      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:diamond: , A:club:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0,30, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0,90, BB calls $0,80, MP1 calls $0,60.

      Flop: ($2,70) 6:spade: , T:spade: , 7:club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $1,80, BB calls $1,80, MP1 raises to $6,50, Hero raises to $9,05 (All-In), BB calls $7,25, MP1 calls $2,55.

      Turn: ($29,85) 2:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $2,55 (All-In), MP1 calls $0,05 (All-In), BB gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($29,95) 2:diamond: (3 players)

      Final Pot: $29,95

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and deuces (Ad Ac)
      MP1 shows a full-house, sixes full of deuces (6c 6d)
      BB shows two pairs, kings and deuces (Kd Kc)

      MP1 wins with a full-house, sixes full of deuces (6c 6d)

      It's just too hard to give up AA, isn't it? :(

      Id say it would be hard to get away from that hand given MP1 put in a PFR. Only set hand I am possibly giving credit for often is TT. Id expect MP1 is capable of playing that same line JJ-KK play as played.

      Preflop: OK but you could also add one BB because you are OOP.
      Flop: I'd prefer to take the Bet/Fold line here, you are very often beaten by a SET here or some two pair thing, other guy maybe drawing but still the raise looks a way too strong to me. Also MP1 AF isn't that big and W$SD is 75. So Bet/Fold would be the correct play here.

      Best regards,
