      Could we ever justify a call there? I feel not but had to ask.

      Opponent is an unknown but due to his minraise and check raise I would put him on AA, trips most of the times on this line of play.

      Can I put him on a flush or straighdraw there?

      :f_biggrin: Yeah, it's just how Hasenbraten explained we should play draws.

      Come on, mate :) You don't even have TPTK here, let it go!

      I always fold the first time it happens. Then I just watch him closely, if he does it again, perfectly with the showdown, the next time I'm just taking his stack :)

      It's not that easy on Zoom, just try making notes anyway.

      Best,

      Still double checking though.

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: Against the min raise we can also 3-bet preflop to something like $.25-.30

      Flop: I would bet/fold here as well. TPGK is usually dead in the water here and even if he does this with a draw we are not in great shape.

      I would only call here against maniac fish or super aggro shorties that shove a ton of random hands (like Tx).

      Should I be 3bet KQ vs UG raise there?

      It does have blockers but isnt that a bit light without reads?

      If we do raise are we then turning our hand into a bluff or are we just exploiting the fact we are in P ?

      My guess is that 60 bb stacked player that raises 2 bb from UTG is a positionally unaware fish. Therefore, we might raise here for value (without going broke preflop of course).

      KQs plays very well postflop IP. Yo can expect to hit a draw or a TP quite often.
