Weird spot here right away. I elected to just call, I think JJ is just one of the worst hands involved the action being MP raise and CO 3beting. Or should i raise here? I think at best i'm going 50/50 with AK and all other hands QQ+ beat me. Snowie would fold this.
Flop ($5.20) 3 J K
SB checks, Hero checks, CO bets $2.24, SB folds, Hero calls $2.24
Well, sweet spot here. I know this guy is tight, specially after the pre flop action, I'm pretty sure he had a K or AA. I c/c but snowie points out this as a mistake, giving more ev to a bet. But wouldn't it be too obvious to be leading here into 2 people? I of course he is calling, but i'm not sure i can get the money in on later streets. And as far as Villain goes, shouldn't he be checking this for pot control?
Turn ($9.68) 3 J K K
Hero checks, CO bets $3.70, Hero raises to $7.40, CO calls $3.70
Now Villain hits trips. Here I'm a bit lost. You have trips but what am I paying? Or raising with? I'd never call pre with Q10h or a worst K. So he's either chopping with some other AK or loosing to a full house imop. I chose to min3bet here cause it's provocative, bluffy and build the pot. Anyways, i think it's a call, but on the river you should be able to find a fold right? Villain had AK btw.
River ($24.48) 3 J K K 4
Hero bets $20.67 and is all in, CO calls $20.67
Final Pot BB wins and shows a full house, Jacks full of Kings.
CO lost and shows three of a kind, Kings.
BB wins $64.32
Rake is $1.50
