      Hey Guys, I want some feedback on this one.

      I raise first in from CO with a good enough hand to steal. I get called by BU.
      I hit top pair and bet 3/4 pot. He raises me. I think he thinks I'm trying to steal / has a K/Q. I figure my J kicker is pretty good since he didn't reraise me preflop.

      I reraise him(actually misclicked, wanted to shove), maybe he has a flushdraw. So yeah, turns out he had KQ and hit a 2 pair.


      Should I have played it differently?

      Hello M1rCea,

      Preflop: While playing MSS I'd say that KJo from CO is kinda close, I would rather just fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: Depends a lot on the opponent. Either he is some kind of aggressive player and is capable of raising with some kind of draws then I would definitely as well go broke with my MSS stack. Although if more against passive opponent then would be likely better to fold since we beat only few combos, depends on his calling range.

      Best regards.
