      Preflop, I played according to SSS articles. However, I'm attending Leo's coachings and he often states that it is better to shove when there are 3+ limpers. I think by not doing this I lost this hand (villain got 8d 6s so he slowplayed his straight from the flop).

      Hi Werkon,

      I encourage you to push the flop here. You were the preflop aggressor, they checked to you and you have two overcards + a gutshot. For me it's enough to shove it right there on the flop.

      About the preflop - it's ok if your stack's enlarged, and it is - as you can see. With 24BB direct push in position after three limpers seems premature for me, especially with KQs hand which has nice playability and is rather going to gain value on the flop than lose it (77 would most likely loose value here). I think you did well.

      Oh my, you are right ! I completely forgot about a standard c-bet, what a stupid mistake. Thanks for pointing that out.

      It's not that standard ;) . It'd be typical against one oponent, but here you can easily go for it against two because of additional outs.

      See you posting some more!
