      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:spade: , Q:heart:
      6 folds, SB raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.80 (All-In), SB folds.

      Final Pot: $2.20


      Was this move just too risky? Probably I was a little frustrated by now. I'm not sure why I thought SB was trying to steal the BB - just a hunch, I guess, nor whether the fact he folded proves I was right. I wouldn't have re-raised with a nothing hand, in case SB called, but was this just a maniac move? Thanks.

      Hi Tim,

      With KQ it is a risky move because against Ax you are behind, against PP you are flipping and against AQ+,KK+ you are screwed.

      Nevertheless standard resteal is AQ+,99+ to avoid high variance spots and marginally -EV moves.
