      Ouch!
      Just wondering about #3, why did you shove preflop instead of betting 0.40?

      3xnh, a raise would commit him anyway with such a small stack

      That's good to hear but it was just so strange... I loose with KK against AQ and then i loose two times with AQ against KK just the next two hands...

      :rolleyes: That's poker; i like it :P

      Just a note for people here.
      I'm from the Dutch part of this website and this is my first visit on the English forum.
      I'm just trying to get some more experience with SSS, so I'll give my opinion over some hands too here, I suppose that's ok with everyone :)

      So if I say strange things, please correct me!!

      I think something is going wrong in the last hand.
      First of all you should have done a rebuy, to get on $2 again.
      Villain appears to be a SSS player too, so with a preflop reraise, you can easily determine his hand range.
      Then a preflop raise of $0.40, if he reraises you, you should just fold because you know he got AA-JJ of AK, he got an advantage with every hand.
      If he calls you, you can cbet on the flop and see what happens.

      It also looks a bit like tilt going on there in the last hand, because you lost 2 previous hands, be careful with that ;)

      Welcome in the english forum :) I am not english either, but german and thanks for your comment. Every comment is useful.

      I didn't manage it to do a rebuy after that hand, since it didn't react fast enough. Perhaps i had to handle with another table or so. You're probably right, that i was a little bit tilt, but on the other hand if he had reraised me i would have left 80cents or so and my stack size:raise size would be 2:1, so i should have called sticking to the rules anyway.

      Ok, that explains it.
      So that's why you should rebuy, cause now you're all-in no matter, while you should be able to fold on a reraise.

      This is just a case of bad luck I think, facing KK 2 times with AQ isn't fun..
