      My first steps on NL50, and lol, it even wasn't that bad as I expected :)
      Need to post some confusing hands.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $11.20
      CO:
      $12.55
      BU:
      $58.20

      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:club: , Q:diamond: . CO posts a blind of $0.50.
      3 folds, CO checks, BU calls $0.50, Hero raises to $3.00, BB folds, CO raises to $12.55 (All-In), BU folds, Hero calls $8.20 (All-In), CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Flop: ($23.40) A:diamond: , Q:heart: , 7:diamond:
      Turn: ($23.40) J:diamond:
      River: ($23.40) A:spade: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $23.40

      According to raise:stack ratio it's a fold but he insta pushed and I guess he treated me like a dead money stealer. What do you think?

      I would stick to raise: stack ratio against unkown, because he could be trapping with a decent hand and therefore you need enough equity...

      ...or shove anyway and make a note. ^^

      Hi Jenoc

      check/3bet as CO poster is often a trap as I do it sometimes as well =D

      Folding is okay but calling here you have to ask yourself: 'What's his check/3bet range as poster??'

      It can be very wide but even with KQ, it is sometimes not good enough. Ofcourse the only hands you should be worried about is KK+,AK & AQ, the rest you can beat + I like to know why he played like this.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
