      I am curious if I should have saw this coming with his crazyness on the flop. I sometimes just assumed bluff, but guessing I should not have. For future referance I am not sure if I should have just folded when he went all in.

      IPoker, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      UTG+2: $5.20 (130 bb)
      MP1: $10.13 (253.3 bb)
      MP2: $5.10 (127.5 bb)
      MP3: $5.04 (126 bb)
      CO: $2.98 (74.5 bb)
      BTN: $0.90 (22.5 bb)
      SB: $1.21 (30.3 bb)
      BB: $1.66 (41.5 bb)
      Hero (UTG+1): $1.17 (29.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with K K
      Hero raises to $0.12, 3 folds, MP3 calls $0.12, 4 folds

      Flop: ($0.30) J K Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, MP3 raises to $0.37, Hero raises to $0.59, MP3 raises to $4.92 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.46 and is all-in

      Turn: ($2.40) 3 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($2.40) A (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      $2.40 pot ($0.16 rake)
      Final Board: J K Q 3 A
      MP3 showed 9 T and won $2.24 ($1.07 net)
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$1.17 net)

      Nope, you couldn't see that coming, relax, well played! Seriously mate, how could you see that coming? Everybody plays differently, for some hitting their Qx hand with this kind of flop would make them want to bet/raise/raise/all-in, for some hitting their Qx hand on this flop would make them check/fold.. They all play differently and unless you have some crazy read you can't put opponent on straight specifically or something close like that..

      And after all you, you don't expect someone to cold call your raise from UTG with 9Ts.. :f_rolleyes: Generally, playing from UTG means you have tight range from there..

      As always wait for Gerv, I'm not 100% confident about what I say.. :f_tongue:

      Hey chow,

      we cannot really bet/fold with 30bb starting stack with our topset where our opponents can have worse sets/twopairs or pair+draw. Therefore we have to bet/shove. I strongly dislike your 59cents raise because you do not want to give him the chance to make a call and you play the turn.
      This means his shoving range is pretty strong while his call range is pretty dire but you give him the odds to draw out on you
