So I made a random late night visit to the casino by my house with a friend sunday night and it probably cost me some amount of skill that I claim to have. Anyways:
Pre-Flop I raise to $27 in late position with AQoff.
Player directly to my left raises it to $101.
Player to his left(on the button) calls the re-raise.
Comes back to me and I make the call with about $40 left.
Flop: Q, 4, 4
Obviously I'm pushing.
Both players call
Turn and River: 9, 9
I turn over my AQoff expecting to see someones AK or KK BUT instead one player mucks and the player on the button turns over 2,4off!!!!!!!!!!
Player on the button calls a $101 pre-flop after there was a raise and a RE-RAISE!
Any thoughts on this to help me understand how and why this happened/happens will be appreciated.

In my opinion you completely butchered this hand. I know live games play larger, but if you only have ~140 to start the hand you should be folding to the reraise or shoving yourself depending on what you think of his reraise range.
As for the player that had 24, don't worry about it. These are the people that you make your money from. A bad play still works out some % of the time, just keep that in mind.

The player on the button is really bad and doesnt know how to play poker, he just wants to gamble, is how/why this happened. Poker has variance. As far as preflop goes it doesnt really matter too much if you shove pre or call and shove it on the flop since the last $40 wont effect any decison pre, however the way you played it by calling pre and shoving any flop can actually be better if you think an opponent would actually fold to such a small bet on the flop, after committing alot of money pre, if they miss the board.

Nothing to do here... You get a very nice flop... the shove is ok...
It was a pain that the Btn had 42... dont care about it...

Thanks for the inputs. I think I sort of agree with the butchering the hand idea. It was a late night "gambling" session thats for sure and there was a point in my thought proccess that made me just say F it and commit my stack with AQ.
In the end I would have won in the btn wasn't in the hand.. but I would have been lucky.
