      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (5 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Hero (Button) ($23.50)
      SB ($25.50)
      BB ($26.05)
      UTG ($10.60)
      MP ($27.50)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with K, A
      UTG raises to $0.75, MP calls $0.75, Hero raises to $3.25, 2 folds, UTG calls $2.50, 1 fold

      Flop: ($7.60) Q, K, 9 (2 players)
      UTG bets $7.35 (All-In), Hero calls $7.35

      Turn: ($22.30) 8 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($22.30) 4 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $22.30 | Rake: $1.05

      this is a call right? I mean most of the time these idiots have 1 pair or worse...

      I've got another question too. On some of the other hand postings from today the guys are talking about using stats for their reads on players they've only seen play 30-40 hands. At what point do you stop treating the player as unknown and what stats are useful with a small sample? I would think AF could be a little more useful at a small sample size than say attempt to steal, or even PFR.

      snap call, he has a stack of 40bbs, raises/calls with that stack, and donkbets AI on the flop? ultra donk detected, TPTK is more than enough.

      Easy call. 3bet-Pot against a shortstack -> TPTK = NUTS ;)

      @Question: If you have 30-40 hands of a player. You can take a look at his vpip or pfr. Someone playing 70/50 after 30 hands has definitive fishy tendencies.

      But especially AF(´s) isn´t worth to think about. It can jump vom zero to infinite in a few hands.

      The most important thing is: Watch how your opponents play! There is nothing that gives you more informations.
