I have had pocket aces cracked on four occasions over the past two days playing 6 handed micro stakes NL game. It just happens to be that this has occurred on the last four times I have pocket aces.

I have bet heavily each time hence I have lost my stack on each occasion but I would be interested in some feedback as to how I can play these hands better. The last time I have included below and will put the same in the hand analysis part of the forum.

Table 'Altona VII' 6-max Seat #1 is the button
Seat 1: JDubyaTas ($9.28 in chips)
Seat 2: Dav1dos ($11.98 in chips)
Seat 3: TIOLAVARA67 ($4 in chips)
Seat 4: VAVASTER ($28.11 in chips)
Seat 5: BadBoy3030 ($19.24 in chips)
Seat 6: IgorJan ($10 in chips)
Dav1dos: posts small blind $0.05
TIOLAVARA67: posts big blind $0.10
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to JDubyaTas [Ah As]
VAVASTER: calls $0.10
BadBoy3030: raises $0.30 to $0.40
IgorJan: folds
JDubyaTas: raises $1.10 to $1.50
Dav1dos: folds
TIOLAVARA67: folds
VAVASTER: folds
BadBoy3030: calls $1.10
*** FLOP *** [Kh Th 7s]
BadBoy3030: checks
JDubyaTas: bets $3.09
BadBoy3030: calls $3.09
*** TURN *** [Kh Th 7s] [7h]
BadBoy3030: checks
JDubyaTas: bets $4.69 and is all-in
BadBoy3030: calls $4.69
*** RIVER *** [Kh Th 7s 7h] [8c]
*** SHOW DOWN ***
BadBoy3030: shows [Td Tc] (a full house, Tens full of Sevens)
JDubyaTas: shows [Ah As] (two pair, Aces and Sevens)
BadBoy3030 collected $17.90 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot $18.81 | Rake $0.91
Board [Kh Th 7s 7h 8c]
Seat 1: JDubyaTas (button) showed [Ah As] and lost with two pair, Aces and Sevens
Seat 2: Dav1dos (small blind) folded before Flop
Seat 3: TIOLAVARA67 (big blind) folded before Flop
Seat 4: VAVASTER folded before Flop
Seat 5: BadBoy3030 showed [Td Tc] and won ($17.90) with a full house, Tens full of Sevens
Seat 6: IgorJan folded before Flop (didn't bet)

Why are you leading into him? It reads that you are on the button.

Don't overplay your topsets. The flop is where you went wrong, the bet was too big. I would've cbet 2.10 as the board is wet.

I don't think you could've got away from this hand, it was a case of needing to bet every street and getting sucked out.

Id never get my stack in without a set or more, unless the villain was very fishy.

Overpair (stand corrected).

According to the HH, our hero is on the button, why is he betting first on the flop?
