      unless you have a note on this player that says "only ever limps pocket pairs EP and only ever continues with trips" I think you played this hand well. Villian can easy have top pair with Qx or a draw.

      Nice hand, sir

      Best regards,

      Why are you playing with 30BB on the SB?
      And how he is first to act on the flop?

      If you keep betting and raising with AA, you cant play it wrong :)

      Thx for replies.

      Well the reason i played with 30BB was i forgot to unmark "Auto post blind" feature and i've decided i'll wait another 10 rounds. I was happy first that i forgot when i saw "Da rockets" and dissapointed later as you see.
      Nvm i finished other 3 tables with +11$ so no biggie.

      your "forgetfulness" cost you. As an SSSr we have a small margain for profit and even seemingly small mistakes cost us. We must be uber-diligent in our attention to detail. Saying you "made up for it with wins at other tables" is a clever ego trap, whereby you avoid responsibility for your action. It happens to people all the time, more than just in poker, and if you can spot the error, you can correct it and the seeming "mistake" will not repeat itself again.
      My advice is critic, perhaps harsh, yes? I only want you (and me, I learn when you learn) to be the best you can be.

      i unmark it everytime i play a pot, to avoid paying for the sb ... anyway i don't think is that big of a mistake to pay 10 cents to see 8 hands , it happens to me while multitabling on 12+ tables from time to time, but there are lots of worse mistakes out there :)
