comment Did I play this correctly? $1-2 NL Holdem
Shove the turn, not river. This would be an abysmal river to shove.

Frankly, I don't understand yours. If you really knew one had a King on the turn you should be shoving because $1/$2 players find it really difficult to fold trips, especially fish. It would be a slight overbet but not that much, around $142 or so into about $114. The king would have sucked out on this particular river, but you're ahead on a vast majority of rivers and want to get in more money sooner.

comment NL100: 2-Pair In 4-Way Pot Facing OOP Lead @ Wet Flop
I think a really small bet (like $10) is much more likely to induce a bluff-raise OTR than a size greater than half pot. Either way, I don't give most 100nl regs credit for that sort of move so I would fold and take a note. And honestly if someone does make that sort of move it is likely to be unbalanced which would allow us to exploit the villain in the future.

comment Could I have won more money with top set on the flop?
I'm not worried about that on this dry of a board. Given your stack size he shouldn't really play differently vs a minraise (i.e. a raise to $100) or a shove from you. Getting those other players to call is a great thing for you, because they'll often be hopelessly behind with a small amount of money behind. Finally, even in the worst-case scenario when you get it in bad OTT (which is mighty rare) you still have outs.

comment How do you play AQ or AK (off or suited) on $1/$2 Live?
You mean 32%? I think pre is on the big side but it depends on the make up of the rest of the table - if they're all willing to call $12 with worse Ax hands then it's quite fine to raise that much if not more. Flop sizing is fine. OTT she has $68 left and the pot is $64 so I think I like betting something small like $22 with the intention of calling a shove or shoving blank rivers.

comment $1/$2 Live - Bottom set on flop and facing 3bet
Just because they call doesn't mean that "you get trapped." In fact, you want them to call because your bet is clearly a value bet (many hands that are hopelessly behind yours will call, and even the ones that are drawing will still call). If you are confident that villain will bet then a c/r is fine - but you better be happy getting it in versus a 3bet in that scenario or you are lighting money on fire.
