AA on trip board. Anyway to get away from this?

Atlantic City. Live $5/10 and I had about $1500 I front. In MP raised to $75 with AA after a few limpers got 1 caller.

Flop comes TTT. I checked as did he. Turn was K, I bet $125 and he called (I figured he had the K), river was a 4, I bet $300, he thinks… goes all in, I call and he shows KT… F ME! Flopped quads..

Can I put him on a T here???


Playing Full Tilt FTOPS #6, $200 short handed. Made some great bluffs, got some great cards.. had great table image, allowed me to steal a ton. 2,555 entered, top 306 make the money.
I have $19K chips and am about 140th with just over 400+ left.
While in the SB, I have raised the BB 3 or 4 times out of 6-7 times, but had big hands everytime. AT, AK, AK, QQ. So I am sure he is getting annoyed. He has me covered and has $27K chips.

So... I get QQ in the SB and everyone folds around to me (blinds are 250/500) so I make it 1,800 (wanted to go a little bigger than 3x raise to maybe have him think I am stealing, and he will re-raise me with a worse hand)

He just calls.

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Podiman [Qd Qc]
optimistprime folds
Rip_AKo folds
sb129397 folds
Rossoblu folds
Podiman raises to 1,800
TheStein calls 1,300

At this point, I know I have the best hand, but praying no A or K on the flop. As long as there is no A or K, I am pushing. So the flop comes...

*** FLOP *** [Tc 5h Qh]

FLOPPED TOP SET!!!! I decide to wait about 10 seconds and check. I know there are 2 hearts but, he is pretty agressive and I think he will fire and I can check-raise him and get some extra $$$.

Podiman checks
TheStein bets 2,200
Podiman raises to 5,200
TheStein has 15 seconds left to act

Worked exactly as I planned it. But then he takes a long time to decide what to do... What could he have? Does he think I am on a total bluff and can steal?

TheStein raises to 25,369, and is all in
Podiman calls 12,018, and is all in
TheStein shows [5c 5s]
Podiman shows [Qd Qc]
Uncalled bet of 8,151 returned to TheStein

Can it get any better than this??? Set over Set! This will take me to $38K and up to about 25th place.

*** TURN *** [Tc 5h Qh] [Ah]

Yeah, bring it!

*** RIVER *** [Tc 5h Qh Ah] [5d]
TheStein shows four of a kind, Fives
Podiman shows a full house, Queens full of Fives
TheStein wins the pot (38,336) with four of a kind, Fives
Podiman: OMG
Podiman stands up

So sick... Was 4% to win on the flop and 2.2% on the turn to hit his one outer.
I hate online poker. And you thought I was emailing you a good hand huh?
