP3 calls $0.70, Hero calls $0.70, SB folds.

      Flop: ($2.95) 2, A, 9 (3 players)
      MP2 checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $1.00, MP2 calls $1.00, MP3 folds.

      on flop i thought i can fold KK QQ JJ by representing A or set (mostly set because i called raise preflop and then called reraise too)
      i was in position .. he check-called

      Turn: ($4.95) K (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $2.65, MP2 calls $2.62.

      on turn he checked , there is only 1 way for me to win this pot
      K is a bad card because if he had KK .. he hits set
      if i bet he folds underpairs , if i was him i would fold AQ and AK would call maybe
      but he played check flop , check turn ... so can he have AK ? not really
      i decided to represent a set and go for it

      River: ($10.22) J (2 players)

      Final Pot: $10.22.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of threes(3 3).
      MP2 shows a pair of aces(A Q).

      MP2 wins with a pair of aces(A Q).

      You should have folded that hand pre-flop, you don't get enough implied odds.

      As played,check/fold flop. Opponents' 3bet range includes too many Ax -combos that you can't bluff out of that pot.

      Hello bonecore,

      Preflop: Fold it preflop, you can't set-mine it here.

      As played
      Postflop: Check it behind, why would you even Bet it here? He could easily Check/call with an Ace there as well nor we can't be sure if he even folds KK or whatsoever. Another reason to fold it preflop to avoid such mistakes. :(

      Best Regards.
