      0,5/1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:spade: , Q:club:
      4 folds, MP3 calls $1,00, 2 folds, Hero raises to $5,00, BB folds, MP3 calls $4,00.

      Flop: ($11,00) 9:heart: , 2:diamond: , 3:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6,00, MP3 calls $6,00.

      Turn: ($23,00) J:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      River: ($23,00) 9:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      1] I dont like to play OOP KQ/77/88 so shoudl I just complete the SB ?
      2] I should have gone all-in on the Flop or should I save my money and c-bet accordingly because chances are only 23% I hit a Q or K.

      On the turn I get +4 outs due a gushot, an appropriate timing to push for value and not for Fold Equity because I got none?

      1) I am not sure about completing such hands as you mentioned. I guess in big run it would bring you negative profit. But lets see what judges think about that.
      2) I don't think the push would scare the villain out, look the VPIP :(

      I guess you chose the best way to play the hand. But lets see what judges think of such play.

      Hi Gerv,

      i would raise 6$ preflop against the fish maybe also 6,5$ and push any flop. You have no advantage in only raising 5$ he will call anyway. I dont like completing you have an equity edge against mp3 and should use it. Sometimes you are even ahead with K high so raise more preflop and push the flop directly will be profitable in the long run.

      So

      Raising more =
      + He will call us anyway
      + To make us go all-in easier
      + More value?

      Following calling stations around again? Try this... With 20BB raise 5BB and shove any flop. With 19BB raise 6BB and shove any flop. With 18BB raise 6.5BB and shove any flop. With less than 18BB raise 5BB and bet 5BB flop, push any turn. With JJ+ raise 5BB and bet 5BB flop, 5BB turn, all-in river. ONLY RECOMEND ON CALLING STATIONS RP less than 6 and AF less than 1!
