      Up to now BU has been playing extremely loose / passive. (Limp / calling pre flop ~ 50% and raising / 3betting 0%) So I guess the 3B is a strong hand, or some kind of "stop raising me all the time" reaction. Either way I'm not folding 66 with the given odds.


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $8.52
      SB (Hero):
      $5.14
      BB:
      $5.75
      MP3:
      $5.56
      CO:
      $7.35


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 6, 6.
      2 folds, BU calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.27, BB folds, BU raises to $0.55, Hero calls $0.28.

      Flop: ($1.15) 6, K, 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($1.15) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.69, BU raises to $1.38, Hero raises to $4.59, BU calls $3.21.

      River: ($10.33) 7 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $10.33.

      Results follow:

      BU shows a full-house, kings full of sevens(Kh Kd).
      Hero shows a full-house, sixes full of sevens(6c 6h).

      BU wins with a full-house, kings full of sevens(Kh Kd).

      Hi StaringAtGoats,

      you played your hand really fine. There can be an argument just for limping, but if you feel comfortable playing oop, then raise pf is also fine. Also you have to call his 3-bet giving the odds.
      I would also go c/r on dry Kxx board and then bet/shove turn is also fine.
      He sometimes has there slowplayed KK, but he can also play the same way AA/AK, so bet/shove on the turn is standard play.

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      I'd add as well that you can still bet it like $0,80+ on turn and a bit bigger and I wont fold it either.

      Best regards.
