      Hi!
      I'm not sure whether this was just a bad beat or could I have anticipated something?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hey,

      nh imo, he could have FD, worse Kx. If the board was 9TK for example, then I think it's better to fold unless you have some kind of a read that he is capable of raising with weak made hand.

      Hello H4dron,

      Without stats I would shove this in as well as people on lower limits treat their toppairs no kickers mostly as the nuts as well so you are far ahead here most of the time

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      May i ask why the raise with KQo from UTG? Am i the only one who saw that?

      I'd put some different hand on the villain range. But yeah, most likely FD or TPGK, some would slowplay pf AK for deception and position.

      After the flop goes i'd go bet-broke aswell.
