      hi Gerv

      Today i had classical case about me having good PP. this is where my fear comes from. i guess it's karma thing that i run into horrible flops. i need to see shrink.

      Everest - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      SB: $3.52
      BB: $3.21 43/0/45 30h
      UTG: $5.57
      UTG+1: $5.00
      MP: $4.86
      MP+1: $7.43
      Hero (CO): $1.97
      BTN: $6.09

      SB posts SB $0.03, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.08) Hero has K:heart: K:diamond:

      fold, fold, MP calls $0.05, fold, Hero raises to $0.22, fold, fold, BB calls $0.17, fold

      Flop: ($0.52, 2 players) Q:club: A:heart: Q:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.38, BB raises to $2.99 and is all-in

      this is so frustrating. when i have decent PP everyone folds preflop OR i run into such such........things.

      i feel like playing with open cards.

      On these flop's (paired/dry) you can CBet smaller.
      1/2 PSB in enough here and will safe you some bb's ;)
      After his raise you can safely fold as he seems passive with 43/0
      Villain has to be very aggro to start thinking about a call :)

      It is just pure variance mathwise people do not have hands to pay you off so there is nothing karma about it except that you think it is.

      Now the Flop cBet should indeed be smaller, I would bet 50%. If you check back this flop then you are playing open cards because people know you don't have an Ace

      Best regards,
