      Push? Bet 2/3? I seem to loose a lot of money that way, maybe I shouldn't always contibet?

      Do you follow basic SSS rules while contibeting or is there something beyond that?

      I have to admit on such a board I check behind here sometimes, since UTG could hold a pocket, which he will not fold. With to clubs on the board or an Gutshot I would also push.

      What does it mean sometimes? Try to define it, please.

      As I said, it's life and death to me now as I'm downswinging pretty badly...

      Cheking behind only makes sense if we know that our opponent holds PP and will NEVER fold it. Even though, there is quite a high chance that he is holding PP, checking here is questionable. In the long run our fold equity will compensate for equity shortage. So even if we can make more optimal play in some spots (checking behind), it is just too much of thinking and doesn't wort it in terms of EV. So I would simply push, because its easy :D

      However, you can check behind here with worse overcards, like KQ, AJ, if you don`t have any additional outs (gutshot, paired board+backdoor)

      I may try to check behind KQ as it likes to be beaten by any ace if I have any direct reads about my oponent. But I will remember it's questionable.
