      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three of a kind, aces (Ac Qd)
      MP1 shows two pairs, aces and kings (Kd 4d)

      Hero wins with three of a kind, aces (Ac Qd)

      I realized on the flop that I have the best hand, because the only hands that could beat me there are KK and AK, and this hands were not in his range (because he only called from MP1). Than on the turn, the spade did scare me a little bit, but I'm taking my chances.

      It's fine, on the turn you're committed getting more than 3:1 if he has a flush you can still boat up, and sometimes you'll see the last A with a worse kicker or other random crap from bad players.

      I might raise a little less on the flop to give him the illusion of fold equity but i'm quite certain that this guy doesn't get that concept anyway so it wouldn't have mattered.

      Hope it helps.
