This was at about 1:30AM last night, 7 handed $1/$3 game, everyone at the table looked visibly tired and people were playing very passive preflop. These three hands happened literally back-to-back-to-back. I started the first hand with just about 300bb.
UTG fold, UTG+1 folds, MP calls, LP calls, BTN calls, I raised $15 /w AT in SB, BB folds, UTG fold, MP calls $15, LP fold, BTN fold, SB fold
Flop: 442 (pot $35)
I bet $18, LP calls $18
Turn: A (pot $69)
I bet $22, LP calls $22
River: A (pot $143)
I bet $50, LP raised to $150, I call $100
LP tables 44 for quads, final pot $443
Very next hand:
UTG calls, UTG+1 folds, MP calls, LP calls, I raised $15 OTB with AK, SB folds, BB folds, UTG calls $15, MP calls $15, LP folds
Flop: KK9 (pot $43)
UTG checks, MP checks, I bet $31, UTG folds, MP calls $31
Turn: 2 (pot $104)
MP checks, I bet $60, MP calls $60
River: 3 (pot: $224)
MP checks, I bet $120, MP calls $120
MP tables TJ for a flush; final pot $464
Very next hand (I have ~$450 at this point)
UTG folds, UTG+1 calls, MP raises $15, I raise $45 in LP with AA, BTN fold, SB fold, BB fold, UTG+1 fold, MP calls $30
Flop: K72 (pot $91)

Turn: 7 (pot $221)

River: 7 (pot $471)
MP checks, I go all-in for $215, Villain calls $215
Villain tables KK, final pot $901
The first hand was a little confusing. I cbet the flop because I think I'm ahead of villain's preflop ck/call range and could even called called once by overs or a weaker ace and there are a lot of good cards to 2-barrel if he has a PP. When I hit my ace, it's a clear value bet. When another ace comes, I bet and I thought villain said 'call', but he must have said raise. Normally I might consider re-raising, but my hearing him wrong really threw me off and I just auto-called.
Second hand, I thought I was just going for three easy streets of value with top trips, didn't expect villain to call me down with an inside straight and backdoor hearts. Hooray value-owning!
Third hand was brutal. In my mind, it was value bets all day. Villain easily has AK here, maybe even KQ or KJ. By the river, he's never folding Kx so I expected, again, to get paid. Just brutally value owned myself three straight hands.
