comment How much must Hero bet for Villain to fold?
I've reworded the second question to better describe my intention. I understand that I want villain to bet on the flop. I'm more curious about how much money it would take for someone to lay down that hand.

comment 1/2 NL: Call this villain's all-in with top pair, ace kicker?
I concur that a preflop re-raise, on my part, was in order. As to calling the all-in, I want to clarify that I didn't assume he was fish because he came from the online world. I observed that he was playing 3-4 hands per orbit and relying on aggressive betting in a passive environment to take down pots. Thus, I wasn't prepared to assume his raises just meant strong hands. The fact that his typical raise was $2 and K9d is what made him jump to a $13 raise indicates some over-valuing IMO. Having said that, I concur his all-in should have been a sign that he was strong.

I was on the button; I updated the question in the pre-flop section to indicate our table positions.

comment Should I have went all-in with KK on this flop?
I think your analysis here is spot on, particularly the risk of putting in 1/3 of my stack pre-flop.

I appreciate all the feedback. I've updated the question with an epilogue that reveals what happened.

comment 200nl - Flop top two on wet board and get squeezed OOP deep
@SoboLAN Why don't you consider a straight a possibility for UTG+1? I've seen players re-raise big when flopping a straight on a flush draw board, since they're afraid of an opponent hitting the third spade.

comment NL100: 2-Pair In 4-Way Pot Facing OOP Lead @ Wet Flop
I don't see CO and BTN being in the hand as a problem; CO didn't even raise 3x the big blind pre-flop. Furthermore, with a flop like this, I'd want to thin out my opponents as much as possible. Can you clarify why you think raising here is a problem with CO and BTN remaining?

comment Could I have won more money with top set on the flop?
Considering I have two other opponents still in the hand at the time I need to choose call or raise, does that matter or do you feel the strength of my hand outweights the risks of 1 or 2 other players remaining?

comment Could I have won more money with top set on the flop?
Two questions: 1. Silversana recommends calling here while you recommend raising. I feel like raising is better since two other players remain and either may call if they're on a straight draw. Is isolating the raising opponent wiser than keeping it a multi-way pot? 2. If an ace, king, queen, or jack hit the turn, does that change anything or do I just need to hope his overpair doesn't match the turn card?

comment Should I call opponent's flop re-raise with trips?
Re-raising all-in is an interesting idea and one that I didn't consider in-hand. First, I was mostly taken aback by the villain's re-raise since I didn't expect it. Second, I was thinking a lot about my experiences where big raises mean big hands in small stacks NLHE. Thus, the re-raise scared me, as it forced me to re-evaluate his hand range. So, while I could push there, it seemed likely he'd just call, whereas calling the villain's raise allowed me to limit my risk a bit (although admittedly, if I'm calling $160, I'm probably going all in on the turn anyway).

comment Should I call opponent's flop re-raise with trips?
For some background, I chose $60 because I wanted to control the pot size and it was 3x the villain's bet. A couple other points: 1. I don't think I want to see another card in this situation. My trips are good right now and I feel like my opponent is more likely to improve than I am, as more cards hit. Thus, a bigger raise is more likely to induce a fold. 2. But, let's say I raise to $110. Given my opponent's stack, is he more likely to push all-in? If he does push, do I really want to call? Does limiting the raise to $60 reign-in my opponent's reraise range?

I updated the hidden text to make my action more explicit.
