      Hello there!

      UTG was unknown.
      I don't think I was wrong to raise, and to go all-in on the flop either.
      But should I have pushed pre-flop? Yes I'm doubting because the result of the hand was ugly, of course.

      Thanks.

      no I think you played this hand correctly. You hit TPTK on flop which in most SSS cases is a very good thing. However shit does happen every once in a while

      Hi Rcoudene,

      I reraise minraisers to Potsized and with a minraise + caller + a 18bb stack, I am inclined to push this preflop because if you just 3bet this guy to like $4~, you would have to shove any flop

      As played, nh

      Best regards,
      Gerv
