      Hello,

      Would be glad to hear some feedback on the following play - as well as the logic I used to justify it:

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy hand converter:

      Known players:
      MP1:
      $10.10
      MP2:
      $3.45
      MP3:
      $6.05
      CO:
      $1.50
      BU:
      $4.80
      SB:
      $9.70
      BB:
      $22.85
      UTG2:
      $1.85

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A, A.
      Hero raises to $0.4, 5 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.20) J, K, 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $1.45, SB calls $1.45, BB folds.

      Turn: ($4.10) 9 (2 players)

      River: ($4.10) 8 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.10.

      Results follow (highlight to see):

      SB shows three of a kind, sevens (7h 7c)
      Hero shows a pair of aces (Ah Ac)
      SB wins with three of a kind, sevens (7h 7c).


      My own reasoning is this(admittedly, done after I actually played - during the play I was more like 'AA -> raise' then 'overpair AA -> push'):
      - given villain called (not raised) a UTG raise, the he prob. doesn't have KK, and prob. not JJ. That leaves 77 and KJ, while everything else that is potentially callable, (AQ-AT,KQ, QJ, JTs, TT-88 and even some lower pocket pairs). If so, I am likely ahead, and with a flush possibilty, I should be pushing right away.
