      hey, just found that AK/QQ are losing me some money $22 in the last 8k hands! so i'll post a few of them.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.04(BB) Replayer
      SB ($5.08)
      BB ($5.57)
      UTG ($2.32)
      UTG+1 ($3.41)
      UTG+2 ($5.22)
      MP1 ($4)
      Hero ($4)
      CO ($3.49)
      BTN ($2)

      Dealt to Hero Q:spade: Q:diamond:

      fold, fold, UTG+2 calls $0.04, MP1 raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.50) J:heart: T:diamond: 9:diamond:

      MP1 bets $0.48, Hero calls $0.48

      TURN ($1.46) J:heart: T:diamond: 9:diamond: 6:heart:

      MP1 bets $0.92, Hero calls $0.92

      RIVER ($3.30) J:heart: T:diamond: 9:diamond: 6:heart: 3:diamond:

      MP1 checks, Hero checks

      Hero shows Q:spade: Q:diamond:
      (Pre 17%, Flop 23.4%, Turn 13.6%)

      MP1 shows K:heart: K:diamond:
      (Pre 83%, Flop 76.6%, Turn 86.4%)

      MP1 wins $3.14

      i usually actually 3bet preflop to $0.60 and then i would fold to 4bet. not entirely sure why i didn't play this way here but it led me to not knowing where i stood on the flop.

      question: say i 3bet preflop to $0.60 and villain flat called, how should i then play on the flop?

      Hello DrDunne,

      Well, the problem in this hand is that what kind of holdings do you beat on turn? There ain't gonna be many of them. Mostly just some draw-type of hands. If he is rather passive with CBetting then I might fold right there. Depending really on the opponent. Also we might easily even be against KQ/78/JJ/TT/99/JT/T9/overpairs and we only beat few combos.

      Well, there is no need to 3bet, if you feel that the guy has rather tight PFR then Calling is totally fine. :)

      Best regards.
