      Correct fold....

      Played correctly. KQ is always a fold in SSS unless you are in late position with no raises. Then you raise 4BB's + 1BB for every limper.

      Just because you would of had a FH this time does not mean you will everytime.

      Long term.... Fold. Simple.

      Good fold. Stick to the SHC at all times at this limit.

      Hi ramjack,

      stick to basic SHC on this limit as already previously mentioned. So, KQo should be a fold even if there was no raise in front of you, because it's playable from late position only. Good fold.

      If you, for example would be sitting on legitimate position with KQ, you could disregard minraise, because it's usually a sign of weak hand on low limits, and raise to 6BB + 2BBs for every caller of the minraise. However, I give more respect to minraises that are made in the early position and fold to them unless I have a reraise hand from the SHC.

      PS How do I get my hands evaluated? thanks.


      Just post them here like you did. It takes some time for judges to evaluate hands though, hopefully not too long. :f_grin:

      If you might have any additional questions feel free to click "Advise the judge to have another look" button.

      Regards!
