      Hi,

      preflop raise is ok. I don't know why do you say it should be 30c, justkyle88?

      On the flop a push is a must. Why do you want to check?

      Because of the straight :( I have lost too many AA-s and that's why I thought of checking :P

      The only straights I see are QT and AQ. The first one is unlikely because only weak oponents will call a raise from a shortstack with such a weak holding. AQ is indeed a threat, but hey, are you going to lay dow your overpair with a gutshot to nut straight just to some *immense* threat of one hand that beats you? Maybe you're also afraid of TT, JJ, KK...?

      I mean, these are indeed hands that just outdrawn you, but you cannot back down now and let some stupid T2o hit his second bair on the turn for free. Simple and profitable strategy = push here. No exceptions.

      Textbook SSS is 3x raise which is 30c???
      Dont get me wrong I raise 35-45c pre-flop with A,A and K,K but only when I have been raising a lot previously in the session.

      I defiantly wouldn't be checking on the flop after 2 players have checked it to me and I have an over-pair which is a made hand.
      I'd only be folding here if there is an abundance of action before me.

      I have to apolgise and bring up an important topic, i would post it somewhere else but it has come to my attention in this thread.

      If you are the first to enter the pot, you bet 4 times the big blind.
      (which is 40c)

      This is what SSS suggests and a couple of weeks ago someone told me to only raise to 30c when first in, can't remember who it was and this sounds really rude but I'm a little dissapointed someone is giving me and possibly other people false information.
      I take back what I said about the 30c raise and I'll defiently keep an eye on this in the future, I'm sorry I may of lead Veriz to false information and the wrong habits.

      My apologies.
