      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.65 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Is this line fine for basic SSS? Nothing I could do about it right?

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with Q:spade: , Q:club:
      Hero raises to $1.00, 6 folds, SB calls $0.90, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2.25) K:heart: , 3:diamond: , K:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3.95 (All-In), SB calls $3.95.

      Turn: ($10.15) J:spade:
      River: ($10.15) 2:heart: (1 players)

      Final Pot: $10.15

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      He had a King :(

      SB wins with three of a kind, kings (Ks Qd)

      why do you push the flop ? a cbet would be smth like 1.5 and certainly not more than half you stac

      place the normal cbet.

      I agree, you should bet like 2/3 of the pot, there's no need to push when your stack is almost twice as big as the pot.

      You should bet 1.5$ and fold to a reraise. You don't have a made hand. When you hold a PP QQ- and a flop brings A or K you are beat in most cases, so just c-bet to see what your opponent does and fold if he shows any action.

      Hey PidKoker,

      A normal cbet would be $1.5 ([2,25//3]x2) and that's not 50% of your remainig stack.

      If he reraises, I will go shove it all-in, if Villain reraises you with a FD he will lose money in the long run, if he has trip kings well that occur only once in a while

      Just do not overpush the pot next time
