      Are you following the charts?

      Why do you raise a hand like KQ utg? And even more, why do you call the 3-bet?



      You had a gssd and a fd + 2 overcards on the flop + foldequity. So i'd cbet 3/4 of the flop pot and play b/f.

      First of all you made a bad play preflop. Of course if the table was full of nits and the CO was 3betting light it was a smaller mistake, but still a mistake.

      On the flop things became Tragic. You were slight underdog versus AA and Kings and slightly in front against QQ, JJ , AK. So for me it was a shove since the other guy will have more AQ, AJ (hands that have equity but mostly fold even if they seem commited) than TT and 99. A call is out of question since the power of your hand comes from obvious draws (like FD), stacks are not so deep and if a King or a Queen are outs for you, you want get payed if they come. So, ship it to maximize your equity!!!

      Hello art3h,

      Preflop: Wouldn't advice to open from UTG as long you don't have a great postflop experience. Vs the 3bet easy fold.

      As played
      Postflop: Can't really see how you can fold such a hand if you are calling it preflop Check/Shove here with the equity.

      Best Regards.
