      Turn: ($2) T (2 players)

      River: ($4.30) J (2 players)
      SB bets $1.25, Hero folds

      $4.30 pot ($0.18 rake)
      Final Board: K K 7 T J
      SB mucked and won $4.12 ($2.12 net)
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$2 net)

      SB - ( $5.12 USD ) - VPIP: 25, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 4

      PF: I 3-bet around 5.5x here because I didn't want e original raiser to call & then give odds for e BU & SB to do so & play Aces 4 way.

      Flop: His range for calling such a huge 3-bet in SB is basically AK, JJ+ for a TAG (assumed). My initial reaction to this Flop was that it wasn't a good one for me. I'm either WAWB.

      At that time, I decided to x because I didn't want to make him fold out JJ/QQ. With Kx in his hands, I'm beat anyway already. I felt that betting on e Turn will give me more value.

      Turn: I am also not very pleased w the T as he might call TTs pre. But I had to bet for value and fold to a raise.

      River: Arghh one of e worst card ever. I would have checked behind most Rivers by now already or maybe make a 1/4-1/3 bet. But when he donks, I think e only hand I can beat is QQ. The other hands which beat me are TT/JJ/KK/AK. It's frustrating though, I had very nice odds but I think right now I can only beat a bluff which was QQ.

      Not sure if I played too passive here.

      1) C-bet on e flop?
      2) Call on e turn w such odds?

      hey you are from singapore right? im looking for singapore poker friends, add me on facebook?

      pre flop - i agree with the bigger raise size for value, but we dont mind them calling either we get more value and they wont have the right odds to call either so with them calling we are making more $$$

      flop - his range is probably 99+ AQ KQ AJ TK. we should still bet here for value against his pocket pair hands, K is pretty rare

      turn - bet again for value

      river - as played it looks like a blockbet, im not folding here he could have a hand like QJ TQ etc, i could even consider raising for value against 2nd pair hands, or at least call and be ahead most of the time.
