      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.62 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with T:club: , K:club:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB folds, BB calls $0.30.

      I hit top pair with a not so great kicker but I thought if he had has AK KQ he may have raised me. This guy was very fishy and had just lost a pot before by shoving KQo preflop.

      Flop: ($0.85) K:heart: , 7:club: , 4:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.85, Hero raises to $1.45 (All-In), BB calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($3.75) A:diamond:
      River: ($3.75) A:spade: (1 players)

      Final Pot: $3.75

      Hello PidKoker,

      I would advise you not to use steals against fishy opponents because they are likely to call, with steals you want to get the 1.5bb pre-flop without resistance.

      Also the use of Stats is more important than reads regarding steals.

      As played, the board looks so dry, your T kicker must be good here so I would have done the same thing as you

      Best regards,
