      Well played but unlucky yes to hit 1 of his 3 outs.
      But remember: the next thirteen times he does this again, he will lose ;)

      You should edit your topic with AKs instead of Pocket Kings

      Push preflop for headsup situation?

      By the strategy he should raise 0,8 'cause the 3x original raise plus one caller. On the flop I think the push is correct (stack<pot).

      He's completely committed on any flop.
      Judges will probably say push as well, I hope.... :)

      i think he did the right thing... luck just got the best of you.

      but like Gerv said, the majority of the time, he'll get owned with that shitty A5.

      The SSS says raise to $0,8, but if you are in blinds you are 1st to act after the flop and that means cbet 2/3 of the pot no matter what hands you have. 2/3 of the pot in that moment will be more than half of your stack for sure, so you'll have to go all-in one way or another, and it's better to push pre-flop, because that's the point of SSS. To put all your mony in the pot as soon as possible.
      This is not based on experience but on some calculations:
      If you're in blinds and have 2 limpers or 1 raiser (even if it's a minraise) you push pre-flop! (except if your stack is 23BB+)

      So, my oppinion is the same as DeKuip said. Push pre-flop!

      I must say I'll miss you guys. I'm going on vacation in few hours, and that means no comp. for 10 days. And I'm really interested in what will judge say on this.

      I wish all the luck to all of you and hope you'll be on higher limit when I get back ;)

      I agree with DeKuip as well although at first sight, I didnt saw any stacksizes.

      1 Minraises + 1 raisecaller is actually a Squeeze play by pushing it all-in.

      If the original raiser folds, odds are high the caller will fold too. And if he calls, well then you still have got Big Slick Suited.
