      My first session in NL50, took only one table to get the feeling of NL50.
      found pocket KK with a 3/2 stack. This hand was played against an unknown villain. I missed the first limp so I raise it up only to 4bb. think it's a standard go broke on the flop.

      Hi maya1984,

      Nice hand! He might call you with pocket pairs like or suited connectors 65s+. He will often call with over pairs or straight draws so you are often ahead. If he does show 88 or 77 or suckout with 9 10 then don't worry. You'll often win in this spot.

      Good luck

      Hi Maya,

      I really go to $2.25 (Pot) or $2.5 with KK here preflop.

      The Flop is nice and his donkbet makes me smile so I just stick it in directly since a $7.5 raise is more than 50% of your $12 stack!

      On the other hand you can call and evaluate Turn, that's my other line

      Best regards,
      Gerv
