      I was playing really tight, raised with KK got a loose call, so obviously I should have folded them and when was I supposed to? I just got attached to my hand and thought "Oh well, hope for the best!" This is one of my problem, getting attached to my hands and shoving and hoping for the best :f_biggrin:

      Hello Krishjanis,

      It's really hard to make a fold here. While he may easily have worse PPs and even draws sometimes. For the reason that he only has ~50BB left then I don't think that I'd find a fold here. Most likely I would go broke here as well.

      Best regards.
