Hero bets $13, UTG calls $13
I think I bet too light here - ~half pot.  However, I was thinking that there would be quite a few hands which would call - mainly JJ, 76, 56, etc.  Also, JJ likely makes the call.  I cannot believe that he's checking a rivered trips because it's too easy for me to check behind.  As it turns out, this was the "perfect" bet size; I don't think he's ever calling AK in this spot without a small-ish bet like what I put out.  I was actually very surprised to see a call  here.

Final Pot: $54.75
UTG mucks Ac Kc
Hero shows Qh Qs (two pair, Queens and Tens)

  1. Before peeking, I was thinking bet small to eek out some value from smaller pairs - I like your bet size.

    Strange way to play AK
