      HAND #1

      Party Poker, $0.05/$0.10 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 10 Players
      Hand History Converter by Stoxpoker

      MP3: $10.98 (109.8 bb)
      CO: $7.98 (79.8 bb)
      BTN: $13.57 (135.7 bb)
      Hero (SB): $1.90 (19 bb)
      BB: $2.35 (23.5 bb)
      UTG: $1.90 (19 bb)
      UTG+1: $10 (100 bb)
      UTG+2: $3.21 (32.1 bb)
      MP1: $2 (20 bb)
      MP2: $1.85 (18.5 bb)

      Pre-Flop: Hero is SB with 2
      5 folds, MP3 calls $0.10, CO folds, BTN calls $0.10, Hero completes, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.40) 2 (4 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, MP3 bets $0.10, BTN calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.48, BB folds, MP3 calls $0.38, BTN folds

      Turn: ($1.46) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.32 and is all-in, MP3 calls $1.32

      River: ($4.10) 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      First of all, my call from SB is questionable, I know that. But then I hit two-pair on the flop. I raised on the flop since I had a good hand, and MP3 called. Then on the turn I pushed all-in since I still had a pretty good hand. Could I have played this hand in another way?

      Hi koasesica,

      Limping in with K/Qx suited will give you a negative expected value in the long run, I even do not limp with those junk hands ;)

      As played, you should lead out for like $0.25c on the Flop, following up by a 2nd barrel of 2/3 pot on the Turn. If thats more than 50% of your stack, go all-in.

      I know I know, I made a lot of crappy pre-flop moves that session. Was some semi-tilt-thing which reminds me that I really should re-read the psychology articles. Playing too many hands really makes me unfocused...
