      Well played, you just ran into a suckout. Your opponent had 2 outs, a 4 % chance to win, variance just hit you. Keep making the same decisions, they will pay off in the long run. umbup:umbup:umbup:

        hi there aj,
        preflop 3x textbook

        flop_ you checked allowed the guy to bet then only called,

        thats what cost you the hand m8t checking the set then only calling, the opp may have put you on a hand like aq,and thought his pp 4s were good,IN the finish yes he was lucky and thats the danger in being trappy.

        hope this helps

          Hi AJEI,

          Sounds like you know the answer . As a 95% favourite on the turn you get your money in, what else is there to say.

          I think you played the hand perfect. At 100/200 level I may be opening 2.5x rather than 3x. But UTG and a hand as strong as AKs 3x is good.

          Normally not a fan of slow playing, but this is the perfect example of a time to do it. You are so far ahead on the flop this is a great way to try and extract some value or let him catch a turn card that gets him in trouble. On the turn he's probably commited and just calling here he's pretty unlikely to fire a 3rd time. So just get it in, get some value or fold out his equity and win a nice pot.

          Just a sick sick river my friend.
