      Hi,

      After I double up, I have pocket King. I wish to know how much to open raise preflop. Is that also "4 Big Blinds + 1 Big Blind for every player who has already entered the hand"? Besides, how much to 3bet? As above, since I dont know how to play it. So, I just jam preflop to avoid difficult decision on post-flop. Thanks. :s_biggrin:

      You played the hand as you should have, well done. preflop 3.5 to 4bb opening raise is fine

      Hi,

      Either way is good pushing/raising. you could raise to 1.60 (3x OR + caller) which is still under half of your stack.

      Yes both ways is fine the only thing that matters is how Villain is likely to react on 3bets. if he only 4bets/fold then it doesnt matter. If he is also morelikely to call then raising smaller entices him to call with a lot of weaker hands

      Best regards,
