      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:spade: , K:club:
      MP3 calls $0,50, Hero raises to $2,50, BU folds, SB calls $2,25, BB folds, MP3 calls $2,00.

      Flop: ($8,00) 9:heart: , 7:spade: , 3:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $6, SB folds, MP3 raises to $15,00, Hero???

      Don't know much about MP3.
      The question is if he either could bluff or c/r with a weaker hand.

      Final Pot: $101,50

      So you did go broke, eh? ;)

      The important question here is his flop aggression. By raising here, his hand is rather polarized to sets and flush draws, even though you might see a pocket pair in there from time to time. Based on how aggressive he is on the flop, you can decide whether you can profitably shove KK against draws or not.

      Now, in this case, you play against unknown - 40 hands don't really tell you much. With this pre-flop action, I would thus tend to rather fold here; you are either way behind or a little ahead.

      Hello chocular77,

      Unfortunately I wouldn't really take much into account the stats or anything here and while he is rather unknown to us I'd go towards Bet/Fold while this kind of line from his side is much stronger.

      Best Regards.

      Ahhh, missed to delete that aswell. :)

      I knew that i can't trust the stats too much but he has been very aggressive in this 40 hands.
      Still such a c/r in a multiwaypot represents a lot of strength and i should have folded.
      Thx guys!
