      Play hand

      MP2 33/23/0.7, MP3 unknown

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, Q.
      MP2 raises to $2.00, MP3 calls $2.00, 3 folds, Hero raises to $7.00, MP2 raises to $14.00, MP3 calls $7.50(All-In), Hero calls $7.00.

      I was going to fold until I saw that MP3 was all in and I had good odds.

      Flop: ($37.75) 8, J, K (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $15.00, Hero raises to $40.40, [I][COLOR=grey]

      Why would he bet here w AK, KK, or AA? I have top pair and the pot is too big to fold I think. I can't just call because I'm committed so I shove.

      I prefer fold pf, since against JJ+/AK you have 29% equity
      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 29.330% 28.90% 00.43% 14844144 222255.00 { KcQc }
      Hand 1: 70.670% 70.24% 00.43% 36080466 222255.00 { JJ+, AKs, AKo }

      and since you´re likely going on the flop if you hit top pair, then you face very bad implied odds.
      c/shove on the flop is likely better since you called pf, but considering JJ+/AK range, you only beat QQ and I´m not sure how often he´d bet out himself ip
