Poker Hand Tonight

Big hand tonight that went way wrong for me…

I am first to act and am dealt pocket kings in a no limit Hold ’em game. I bet three times the big blind and position two calls the bet. Position thee raises nearly three times my bet so I announce to the table I will move in in an attempt to scare off any other players and isolate position three. The ploy works, no one else gives action and I move all in. Position two folds and position three calls my all in. I show my Kings and position three turns up AQ, so I am about a 7 to 3 favorite. The flop comes 656, making me nearly 9 to 1. The turn comes 6, making me better than 9 to 1. The river is the fourth 6, giving me four 6’s with a K kicker and him 4 sixes with an A.

Welcome to Poker, kids…
