      What is with your passive plays with AKs and AQs? Raise it up preflop... you'll be OOP postflop without initiative otherwise.

      My god... how can you limp here?

      First off, you should never, and I mean never open-limp ANY HAND, especially not AQs. Just raise to 20c, I don't know wtf you were thinking here.

      If you play like this pre-flop, check it to the CO player to... you do not have initiative, why do you bet the flop? I would check/raise & go broke so the result probably remains the same but I think you played this hand really really bad.

      I know it is a bad play.

      Was really dumb.

      Thanks for your comments this will really help me.

      If i have raised and he has 3bet what should i do?

      And also should i always raised when there is no caller behind me and i'm on middle position + i have playable hand?

      Hi,


      For the hand itself i'd say pretty much the same things as Mstlc, but nicer ;)

      1) Depending on how aggressive he is it's possible to 4bet/call AQs against his 65 or so big blinds stack if he's some kind of maniac, but mostly you should just fold to avoid trouble.

      2) I'd like to answer "yes" but that likely depends on what you call a "playable hand". At microstakes unless you're really comfortable postflop is marginal spots you shouldn't play that many hands, it's gonna get you into more trouble than it's worth. pairs, decent broadways, decent suited connectors should be plenty already from early/middle position in FR.


      Hope it helps.
