      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      SB: $62.87 (251.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $25.80 (103.2 bb) 38/34/3.0/21.4/67/31
      MP: $28.86 (115.4 bb) 24/20/7.0/5.6/33/48
      CO: $6.25 (25 bb)
      BTN: $12.16 (48.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K K
      MP raises to $0.75, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2.50, MP calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.10) Q T Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $4, MP calls $4

      Turn: ($13.10) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $10, MP raises to $22.36 and is all-in, Hero calls $9.30 and is all-in

      Ok, so I'm the loosest guy on the table and I'm raising left right and center. This guy plans to shove against me and I'm thinking that he could do that with a lot of lower pairs or draws cause many times he'll think I'm bluffing and I went ahead and called. Very new to the LAG style of playing and would like to know your thoughts on this hand.

      River: ($51.70) 6 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Hi maheepsangari,

      what about learning good TAGish game at first? :) )

      Flop - I don't like your sizing it's way too polarizing. All these situation is way ahead/way behind ... You want to keep the pot small ;) esp. OOP ....

      I like bet flop 1/2 at max ... and then check Turn ... MP has MANY and MANY floats from flop... However, whenever you second barrel he folds it.
      Check turn to get max value from his bluffs ... - I hope I read his stats correctly, he should be very aggresive => this is the way to exploit him!

      Your range will be face up like hell and he will atack it with nonsense bluffs ;)

      Yup, should have played way ahead way behind. Guess I got too carried away with my own image :D . Yup he's aggressive and I should have let him bluff it off. Lucky for me he did bluff it off, dumbass had 99.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Well, from how many worse hands do you see even floating vs you or bluffing when you Bet so big? I wouldn't really see, therefore you have to fix your bet sizes into smaller ones in 3bet pots cause I doubt that you would bet with bluffs this way.

      But practically with your play you just commit yourself. :( Although I really can't see him bluffing here rather see it being for value.

      Best Regards.
