      This is why I do not agree with Frzl. Yes it is a one off result but there is no way in the long run this move is profitable.

      Playing SSS stack was $4.65 and this goose thought his 2 kicker was good.

      on this flop i would NOT cont bet, since the overcards are MUCH more likely to have hit the opponent then a Q and a 9. It is very important to understand what flops you go all in on, and what flops not to.

      There is no logic in that because the difference in hitting A or K as opposed to a Q or 9 with an under pair would be so negligible that it wouldn't change the theory of a C bet or a c/f

      and that is not true. Not an argument against it, it's simply not true. High cards are better then low cards, so they are more likely to be played.

      well) because of our stack size (20BB) we are cbetting on any flop) you have huge fold equity here against any non-A or K hands. I would say on the higher limits you have a fold equity even against most of the A hands...

      Besides, most of the strong A and K hands would reraise you pre-flop, so there is a big chance that you are up against pockets. So you can be even ahead or have a very solid FE, if you are actually behind (against 99, TT)

      against the range 22-TT, AQs-ATs, KQs, AQo-ATo, KQo you have 41.5% of equity, while you need to have 33%.

      I don`t like statements like "there is no way..." that are based on human instincts) If you are that sure, please show us the facts)
