I think Aces might be Too Strong to fold @ 2nl at this situation. Players at this level is going to have so many goof ball top pairs and think that its good. Although I like folding, I think calling its little bit more profitable in this situation at this limit.

I am assuming SB limped into BB was the first action. Then our hero raised to $0.1 from BB. Honestly, I think you played it fine, I mean you flop pretty monster. Even if your opponent has Aces(with no club), you are coin flip. I mean what are you gonna do, fold on the flop? I think you had a strong enough hand where you can play aggressively .

I think I would have played this way:
Hand #1: Check fold the flop. If you decide to call and hit King on the river, I would just check call.
Hand #2: I think I am checking raising with Q5 instead of calling. Its sort of cooler situation, top two pair vs middle set, so I would approach with if he has set so be it mind set.

Yes I agree with both RoleTide and CatorMan above, just put all the money in on the turn. But just like you said, if you are never laying down to any river card, I guess just calling can't be too wrong(given fact you already decided to not lay down your hand against him on the river).

The situation sucks... like you said, he is not likely doing this with lower flush, so what can we beat? He has 67, some goofy ass A6, 77. Sometimes 1010(but not likely i think he 3bets that hand many times out of BB). But on contrary, he could be being goofy making delay raise with his 89(straight) or trip 6's. Sometimes players at this level make that kind of play. It sucks but I think still Calling is right. But then again what the hell do I know.

Man, I don't think you can fold here, what are you gonna do, it was such shitty turn card, one of those hand you need to just sigh and move on. If you just give him credit for quads or 1010/JJ, I think you are playing too tight.

I think fold is fine here. I just hate the fact that your opponent increased his bet sizing on the turn to river, look at that bet on the turn he bets $1.5 into $5 pot then on the river he bombs $11 into $8 pot. You were the preflop raiser and hes still bombing into you, makes me to lean toward fold.

I like calling but how about just rejamming allin? Because like you said, his hand boils down to A8,A7, and very rarely sometimes 88,77(I think many times he 3bets these two hands from BB). But you beat all the other hands, and Your 66's full is so disguised here, your opponent might easily put you on Trip Aces and could be min clicking with flushes. Your 66's full was so down played, I think you are profitable by rejamming the river. What did you end up doing? and what did he have?

First of all nicely played. I think I would have done 2 things differently, see what you think. 1st, I agree with CatorMan's comment above, I think you should bet larger on the turn. More like $0.9 or even $1.1.
2nd thing I would have done differently, I would have called river. Just because I think my opponent is sometimes betting with Ax and think his pair of aces is good. I mean you just cannot give him credit for AK or flushes all the time. I think you should call more than you fold on the river.
