      Hello crodady,

      Raise it up preflop, I don't like Limp/Raise at all! You are representing only KK/AA, often when I see such a play I even fold my QQ very easily. :) Also your 3bet is a bit too big, ~$0,60 should do it. Flop is pretty standard.

      Best regards.

      You mean you love to make bigger your raise with hands like KK/AA? :D Then it ain't. :) And actually I would raise it bigger against big stations but not against that tight, we have to extract value from them not make them fold. Such a bigger raise usually indicates to a very strong hand.

      Hehe, they are pretty standard NL10 moves, or those stakes. People tend to pick such lines very often. You will start to understand it sooner or later also and will understand their ranges and raises also, how they act in specific situations, what could they be having when they limp/raise and etc.
