      Yeah, it was NL10, I had just won the last hand with AA.. I usually wait till the big blind to leave a table in SSS, I just play less hands when I have more than 25BB (I guess this is ok, but should I leave as soon as I have more than 25BB?, just to avoid this kind of situations?).

      The table was crazy, I think this is like 2nd-3rd time I get 3 players call my initial raise in 10k hands. On the flop I raised 2/3 of the pot, but having 3 opponents, should I have pushed right there?

      KK is a hand that you can easily play when overstacked. 2/3pot bet on flop and shove on river, nice hand. The ace was unfortunate in the end.

      Oh, you should always wait to blind out. But when you have such a large stack you could play more tight, only QQ+.

      nh and don't focus on results , most of the times you are going to leave the table with 98bb if you play this hand this way.

      Nh, you played 100% correct.

      And what concerns playing with bigger stack, it is fully dependant on your selfconfidence and your postflop skills. If you think you can manage some postflop game, then you can play all the hands from SHC, but if you think you will have trouble postflop then only continue with premium hands which are easy to play postflop(AK/JJ+).
