      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) HERO is SB Q:club: K:heart:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.30, HERO calls $0.25, 1 fold

      HERO checks, BTN bets $0.45, HERO folds

      PRE
      More of a general question - which hands should I flat, which to 3-bet?
      I`m flatting suited JT, QJ, KQ, AQ, KJ and pairs 22-JJ.

      I`m 3-betting top of my range, small Axs, some off-suit broadways.
      So, is KQo good enough to flat here?

      FLOP
      Hard to play OOP, also I don`t have too much equity.

      Hi.

      Preflop: In the SB you should try not to have a flatting range. I just 3bet everything here. It's not good to have BB come along (by squeezing or calling)

      Thanks.


      By 3-betting it will be much easier to play!
      Do you think, flatting small PP`s is OK?

      They generally don't play that well from SB

      Something to note: Small pocket pairs play well for stacks preflop (they have high PF equity) or in single-raised pots (they can flop sets) but fare poorly in 3b pots.

      1. Pot odds are less favourable than in BB
      2. I think having BB overcall when you have 22 isn't too bad
      3. Really bad if you get squeezed cos you can't really continue
      4. I like 3betting vs an aggro 4better cos you can re-jam over
      5. Remember that folding is an option.

      Playability is generally poor so I'll fold vs good players. Vs a mediocre or bad player, calling is fine. Do you think you are that much better than your opponent though? That's the main thing to think about.
