      Hey ramadas,

      I would advice you to re-study the MSS articles again regarding sizings because if we reraise a certain hand, we are reraising 3 times his original raise. That means in this example I go to 18 cents if I would 3bet KJo here. I do not do this often and if you play without statistics, it is a very dangerous move

      This is because we want to accrue value from our opponents and at the same time negate them favourable pot odds

      On the Flop we have to go with our hand basically since there are draws out there

      Best regards,
      Gerv
