      Bet 1.50$ on the flop and fold to a reraise. Or c/f all the way if he calls flop unless you hit K or Q.

      That's a rare flop. It was very large bet on flop, perhaps you could have bet 2/3 to see whether villain was trapping you in a check/raise.

      easy fold preflop.

      Flop bet is too large, this type of board I would bet 1/2 pot and give up on a call or raise.

      Huh, didn't watch the position, yeah, easy fold preflop.

      EDIT: This happens to me when I presume people follow basics and raise according to SHC! Bad boy RockEye. :)

      I hadn't realised he was mP2 either. KQ is only played from late position.

      RockEye, I suggest you take a quick read through the basic and bronze sections. It's little mistakes like this that can cost you your profit in SSS. I know this for I have been there myself. :)

      Hello Rock,

      Please fold KQs on Mp2 it's quite a weak hand, AJ would be so-so from Mp2 if you have a tight table.

      Postflop, only PPs will call you which you have 25% equity against at most so I would make a delayed c-bet

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      :tongue: I sometimes slip and can't resist not to stick 100% to SSS, of course sometimes i win but more and more i am playing, more i believe that all this mistakes cost me more then i win playing the right way.

      We all have to learn hard way i guess.
