      I'm a fish myself (not trying to fool anyone :) ) and I'm playing SSS on lowest party poker limits.

      I had back to back KK and min raised them both times (I know that's not the best line) and everyone folded :(

      Not 10 hands later i had KK again and I min raised and it resulted in another steal :(

      Of course when I play QQ for full value i get sucked out with A2 (his 2's hit trips on the board :) )

      another fun day in the life of poker :)

      Shit happens mate.

      Keep going, I don't have much of a DB standing at barely 6k hands, but says that even with coolers and sucky hands where everyone folds, 50% of my winnings are made of AA/KK.

      Sounds like you needed to change tables. Please don't minraise KK, you're losing a ton of value by doing that. Especially if you Open raise other hands bigger and someone gets the read on you that you only minraise KK.

      Could be worse, getting AA in Big Blind and everyone folds.

      Happens all the time!

      The same thing with QQ or KK also.

      Haha, yeah... I hate that... especially if I'm short stack in some MTT. I see the Aces as the perfect opportunity to double up. Everyone starts folding, it gets to the late positions and I scream - STEAL, STEAL, STEAL.... and everyone folds ?( ?( ?(

      Oh, it happens time after time, just multitable. My All-IN EV line is runnig up and away from real money won upwards for some time. Its just variance! (i hope :f_p: )
