    Unsuited AK, suited KT of hearts, A3 for wheel draw...not a tremendously strong starting hand, but nothing worth raising right ?

    *** FLOP *** [3 K A]
    Buck_slayer30 checks
    CallifyouDare bets $0.50
    Corv1 calls $0.50
    mattlbc6896 calls $0.50
    Fischeuner82 folds
    Buck_slayer30 calls $0.50

    Well, I flop 3 pairs (lol) so I guess I can't just check here. I'm OOP but I'm betting pot in order to thin the field.
    If I get called, I'm thinking straight draws.
    If I get raised, I'm thinking sets, and I'm probably laying it down depending on the amount of raise.

    I don't really like it when I see 3 callers but oh well, let's see the turn

    *** TURN *** [3 K A] [5]
    Buck_slayer30 checks
    CallifyouDare bets $2.50
    Corv1 calls $2.50
    mattlbc6896 calls $2.50
    Buck_slayer30 calls $2.50

    Well, the current nuts is 24xx and with this many callers on the flop it's still a possibility (especially with no raise PF). I'm confident a 24xx kind of hand isn't here but I'm willing to try to thin further the field with my nut flush draws...

    When everyone calls, I'm thinking at least one of them is slow playing a set....maybe a non-nut flush draw but less likely IMO.

    *** RIVER *** [3 K A 5] [K]

    Buck_slayer30 checks
    CallifyouDare bets $2.56, and is all in
    Corv1 folds
    mattlbc6896 calls $2.56
    Buck_slayer30 folds

    When that river comes out, the only hand that beats me is AAxx. That's still a possibility as the hand was played but considering what's already in the pot and what I have left, I can't really do anything here but push. If someone has AAxx well, good job (though I'm inclined to think AAxx should have raised the turn).

    *** SHOW DOWN ***
    CallifyouDare shows [A 3 K T] a full house, Kings full of Aces
    mattlbc6896 mucks
    CallifyouDare wins the pot ($16.45) with a full house, Kings full of Aces

    *** SUMMARY ***
    Total pot $17.62 | Rake $1.17
    Board: [3 K A 5 Ks]
    Seat 1: Fischeuner82 (button) folded on the Flop
    Seat 2: Buck_slayer30 (small blind) folded on the River
    Seat 3: CallifyouDare (big blind) showed [A 3 K T] and won ($16.45) with a full house, Kings full of Aces
    Seat 4: xROGIx didn't bet (folded)
    Seat 5: Corv1 folded on the River
    Seat 6: mattlbc6896 mucked [9 3 3 Q] - a full house, Threes full of Kings

    I got one caller out of three followers which is an okay result considering the strength of my hand on the river. My short stack on the river may have been one factor to have him make that call.

    So, I'm a little bit surprised to see he had bottom set from the flop which was actually beating me until the river came down. Do you think there's a moment where I should be aware of it ? How would you have played it ?
