      It is what it is. No info/stats. Just a bad feeling
      Bad fold? Perhaps a push?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $9.45
      MP3:
      $2.00
      CO:
      $5.96
      BU:
      $7.52
      SB:
      $4.36
      BB:
      $5.61
      UTG2:
      $10.28
      MP1(Hero):
      $9.80


      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K, K.
      CO posts deadblind, UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, 2 folds, CO calls $0.15, BU calls $0.25, SB folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($1.05) T, 7, 6 (4 players)
      BB bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.80, CO raises to $1.40, BU folds, BB folds, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.05.

      always interesting to look back awhile after posting a hand
      looking back now, I'd say this was A,10 or a flush draw
      only reason to fold is to a made straight or set

      i think in retrospect I should have raised/push?

      Hi,


      Raise bigger preflop, $0.5.

      Considering that all those guys are ~halfstacks, and as such immediately bad players, i'm not folding KK even tho the board is less than ideal.. Make a potsize raise, call shoves and be happy with it.


      Hope it helps.

      I forgot to mention I did the 2.5 bb pre flop because i was doing one of the full tilt academy challenges where chris ferguson advises varying bet sizes by position but keeping them the same from each position regardless of cards

      is this a really bad thing to experiment with at NL 10?
      I think it is probably better to make people pay to see flops

      Hi,


      I agree that the idea has merit, but imo it's more profitable to just push your skill edge at microstakes by forcing people to get into bigger pots with you, and thus make more costly mistakes that win you money.


      Hope it helps.
