      Your Flop call is not necessarily bad, but it requires the read that your opponent is polarized with his raising range (never raising one pair hands, only 2pairs+ and draws and gutshots and backdoor draws type of stuff).

      If that's the case, KK and AQ have the same relative hand strength against such a range, don't you agree? You are either ahead of his draws, or you are behind his monsters.

      However, you must always remember that you are a MSS player. When people play with shorter stacks, the SPR is lower too. Thus, people start merging their raising ranges for thinner value with one pair type of hands.

      So I think your flop bet/call is spew.

      Preflop is fine.

      I do agree with mbml for the flop.
      Since we play with smaller stack people will start to raise more with one-pair hands rather than with backdoor draws, so I think we have to bet/fold the flop here without reads.

      The turn is good.
