      Ahhh, back to playing SSS. Oh well, should mean I get my silver status back soon xD As long as I don't go broke before then. The hands...

      1)

      Full Tilt Poker, $0.05/$0.10 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 8 Players
      LeggoPoker.com - Hand History Converter

      UTG: $4.20
      UTG+1: $1.70
      MP1: $6.30
      MP2: $2.10
      CO: $13.20
      BTN: $4.65
      SB: $10.20
      Hero (BB): $2

      Pre-Flop: 5 K dealt to Hero (BB)
      4 folds, CO calls $0.10, BTN folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.30) K T 3 (3 Players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($0.30) J (3 Players)
      SB bets $0.30, 2 folds

      Results: $0.30 Pot ($0 Rake)
      SB mucked and WON $0.30 (+$0.20 NET)

      Looks like villain hit that J and is now defending from the flush draw, so I think a bad fold.

      1) nothing wrong with it but you can also try to bet/fold the flop

      2) against some people i would bet/fold the turn again but there is nothing wrong with your play (again)

      1) frzl is quite passive today :tongue: first hand is an obvious reraise for me. There are so many hands that he could bet with and we have approx. more then 70% equity against the most of them) On top of that, it is very likely that he wouldn`t bet here holding the made flush) and on top of top of that I am not sure that I would bet myself in this spot (if I were him).
      So I would reraise 3x and play it till the end.

      and flop seems fine to me as well (check). Don`t like betting with 5 kicker) given the limit our FE is quite uncertain)

      2) hmm, I guess I would check/push against agressive player and bet/fold against passive.

      Thanks :) I guess I should play my draws more aggressively.
