      SB wins with two pairs, queens and sixes(Q K).


      Had a lot of similar hands (AQ vs AK, KQ vs AK, etc...). Anything I could do here ?

      Yeah I was considering the 3-bet. Should isolation be standard in this situation ?

      I unfortunately have no reads or stats because I really wanted to reach NL10 before starting to use a HUD. I've achieved that just now so I've yet to set everything up, get used to the stats and all that stuff.

      You could 3-bet it, just call, or even fold it. It's most of the time dominated. Like in this case, you hit your TP, but calling 3str is usually rather spewwy, because opponents Q-range is QJ+, maybe QTs.

      Hello elda420,

      Perfect example why you shouldn't be flatting those hands preflop cause you are just putting yourself into a spot where you don't have much beat with your TP. Though you are calling him down. :(

      Therefore rather fold it preflop to avoid postflop mistakes as you most likely going to do them often enough and rarely know where you stand. With more experience can also start to play more looser.

      Best Regards.
