kk vs aq

By: burr87 @ 20:42 (EDT) / 252 / Comment ( 0 )
ok so iam in the sb with kk, the bb is very agressive when he has an ace. so i raise, its just me and the bb, to 250 , blinds 25 50. he min-reraises and minreraise him to the pot is around 1200 by now. hes pot commited and i have about 2300 behind. flop comes AKA. iam putting him on aq/aj so i raise half the pot, he goes all in (which i wanted him to do) and i call. turn is a 10 and river is a Q. i made the right play and got all his money in the pot and i was in great shape to double up. this isnt the only beat ive had where i play it right and lost to a hand where i was the overwhelming fav. should i have played this a different way?
