      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $2.90
      Hero:
      $1.85
      MP3:
      $4.75

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with A:diamond: , K:heart:
      Hero raises to $0.40, 3 folds, MP3 calls $0.40, 2 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.30) 7:heart: , 7:spade: , 6:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.45 (All-In), 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.30

      is it ok to simply push on these type of boards... playing AK and AQ is probably my biggest leak. once iv conbet i am calling and reraised because I am almost always commited. Could you give me some examples of flops I should c/f AK/AQ. Also alot of the time I find funny enough I am ahead with ace high when they ppush back. Does this make it Ev= to always con bet and call reraises on dry boards because you still always have 6 outs and possibilty of been ahead.

      Hey richard1817,

      according to the strategy one should only continue in multiway pots with a made hand which you don't have, so check/fold unless you hit a K or an A would be correct.

      However, considering villains have very wide cold calling range preflop then pushing flop becomes a nice hand, but I think that's a bit too advanced for NL10.

      To your question, I think not c-betting on lower limits against only one opponent is a leak unless you have some reads/decent stats to rely on no matter what the board is. On the other hand, giving up against more than one opponent is usually the optimal way.

      Regards,
