      Hi, I want to show a few tricky KQ hands,low stakes,NL holdem and want your evaluation.
      Hand 1 NL Holdem 0,05/0,1;full ring;
      Chip stacks:
      UTG:2.8$
      UTG+1:4.5$
      UTG+2:1.5$
      MP1: 4.00$
      MP2: 2.55$
      MP3:1.25$
      CO:8.45$
      Button: 6.85$
      SB: 8.45$
      BB: 1.88$(Hero)
      Preflop: (10 players) Hero is BB with K :spade: ,Q :heart:
      4 folds,MP2 calls 0.1$, 3 folds,SB completes 0.05$, Hero-BB raises 0.6$, MP2 folds, SB calls 0.6$.

      Flop: K :diamond: 6 :diamond: 2 :heart: (t1.5$, 2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets t 1.18$-all in, SB calls t 1.18$.

      Turn: 5 :heart: (t 3.96$, 2 players)

      River: 3 :diamond: (t 3.96$, 2 players).

      Results:
      Final pot: t 3.96$
      Hero showed K :spade: ,Q :heart: -1pair
      SB showed A :diamond: ,J :diamond: -Ace high flush
      Is it my mistake or bad luck? I was pot committed on flop and decided to push to protect my top pair and to create him bad pot odds.I had the same situation early,heads up with villain in UTG+1 with the same miserable result.

      Hand 2 NL Holdem 0,05/0,1;full ring;
      Chip stacks:
      UTG: 2.00$
      UTG+1:4.25$
      UTG+2:8.10$
      MP1: 4.15$
      MP2: 1.85$
      MP3: 1.75$
      CO: 6.85$
      Button:1.85$ Hero
      SB: 12.55$
      BB: 8.45$
      Preflop: (10 players) Hero is Button with K :club: ,Q :diamond:
      7 folds, , Hero raises 0.4$,SB calls 0.35$?, BB calls 0.30$.

      Flop: T :club: 6 :diamond: 4 :spade: (t1.2$, 3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets 0.6$, Hero folds,SB calls 0.6$.

      Turn: Q :diamond: (t2.4$, 2players)
      SB cheks,BB checks.

      River: A :spade: (t2.4$, 2 players)
      SB bets 2.00$,BB calls 2.00$.

      Results:
      Final pot: t6.4$
      SB showed T :diamond: T :heart: - set
      BB showed A :club: 8 :club: -1 pair
      Not continued,thrash hand,only over cards,not many outs,bad pot odds.Right? I`m not very keen on those KQ in SSS game cos of my not good experience.Do you have some tips about KQ play? And please continue essays on SSS.
      Happy Easter and all the best for all PS members and especially for our judges xylere and Berliner1985.Good luck guys.

      1) You played it right. You have 55% equity on the flop against him, so going all-in is just the best option to extract money from him :) .

      2) It was fine as well. With two oponents you don't need to play a continuation bet - especially when one of them donks into you ;) .
