I was too nervous OTR since soo many hands beat mine. All players were pretty good, I'd previously marked all the players as TAG
I was too nervous OTR since soo many hands beat mine. All players were pretty good, I'd previously marked all the players as TAG but i wanted to see how I'd play at a higher level than rolled for. Basically i couldn't lose my entire buy in (which is very stupid).

Why are you not 3betting preflop? You should be raising it up to $2.00 preflop. The last thing you want is a QJT board texture where you have no idea where you're at. They could have the nut straight (AK), they could have sets or 2 pair hands. You could have avoided all of this by just re-raising to $2.00 preflop. Don't slow play monster hands.
Also, don't play with scared money. If you're not willing to get your stack in preflop with KK, then you shouldn't be playing with that money at all.

Raise preflop - 1.80$ or so.
As played, I go for a very thin small (5$-ish) value-bet on the river, because that's how I roll.
If you can't afford to lose your entire buy-in, then you shouldn't be playing these stakes.

Yeah, I'll bet you were.
All players were pretty good, I'd previously marked all the players as TAG but i wanted to see how I'd play at a higher level than rolled for. Basically i couldn't lose my entire buy in (which is very stupid).
This, right here, is you A Number One mistake. Scared money is lost money. If you will not or can not, lose a buy, then the game's too big for your 'roll. I also think this clouded your judgement. I have yet to see a Micro go off with all TAGs: it just doesn't happen.
If you're planning to play a trappy game with pocket cowboys in a likely HU pot, don't marry the damn things (Jd, Th, Qh) is a flop that just smashes a 3x opening range. Big Slick just got there, and (Ah,Kh) has the nuts and is drawing to nuttier nuts. (Q,J) (Q,T) (J,T) all outflopped those cowboys, and all the sets as well. Yeah, you have an OESD, but that is nothing to get excited about since it's likely at least one ace is out, and nines could also be in short supply here. (A,Q) (A,J) (A,T) have an over card, and a gutterball draw, they're not going anywhere. Even binking another king just might be massive trouble.
I wouldn't fool with that flop, especially when two opponents are in. If I got this far, I'd try to see the showdown for free. I'd figure the trap didn't work, and I'd be done with it.
That's the halibut when trapping: someone's sure to get trapped, but it may not be your opponent.
