      Opponents' stats:

      Why didn't I raise preflop? I'll play postflop vs CO in 71% if I limp (he has 71 limp preflop). And only 10% if I raise (he has 10 cold call). I wanted to play this AA vs CO so badly because if he sees the flop, he pays me almost 1/2 of the time (he has 46 WTSD). But while planning this "vs CO play" I forgot about other players in the hand and gave them good price to call with their connectors :facepalm:


      You need to raise bigger on the Flop with your KK, the Q on the Turn is a horrible card and I can even see myself checking it down. His range is for sure Qx as in the majority so your equity shifts from being a hands down favourite to a big underdog. No need to put the money in there.

      The 2nd hand is just strangely played. do you ever call//limp preflop? :f_eek:

      As I see more fishy players playing on 2NL, you are better off raising 4bb + 1bb per limper, works more efficient and counters their loose calling range abit as they get less implied odds :)
