      Hi,
      With a raise and reraise in front, was it correct to lay down top pair top kicker on the flop?

      Thanks!

      Don't play SSS on shorthanded tables, it's not profitable. In case other players were just sitting out don't mind this.

      As played, you have made hand on the flop and two players willing to pay you off, therefore go broke and expect paycheck. ;)

      Unfortunately, I have to play on Titan at the moment, I saw posts saying that full ring tables are too tight there to play SSS (and that's my experience too). Those posts recommended to play 6-handed tables, so that's what I tried today. I'm looking forward to leaving Titan as soon as I clear my bonus... pity I already had accounts on Stars and FTP before registering at PokerStrategy

      In this situation, I just had a feeling that someone had a 6 :) but isn't it reasonable to assume that if someone reraises a pot-sized bet with one opponent still to act, he has at least a set?

      Thanks!

      I'm not sure what to say to you, because I never played on Titan, so maybe someone else can share some experience with you, but if SH tables don't work out for you I think it's still better to play FR with 2-3 shorties than SH tables. But if it works for you, cheers. As Phil Gordon wrote in his book, "I don't have to be the best player at the table to make profit, I only need to be better than one." ;)

      About the hand, on the micros I think villains can also have a worse Qx or FD or even some PP against which you're favorite, but let's see also what judge has to say.

      I don't get it, was it wrong to fold here or not?

      Yes, it was, hero should put all his money in the pot.
