      Villain is 12/10

      Should i play more aggressive on flop here? Because i kinda wanted draws to call.
      On turn I didn't want to scare overpairs away/make him reraise with trips hence the weak bet.
      On river it seems that he hit his KK

      With a set in a mw pot I am def raising it up on flop, strong draws are calling etiher way caus of the implieds or even shoving.

      As playes I would bet more turn and call river. Reasoning mainly because he is never going for pot control before protection with KK on a fd board.

      But I guess you know the opponent more than I do, so one can find a fold there too - it is not a wrong option.

      hope it helps

      I think you misplayed your hand on every street even against that taggish guy.
      Flop: Just raise it up multiway to create a pot.
      Turn: Bet 2/3 pot.
      River: Shove yourself.

      If he has JJ, KJ or KK it's just a cooler.
      But I'm certainly not folding my FH when villain can play AJ that way, although it looks like KK...

      Best regards,

      it looks like KK but how would you feel if player shows you on the river ATdd or smt that can´t really call river but and then decides to turn into bluff, like 88 and ofcourse he can also hold there 22.
      Since there are 3 players who would act behind you I think I would like to raise flop to protect my hand and get value from worse hands. You can bet a little bigger on the turn and river and river is b/c. If he really has there KK then just a cooler
