      KQ for me is one of the most difficult hands to play in the SSS chart so this was an interesting session.
      For the first one, I think maybe i should have just went all in on flop. i'm not sure i had enough fold equity with my reraise there. i just did not believe he had the J at all even though i actually would've liked to have had at least A high. (thats my big problem w/ KQ, any A-rag will beat me on a flop like that)
      second hand is standard reraise in late position i think.
      third hand gives me the nuts! woohoo. although the FD was kinda giving me the jitters.
      maybe im starting to like KQ. :D

      *reviewed it again, spotted a mistake-- was MP2 in the third hand so wasnt supposed to be playing that hand at all. its just seeing all those KQs confused me =)

      Hey purplefizz,

      One other thing that i noticed is that in hand 1 you should have raised to 0.40 so nothing major there. But on the flop seeing as you were pf aggressor and against only one villian you should have made a 2/3 cbet of around 0.60.

      Regards,
      -Steve

      1)
      a) raise to 4 bb's as stated by the bul11dog
      b) cbet flop since you're only against one person, as played I would fold after checking

      2) fine

      3) It was nice that they raise pushed you, but I think especially on NL10 you can bet more for value for your first bet on the flop

      even if same hand, please post in different threads

      Ugh 1 hand at a time plz, maximum 2!

      Hand 1: I would cbet/fold because Check/calll or check/raise is bad with 2 overcards!

      Hand 2: Eh why do you post this? This one is good played

      Hand 3: Which position are you? Mp2? FOLD! only play KQ from CO+ in unraised situations preflop

      As played, easiest Bet/Shove on the Flop with the nutz
