      Opponent raises a lot of hands preflop , his potsize bet and call of my reraise on the flop confused me.Then a flush becomes possible (although now that i think about it i doubt he would call such a reraise with a flush draw) , and his minbets confused me. Should i consider them as total sign of weakness and respond with a big reraise or all-in?

      A very troublesome hand.My opponent is tight and his reraise represents a hand. I think after his action on the flop we can rule out QQ or worse , so his only possible holdings are AA or AK. Can i really lay down my set of kings there? If not , how should i play the hand?

      This opponent is very tight , but over the last few days he has beaten me in every single large pot. Might he be exploiting that fact , or is this a good fold in any case?

      Although my stats on opponent are tight , i saw him pull this play 3 times within 5 minutes , always raising to 2 dollars on an unraised pot where he was in late position. Is my play good there , according to that read?

      1) push the turn. you cant get away from this anymore, you are commited. by the river you will be broke against every better hand cause any better hand will just put you allin the river and you have to call. your goal should be to maximize profit against worse hands like a flushdraw or Qx...

      2) whooo.. what do i see here? ;)

      first of all, you should reraise preflop. make it $9. if not, you have to check/raise the flop. check/allin seems good to me here. you cant laydown set of kings here, never.

      3) check the turn and hope he checks behind. if he bets you should probably fold. if this happened several times before, you contibet the flop and c/f the turn, you should call almost any betsize... but without history most of the time just fold.

      4) $2 on the flop. against a tight player i like bet/folding the turn here. if you check, id call a bet. c/f seems to weak. hell play KJ, KT etc the same way. but bet/folding seems good to me since he wont raise a worse hand. if he raises your bet, he ll have you beat most of the time and you can fold.

      5) very easy raise preflop!

      postflop. hm well, i dont like going broke against JJ-AA. i'd just b/f the flop. if he has a stronger hand, he ll probably raise and you can relatively easy fold.
