When playing online at full tilt, I often encounter the following situation. I raise with 2 high cards such as AK, AQ. One person calls, and the flop comes something like A99, with me having top pair and the board pairing. I lose so much on these pots because it seems like the other player always has trips. For example, I was playing today and someone minraised preflop, so I reraised with AQ suited. He called and the flop came Q88. He came out with a raise. Since he was a very aggressive player, I reraised. He went all in. I called, and he had 98 offsuit. I just didnt think he had an 8 there after calling my reraise and betting the flop. I can usually get away from it if the two pairing cards are high, but when they are low, its hard to put anyone on trips. Does anyone have any tips to share on how to play these hands properly and be able to get away from the hand if you're beat?
