      Tried a Semi-Bluf, what would the best option have been?

      CO: $16 (100 bb)
      BTN: $33.51 (209.4 bb)
      SB: $21.19 (132.4 bb)
      Hero (BB): $16 (100 bb)
      UTG: $21.89 (136.8 bb)
      MP: $17.35 (108.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K Q
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.48, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.52, CO calls $1.04

      Flop: ($3.12) 5 8 T (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.23, CO raises to $5.28, Hero raises to $14.48 and is all-in, CO calls $9.20 and is all-in

      Turn: ($32.08) T (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($32.08) T (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results: $32.08 pot ($1.44 rake)
      Final Board: 5 8 T T T
      CO showed K A and won $30.64 ($14.64 net)
      Hero showed K Q and lost (-$16 net)

      Hey man,

      again no stats ...

      This sucks what range do you think he will play this way against 3bettor preflop?
      you have like 0FE in this spot .. + dominated Khigh flush ... At the very best scenario you will stand against AcQ/K ...

      however, once again depends on villian... I will fold ;) It's all different story holding Acx ... like this I just don't like it :) = against unknown ofc ...

      Hello MattDenness,

      Preflop: What's the purpose of 3betting in first place here?

      As played
      Postflop: I'd rather give up my hand here than go broke. You at the best just flipping here but meanwhile could be even against a better FD.

      Best Regards.

      I'm trying to loosen up and one area that "Leakbuster" says I could improve was to 3B from BB more.
      He could just be stealing so I'll take it down pre often? If he does call I have a marginal hands to play with whilst in position. I guess that I'm looking at this all wrong, I should be Folding? I think Calling here is weak.

      I know my Post flop play was bad though :D

      I wouldn't say that 3betting is bad but I'd rather prefer doing it when I'd also expect the guy being capable of calling with a lot worse Kx/Qx hands. :P And not only the hands which dominate us.
