      ... I'll probably be the perfect cash player :D

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $17.62
      MP3:
      $23.78
      CO:
      $25.12
      BU:
      $33.99
      SB(Hero):
      $25.00
      BB:
      $22.75

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, A.
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.75, BU folds, Hero raises to $2.5, BB calls $2.25, CO folds.

      Flop: ($5.75) T, K, T (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, BB calls $3.50.

      Turn: ($12.75) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      River: ($12.75) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.00, BB raises to $15.25, Hero calls $8.25.

      Final Pot: $43.25.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and tens (A A)
      BB shows four of a kind, tens (T T)
      BB wins with four of a kind, tens (T T)

      Villain is decent and I know it. No way is he checking behind a king on the turn then raising the river. I make the "blockbet" yet I call anyway. He clearly either has Kings full or quad tens.

      I NEED TO STOP BEING SUCH AN ACES-LOVING DONK. Come on everybody tell me how stupid I am, will make me feel much better.

      When you make a blockbet it's to fold when you are raised, if you make a small bet to induce then you have to call i think that's the most important thing in this hand not that you have AA

      I know, that was the plan... but this time some invisible force, the "Donk Force" if you may, told me "shizzz dude you gonna fold aces? rly? LOL!".

      So the fact that I had Aces IS the important thing here... as I usually fold to raises when I blockbet 100% of the time (unless I have the nuts and am pretending to blockbet).

      Thanks STR82ACE & may you never see a more stupid hand than this in the future.

      Seriously, I was just messing with you, meant nothing by it. Hate getting aces cracked as much as the next guy.

      But if they're going to get cracked, may it always be by quads on the flop and an opponent who likes to call flop and check turn. He played it perfectly imo, and you couldn't have known you were beat I'm sure.

      Why no turn bet? I'd probably go broke here too actually. Just in a different manner :)

      dunno based on preflop action I figured I'm either crushing QQ/JJ/AK or crushed by KK/TT. Wanted to check/call the turn.

      Exactly, which makes it all the harder to swallow that I fell for it!
