      MP3 shows two pairs, aces and kings(A J).

      Hero wins with a full-house, fours full of kings(4 2).


      MP3 was loose and opened small at times. I got into a tricky spot with 24 on 44K flop. Since I have no kicker, I played it fast and raised for value against Kx and semi bluffs. Villain donked all the way. I was scared that villain had the K so I just called on river.

      How should I make improvement?

      Hi

      I would fold preflop as this is just way too weak and tough to play. As played the flop and turn raise are fine. U need to build the pot right away since u are deep.

      As played u cant raise the river as he might have a king.

      Thanks
