      Nh. Can´t really do anything else. If he has set then you´re beat but hopefully he´d also show sometimes Qx.

      Yeah, set of course (77).
      I sometimes have problem to plan the hand with AA, cause if i don't want to give enough odds for the pockets, than i have to 3bet too big preflop. Like here i 3-bet quite big, but it's still not enough, cause if he thinks he can stack me, than he still gets the odds. And he can think that, cause with my big 3-bet i really show that i have KK+.
      So i thought maybe it's better to 3-bet smaller to leave place to get away from the hand? But the proble is that this villain would bet 3 street with his set i'm sure, and i would end up stacked again.
      Any thoughts about how can i avoid these situations in the future?

      You are going to be squeezing there with more than just AA and KK you can add at least AK and QQ and even that is being very tight, you can even raise some real trash hands there since it is a fairly good spot to squeeze with the open raise coming from the CO.

      When the button calls you can usually put him squarely on some kind of low pocket pair or suited connector and his call in this situation was incorrect if you consider your range for squeezing. Going broke in a 3bet pot with an overpair for 100bbs is never wrong. I probably just shove the turn anyway, you only had a pot size bet left.
