      What do you mean?You're heads up with the guy?.
      I would push the flop,but then again it's dry so....judges?.

      Oh and remember to raise 4bb+1bb per limper meaning in this situation you'd have to raise 0.50

      well the thing that i meant was that there are 4 calling players at a 10 player table (2 before me and 2 after me) and the players at the table are calling almost every hand so i'm almost certain that i'll get at least 4 or 5 calls this time also

      OH WAIT???i didn't notice this,why are you raising Mp2 with KQ?You can play that hand from late position and blinds only.

      So fold preflop

      ok that puts another question on the line. I am playing by the starting hands chart that I downloaded from the FL section. Now i checked the NL section and I see that the chart there is not so detailed and has differences like this one. So can I use the shc from the FL section (the hands are the same so they must be played in almost the same way right?) or should I refer to the NL chart even if it is less detailed

      lol, if you play NL you should use the NL SHC.
      KQ is a fold from MP.
      IF you play it you should just raise 5BB since there is one limper.
      You can push the flop, but you might also just call since the board is dry as Backcushion said.
      I don't think it matters really. However, he isn't donkbetting this flop for no reason, I think he will probably call your flop-push already.
      Turn is an easy push.

      I say he was holding 66 or 99 and making silly 1/2pot-size bets :D

      Hi NRGBlaze,

      NL and FL are pretty much two different games - saying you can use shc from fl in nl is like saying you can use the same joseki in Go and chess.

      About the hand: you should've fold it preflop, raise KQ only from late position. But as played you hit your pair and therefore should push the flop.

      One more thing - you had about $3 stack which is too much for sss. If you exceed the 25BB amount, change tables.
