      I wrote up on the other one :)

      Often in poker you do everything (well, alot of things) right and still lose. It is almost never a mistake to lose a stack with KK against AA; in fact, saving any of your stack at all with KK vs AA where you don't suck out is a noteworthy achievement. You can lose half a stack and still feel like you made a great decision.

      I would say fold it preflop (we are UTG and KQs is a bit crappy for UTG). if you raise it, raise 3-4 BB (6-8cents here).

      Otherwise, fine as played. Sometimes you get the money in there in front and it buggers off on the river; thats poker. Chin up - it all averages out in the end!

      Hello LoKKK,

      Add to full stack if playing BSS.

      Preflop: If you want to play this hand then raise it properly. 4xBB. Although overall I wouldn't raise that kind of hand from UTG and rather fold the hand in FR play.

      As played
      Flop: Seems to be fine to go for implied odds and Check/Call it. While it's anyways such a huge multiway pot we don't want to isolate yourselves against sets.
      Turn: Seems to be totally fine, I am going broke here as well.
      River: Just got unlucky. :(

      Best regards.

      hey guys thanx for replying,
      Now i know how to send in hands it will be great to get more hands reviewed , i agree totally with the raise 2.5 b's utg, and tbh, i dont even usually play any hands utg at all , usually if i do it will be AK AA or KK , and i usually do raise here 4 bb's , so it is good to go back over your hands and realsie where youv made mistakes, i think in this case why i raised 2.5 bb's was coz i thought i wasnt to sure wether to play it at all , so rather than raise 4 bb;s or limp, wich would have been stupid , i raised 2.5 , but yeah i think also i got a bit unluky on the river .! thanx again and hope to see yous soon , you too ,Jaissica
      :)
      thanx
      im not sure how to do this but i want an edit coz i forgot to ask somthing, on your previous answer veriz you mentioned to play BSS , well what iv been doing is playing MSS with usually about 80'bbs , do you think i should change and make it 100'bbs . or was that just coz this is the BSS section of pokerstrategy.?
