what more can you ask for ? to get more out of it someone else has to have a hand or want you to think so , can't believe you got that much , good milk imo .

It's tough to get value when you have the board crippled like that. You basically got him to call two half-pot-sized bets with Ace high, so the fact that you got any chips from him is great. You got really unlucky in that he had a big hand that completely missed the big cards (K and Q) on the flop/turn. When somebody hits a monster like this, they feel like anything short of doubling up was a waste, but like I said, you probably got more value than you should have, so well played.

I agree, usually people will fold on your initial bet. So the fact that u got called twice is an achievement in it's self.

There's really no way to approach these without being results oriented so just be happy you got that much out of him.

Also regardless of what he has it's probably right to check the flop since there's a good chance it hit him. You've reallyy got to bet behind him on the turn (like you did) so that's fine. And naturally you value bet the river beautifully :)

as the others said you got what you could. you flopped the stone cold nuts and unless he catches a big hand you aren't going to be getting much more.

Here is what I would have done, bet the flop not to much, then check the turn, then bet the river a bit bigger.

What this is telling him that you are bluffing and are just trying to steal the pot, he didn't hit anything but maybe he would have still called thinking he had the best hand.

Of course it is always hard to get a lot money out of 4 of a kind, but that would have been my approach.

:eek: at opponent calling on the river with AJ

Ordinarily there wouldn't be much more value to be extracted from a hand like this. In this particular case... well, we're up against someone who calls the river with just ace-high, so maybe they could've called a bigger bet. But there's no way of knowing that.
