      0.05/0.10 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , Q:heart:
      UTG+2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.15, BB calls $0.10, MP1 calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.80) Q:spade: , 5:club: , 8:heart: (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, BB folds, MP1 calls $0.40, MP3 calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($2.00) K:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, MP3 bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, MP1 calls $0.20.

      River: ($2.60) A:heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, MP1 folds, MP3 raises to $1.00, Hero raises to $1.12 (All-In), MP3 calls $0.12.

      Final Pot: $4.84

      According to the SHC, I played this wrong in calling the first raise. Given that, did I go wrong later on, too? Maybe I should have suspected villain's A,K after the final big re-raise and folded instead of pushing?
      Thanks

      Hi Tim64,

      - Pre-flop: Treat the min-raiser as 2 limpers and raise to 0,7. In SSS we never call raises or limp pre-flop, we always play aggressively (with the SHC hands!).

      - Flop: You have Top Pair Top Kicker, that's a made hand and you should bet 2/3 of the pot, which is 0,50 in this case, don't bet only half the pot.

      If your bet = more than half your stack you go all-in directly.

      As played, with K and A on board and 2 opponents you have to fold your hand to any bet.

      Good luck.

      Great advice, thanks!

      Esp the bit about treating the min-raise as two callers.

      Cheers,
