So! Unlikely as it may seem, three times yesterday (on each occasion quite early on in different tourneys), having 3xBB raised from early position, with AA, KK and then QQ I was called in mid or late positions. On each of these occasions, the flop came with two matching cards and one other card (4,4,J all off suit on one occasion when I had KK and then 7,7,K all off suit on another when I had AA). The subsequent turn and river cards were pretty meaningless cards 2 and 8 in the first hand and 3 and 9 in the second.
Both games took various paths to the river.
At the end of the hands the villain showed in the first instance J4, winning with 444JJ, and in the second instance the villain showed K7, winning with 777KK.
I was wondering how you may have played these hands with the information available.
KK with a flop of 4,4,J.
AA with a flop of 7,7,K.

With KK or AA I would have raised 4-5BB although you are in early position, but nobody can have a better hand than yours. Perhaps the K7 or J4 would have folded because who is playing K7 or J4 for 4-5BBs?!
If they are still in the game I would have checked on the flop to see what the others do. Depending on the villain's bet I would have called anyway, no raise. The Turn the same. If he bets again you should think about having a Set or something that is better than your two pairs...

re: Poker & Villain flopping unlikely Full House
With KK you had almost 88% equity pre flop and with AA almost 87% so you were in good. Maybe you need to adjust preflop betting too chase these hands out. It something I have struggled with in the lower stakes as well, some people just will pay too see the flop. Try to make it as expensive as possible to be drawn out on.
