Hi Poker Pros,

How would you have played this hand?
Do you think you could have made the flush drawer fold?
Kindly critique and advice on how to handle these situations. I have made a good size bet (but after calculations..it seems like I have made a raise that is less than 2/3 of the pot...perhaps that was my mistake)...and yet....you'll see...Kindly let me know what you think...

\$0.1/\$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

Known players:

MP2 = (\$25.00)
MP3 = (\$5.05)
CO (Hero) = (\$8.90)
BU = (\$8.25)
SB = (\$36.50)
BB = (\$20.80)
UTG2 = (\$49.00)
MP1 = (\$11.35)

Preflop: Hero is CO with A, A.
4 folds, Hero raises to \$0.75, 2 folds, BB calls \$0.50.

Flop: (\$1.6) 5, J, T (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets \$1.00, BB calls \$1.00.

Turn: (\$3.6) 4 (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets \$2.00, BB calls \$2.00.

River: (\$7.6) 3 (2 players)
BB checks, Hero checks.

Final Pot: \$7.6.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Results follow:

BB shows a flush, ten high(7 8).
Hero shows a pair of aces(A A).

BB wins with a flush, ten high(7 8).

How should I play this next time?
Thanks alot....
