      Dont like minraise at all. Tbh i think you deserved to loose, so you would remember not to minraise from UTG with 66 ever again... Its like you were asking to get called by T9s type hand and getting schooled. Of course i am glad you did suck out and hope you learnt your lesson this way :)

      I don't wanna be the bad guy and I know this is not a hand analyzing thread... But I have to be honest and tell you your line is terrible in this hand :( ... So well hopefully you won't make the same mistake again :)

      So firstly pocket sixes are simply not good enough UTG in a 8 handed game... So throw em away... Secondly min raising utg is simply a terrible idea.

      So now for the flop play... preflop you open raise the pot... co calls you...
      You hit a magic flop and get your set... Now what is the standard line? yes, thats right make a continuation bet. ALWAYS C-Bet when your OOP always. You can check behind sometimes when your in position but ALWAYS C-bet when your OOP...

      Checking here is simply terrible... Since it's not your standard line I hope.. I mean if you had AKo and the flop would be 68Q you would c-bet? so why not c-bet when the flops hits you? This is obv. a leak if you don't play bluffs the same way as a made hand... and you also need to bet to protect your hand against a Flush and a Straight draw... the board is really drawy..

      So another magic happens and the player somehow falls into the trap and bets out... you now call him? why what how?

      You obv. get sucked out on when you don't protect your hands at all....
      And you obv. leak chips if you raise 66 utg..


      So well there are pretty many leaks in this single hand so I would recommend you to post some hands in the hand sample thread... if not well it's your poker career :)

      Thanks guys for your reply...
      Everyone make at least 1mistake in an MTT and this was my mistake. I was getting help by sidewalker. If I remember he wanted me to fold but I just lost to a 666set the hand just before. So I was kinda pissed. And I tend to play bad when I'm pissed. And I'm aware enough of how bad my play was. AND HOW LUCKY I'M TODAY!!!!!
      with Sidewalker at my side, I end up .... see for yourself!!!

      i don't mind pre but postflop is just bad. check/calling on this flop just begs for trouble. nice takedown though.
