      Well, to start, I'm a self admitted fish. I attempted to play SSS at NL2 and run at -1.2BB/100 over 8k hands. I'm particularly proud of this hand although im curious to if I was right to check on flop after being the preflop agressor. Or should I contibet here. I personally feel checking was the best move, but then again I cant beat Micros :)

      i would've just contibet with an overpair.

      KK on the board means its less likely than someone else has a K.

      If i still have chips after the contibet, i'll consider folding to a strong raise.

      What are the suits of the cards btw?

      Man, in SSS you will pretty much never lay down AA.

      As Termi8r said, KK on the board make it less likely that someone else has a K, so just bet, bet, bet here. =D

      EDIT: I must be going insane here, I meant "as elhh82" said... oh boy..

      Well, I never heard Termi8r say that. But I'm pretty sure it's the sort of clever thing he would say :)

      Meanwhile, I agree with elhh82 and Dandycal: while you happened to make a fortunate laydown in this instance, you will definitely loose money if you make a habit of laying AA down playing SSS - especially on microlimits.

      However, you don't give your stack size, which might just about conceivably make folding AA acceptable if it's big (but then it's not SSS)...

      Please, otherwise you lose money in the long run :( ! It's the BEST hand in No limit Hold'em - It is your moneymaker!
