      A couple of hands I'm not sure if I played right, the table was pretty fishy so I figured they would play worse hands. Also, the only reason I had a large stack is because I was freeplaying.

      #1 I would play c/f against 2 opponents, because you don't have a made hand here.

      #2 Nh.

      hand 1: c/f without a made hand against 2 opponents

      hand 2: I fold to the reraise on flop. Now that you have a big stack you can't count TPTK on that board as the nuts... Especially against 2 players either of them could have a flush, a flush+straightdraw, a set.. and so on.

      @ysessa: I have a problem with hand #2. When double-stacked shouldn't you only play KK+ (especially from early position)? It just doesn't seem like a SSS type play here

      Could you please explain this hand in more detail?

      Thanks in advance :)

      hi mikelstwe,

      maybe you are right and you shouldnt play more then aa,kk with a double stack. I answered as it was adv sss here and there we play any hand with double stack. So i focussed more on the postflop action and there it is an easy allin.

      MP1 can raise a lot of worse kings, fdraws, combo draws etc. and because you only need something like 26% equity its an easy allin, sure he can have flopped the flush or a set but against a range hero will have enough equity. maybe villain has a combo draw like 67,89 with fdraw

      Thanks for the comments, the 2nd was the one i was most worried about. 1st hand people were calling with any 2 over cards so i thought I was ahead most of the time, he had AT but thats not important.
