Last week I went to play 1/2 in a brand new room to try it out and had a rough night since the beginning. I bought in for $100 and the table I sat down was playing like a 1/3 - 2/5ishh table. Players were opening for $15 - $20 bucks every hand and I couldn't get a table transfer because the room was so packed that they told me it would take a while.. Anyways I played a hand where I doubled up through an old Asian player that was playing pretty tight. Next hand right after that I woke up to AKo in late position and the button on my left had straddled for 4
SB folds BB calls, UTG (villain) makes it $15 folds around to me I decided to call. and the BTN & BB calls.
The flop comes; 8K9 rainbow
BB checks, UTG makes it $20 I raised to $50 immediately
folds around back to Villain and he ships it for $250ish
I tank for about a minute and make the go all in since he got me covered.
Turn brings a 7 and River was a 2.
Villain flips over K7o for 2 pair......
What do you think I did wrong playing this hand ??? Would you fold top pair with a good kicker on that board ?
I think I should've raised him pre flop but I knew he was going to end up calling since he already put in a raise and was the same player I doubled up through a hand ago...

When I play online since I have 4-6 tables normally I won't get bored even if I go card dead but when I'm playing live poker I've noticed that I start playing cards that you normally shouldn't play and start making mistakes when I'm 2-3 hours into a session. Do you guys have any tips or any advice when going card dead playing live? I'll appreciate it. I've been playing more online poker the past month and I can totally tell that when I'm playing live after I play one of those hands that end up getting you in tough spots I asked my self what the hell I'm I doing... and I normally just finish the session and go home. I would like to start playing longer sessions but I'm afraid I will just get out of the mind set after a few hours in.

Today I was playing 1/2 nl and I got into 2 situation that were similar but with different cards... The first one I was holding KQo on the button and raised to 6, folds around to bb that has been playing tight and he raised to 10. I think for a bit and called... I flopped the nuts flop came ATJ rainbow BB bets 20 I raised to 45 he shipped it all in for $110 I snap called he showed A4s... turn card was 4 and the river was a 4 as well... How would've you played this hand ?? Did I messed up on something ???
Second situation after doubling up 25 min after that hand. I picked up 7's on the button and flat called a raised to 10 that the lady on mp2 put, big blinds flats as well. The flop came A7T two hearts. bb checks lady bets 20 I raised 45 bb folds she moved all in for another 75 bucks I believed. I went into the tank for about 2 and half minutes and called. flop was a 2 and river another T that gave her 10 full of aces.... After this hand I walked away.... Any advice or tips on this 2 situations ?? I would appreciate it.
