      Hey there,

      I think I played this hand really well, but let me know.

      MP2 is a huge loose fish who often raises big pre-flop and I suspected a re-raise or call. Despite his fishyness I didn't get value out of him in prior hands tonight because he would Fold when I had the goods. My problem was betting too high for him to call (not value betting). In this hand I was determined to get some money from him.

      I was concerned about the call from the small blind (I can't really remember what kind of player he was, tight I think) but I wanted MP2 to call so I could get paid.

      Was this good or too risky? I figured for sure that both players would fold if I pushed pre-flop (I just re-raised to pot size instead). I knew for sure that MP2 would have folded, I can't seem to remember the other fellow just now.

      Thanks!

      you played that hand standard. No need really to 4-bet bigger pf with aces, since you don´t mind if they call with worse hands. Against 3 players I´d bet flop 0.8$ and then would shove any turn card

      I'm always worried about isolation with AA/KK, wanting to play heads-up. But I guess having two callers still makes me a big favorite.

      Thanx
