      I found my situation in SB w/ AKs BB is 17/13 CO 22/17/47( 29% CO steal)
      I 3bet the CO as BB tends to fold his BB to steal 88% of time. At the time it seemed like the best fold given the BB actually min raised me.

      another situation in the SB I have QQ. This hand is moments after my previous post of AKs in the SB. MP 23/17 stats 4BetPF and with 23bb left I shove here instead of 3bet resteal as I felt I'd be pot committed should we see a flop. Just an unfortunate turn of events he actually shows AA. Thinking back should I have at least saved my stack and just 3bet/fold as an option, but sss chart says if reraised to shove so either way laying QQ is not something I'm doing anyhow in this situation as a SS. Just wanted to get some feed back.

      last one for today as i've gotta run off to work. I do appreciate any feed back by PS members. Its something I've never done in the past and if I want to become a better player I should start taking advantage of the forums and the advice from everyone in doing so. So many thanks in advance.

      I'm AJo in SB. Std 4+1 bet PF and I get both callers. The flop is not the greatest for me, and given MP folds 77% flop I throw out just over min bet and BB calls. I'm lost now and decided to follow up and shove as the board pairs 9's to represent 2 pairs or even a set from my pos. Unfornate he shows Q9o. Ck/fold turn should have been the move but I'll be honest I was lost and for some reason I had in my head KT+ maybe gut shot but I was wrong.

      Why you don't post here? : http://www.pokerstrategy.com/forum/board.php?boardid=1436


      When you 3bet with AKs you can't fold much, except if the villain is nit and 3bets less than 3% of the range. You can know this by calculating your break even equity.

      You can't think in the final result as if you should fold or not. QQ with 23 bb is nuts :D You should 3bet 3 times the initial raise, but since you're 3beting more than half of your stack you should go all in.

      To start, the std raise in mss is 3bb+1 per limper. Cbet is fine, but you should check/fold on turn, they can have flush draw or straight draw, but the times they got something you'll be losing a lot of money with bluff. So it's good to play std in micros.
