      Tyrnyffel just joined the table so I couldnt get a perfect read on him (i put him on either AK, KQ, AJ or possibly underpair like 10's or queens) Anyway once I hit my set of kings I didn't want to play the typical check raise which is obvious to good players who would easily fold their tp tk. I made it look like I have top or middle pair by throwing out a small information bet and he reraised me 3x initial bet. Ok I am thinking he has AK or KQ and is one of those fish that would go all in with such a hand so I made the mistake of reraising his raise and he folds. So he either got a good read on me or was bluffing with a small/medium pocket pair. I almost always take the opponents full stack when I hit a set especially if I play some hands with them i could figure out how to extract chips from them , do you think in this case if I just called his reraise that he would continue to put chips in?

      I think he would have, but I was also worried with the 2 clubs and straight draw on the board, but still I should have called i think.

      Think it as you were the opponent. You bet prf and somebody re-raises, which indicates a hand like AK or JJ+. Then on the flop , in case you didnt hit anything and have a medium pair or hit your TPTK and want to induce a bet from hands like JJ and QQ you check and a small c-bet follows. Since the better re-raised me prf , that either means he has a better hand and slowplays or didnt hit the flop and wants to push me out of the hand (for example has QQ), so I re-raise to see where I am actually at.. if he calls or raises then I usually am behind and can give up the hand , if he folds then i make value.
      Atleast imo..

      First use pokerstrategy handconventer.

      Preflop was ok. 1.2 would be the right amount but 1.1 is ok.

      Flop: make normal cbet, about 1/2 - 2/3 here in 3bet pot. Then, if he raises, he is quite committed. Slowplay here doesnt make sense.

      As played: I dont see any way to extract more money from him. Most times you cannot take whole stack from your opponent, so this outcome is good enough imo.

      well i guess so but maybe a call would force him to take another stab at stealing the pot however he knew i called which showed strength so it is unlikely i get more chips from him unless he improves his hand on turn which is also unlikely.

      betting small on the flop is interesting line and you might get often raised by a wide range of hands, but since board is too drawy to b/c, c/rai on the turn I´d prefer 3-bet on the flop to get all the money all-in.
      If he has there some kind of draw and folds, then I´m happy also with that result, since he likely has there against your hand 25-30% equity
