      Hi all, my first post here in the samples board and probably not my last, reading here everyday and don`t know why i never post stuff myself :) So hard to find a Titan Poker converter if one hasn`t got PokerTracker *g*

      Reason i`m asking, in the few rounds before the UTG-Player was pretty tight. Since i didn`t hit on the Flop i thought instead of going all-in (because stack = smaller than pot according to strategy) i`d check / fold if bet occurs. Lucky I did, but was it the right thing at the time? Cheers

      Oh yes of course :D Just looked at my scribbled notes and it says:

      Flopplay - Trash: 2+ opponents left Check / Fold

      Totally missed it, hardly ever use the notes now because most is in the good old head *g* Funny, basically played as i thought was most situated at the time. Good then :) Did mix up the All-In with stack = smaller than pot though, thats refering to 1 opponent, still was right decision. Thanks for your time!

      oop i like to raise 4bb+1bb per limper + 1bb for bad position. i would just push preflop after 3 limpers.

      Pushing prelfop is also an option here, since pocket pairs up to TT you have a coinflip and you also might be able to make better hands fold like AQ or pocket pairs.
      As played, nice hand. :)

      I wouldn`t bother with +1BB for bad position, since you need to master postflop first.

      Everything else was explained.
