      On Game, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      Hero (MP): $49.25 (98.5 bb)
      CO: $58.50 (117 bb)
      BTN: $57.16 (114.3 bb)
      SB: $71.17 (142.3 bb)
      BB: $50.57 (101.1 bb)
      UTG: $58.94 (117.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K K
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $1.75, CO calls $1.75, 2 folds, BB calls $1.25

      Flop: ($5.50) 5 J 8 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $4, CO calls $4, BB folds

      Turn: ($13.50) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $8, CO raises to $20, Hero raises to $43.50 and is all-in, CO calls $23.50

      River: ($100.50) 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $100.50 pot ($3 rake)
      Final Board: 5 J 8 6 9
      Hero showed K K and lost (-$49.25 net)
      CO showed 8 8 and won $97.50 ($48.25 net)

      I think this hand is a clear sign of me under performing. I just thrown all my logic out the window and called because of the super high agg freq.

      So, clear fold, right :D ?

      He doesn't rep much but you did bet flop vs 2 and bet turn again, I don't see him thinking he has FE with some sort of draw. I don't know what I would do at the table but I think folding is better.

      Hi DeMarco,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: What do we know about BB? He may be important when deciding CO's range for calling the flop.

      CO's raise cbet is rather big so I would expect him to raise most draws on the flop (and some sets/2p) but he may call the stronger part of his range to keep BB in the pot.

      These really aggro guys sometimes slowplay their really big hands in this fashion so the turn is closer to a fold. In the heat of the moment, if we just look at the stats I think it will be hard to fold.

      However, I have a question for you. Have you considered ck/raising either the flop or turn versus him? He is very likely to bet all of his range there and on the flop we can even trap the BB guy.

      Hey Bogdan,

      Thanks for another good point. I think this looks like a sign of me under performing ;)
