      UTG shows 5:spade: A:diamond:

      Hero shows J:heart: J:diamond:
      (Pre 69%, Flop 14.8%, Turn 4.5%)

      UTG wins $13.55


      Despite limp/shove usually means super strong range I think this 50-70bb players can do it sometimes with even worse hands. What do you think?

      I know you don't like two hands in the same thread but next hand happened just few hands later against the same opponent...
      HM doesn't show it right but he's obviously covering me.

      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $11.30 (AI), Hero folds

      UTG+1 wins $4.81

      Do I always go broke against this kind of player or just play it postflop? Again if A didn't come I would go broke. During this session I lost 2 times KK<AA and one QQ<KK which is nothing special but that's probably the reason for more conservative play by me.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: I actually agree with your call.

      Limp/reraise, usually limp/min re-raise, looks strong. A limp shove looks a lot less strong in my opinion so I would call here as well.

      Well played.


      As far as the second hand goes that min raise looks stronger but he can still have AK/AQ/QQ/JJ/Etc and I would just go broke there preflop. There's no reason to call there without any information and I think you were affected by tilt and results from the previous KK vs AA hands.
