      That's one ugly spot :D

      I don't feel like they are a good player cause of their stacks, but still this spot hit their range so hard. I have to admit that this was the first spot ever that I wasn't sure about my set strenght. I won't write what they can have, cause it's kinda obvious, draws, flushes, 2 pairs, sets etc.

      I had to call their All In's, so I'm sure it was a good decision, but what if I would change my position with BU? I'm last to act and both of them pushed all in. Ugly one, very ugly.

      I have a question about HM2 $EV difference, probably I should ask it in my locker room, so if you can't answer me here I will just write it with next homework. Why HM is telling me that it was EV- decision? Or I'm just interpreting it wrong.

      Hello Friedric,

      What you have to understand here is that the only reasonable hand I see we have beat is KK/AA which he tried to trap preflop. :D That's the problem... although assuming that could be the case I don't mind to get it in, though we have to 3bet it a bit bigger and then get it in. Whilst our normal raise is even more than 1/2 of our stack we could also just get it in.

      Guess wrong hand. :D

      Best Regards.

      FML, dunno how I made it. The best thing is that I was looking at this thread and wonder why T3s hand was opening, not the 99 one. Thought my browser is broken or something :D

      Not much to comment on your 99 hands, pretty standard. :) Especially not even vs full stacks. :D
