      Is playing like this good? I was playing that table for about 30min and I thought people think I'm a rock because I play very few hands. Also Did I do right to call the all-in at flop?

      Hello adsefghijk,

      Preflop: The limp is pretty horrible, raise it up!

      As played
      Postflop: And there is no way I am going to call it unless I really know the opponent and even then I'd just fold it. We haven't put like anything into the pot have to make so big Call like near full stack. Therefore fold.

      Best regards.

      Well, every time I get something like AA, KK, QQ and raise preflop, everybody just folds, probably because they think I'm a rock. So you would suggest raising preflop and just winning 1.5bb?

      Limping is like 10x worse there, like never do limp even if you have such a reason that everyone fold. It would be even worse if your KK will be cracked. And yes, should be at least happy with winning the blinds, at least didn't get cracked.
