      If u haven't seen KK example, see it first.
      Here... I adjusted my play to opponent. I think vs this kind of opponent my JJ is a nuts.
      I didn't have tilt after KK example but I think that I could have folded. He could have done this play with any hand maybe even TPTK...
      BTW. I've been playing on NL10 extremely good. So far I've made 2 mistakes which u saw... donate with AK example and call with QQ. What I noticed... those players play very strange poker. I don't understand it.
      This is my second attempt to NL10. First finished with -12BI result where I had a lot of bad beat and made mistakes. But now, I've improved my game since last time on NL10 and I'm again on minus. So far -3BI after only 2.500 hands. I don't know what to do...

      Hello BGawli,

      You can't really do much since 2,5k hands is pretty much nothing in poker. :( Being down -3BIs is very standard. Doesn't mean that you can't beat it but could easily mean that you just need to play more hands to get your line into right spot.

      But about the hand I don't really see him playing sets this way so basically I'd Call here down as well. He may easily do that with FD/TP or whatsoever hands. Why should he over-bet with set?

      Best regards.
