      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      MP3 posts deadblind, 3 folds, MP3 checks, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.10, SB calls $0.09, BB calls $0.08, MP3 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.4) Q, 9, 7 (4 players)

      River: ($3.79) 8 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $3.79.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of kings(K K).
      SB shows a pair of aces(A A).

      SB wins with a pair of aces(A A).

      should have bet full pot on flop for sure, (i put him all in because he had 0.16 more than pot bet and i would be pot commited anyway).

      I assumed that J8 would be very rare but then there could be two-pair somewhere but they would raise because the table i was at was competant.

      The question is weather i should have done a normal bet, not pot size, to see if i would be raised or called and then shove river if called? (i think i did everything right, except the flop bet, because i needed protection and would have the best hand most of the time)

      Thanks :)

      P.S Hmm but then could i really fold to a raise here on the turn? i don't think so
