      Known players:

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7:diamond: , 9:diamond:
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $1,00, BU folds, Hero calls $0,90, BB folds.

        What do you think about my call preflop? I like to call one raise very often with suited small cards.

      Flop: ($2,25) K:diamond: , 8:diamond: , T:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1,60, Hero raises to $5,20, CO raises to $13,30, Hero raises to $43,69 (All-In), CO calls $10,03 (All-In).

        Is it better just call in the long run or raise in this spot?

      Turn: ($69,27) 4:heart:
      River: ($69,27) 2:club: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $69,27

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows high card king with ten kicker (7d 9d)
      CO shows two pairs, kings and tens (Ts Kc)

      CO wins with two pairs, kings and tens (Ts Kc)

      If you are playing this hand here, you could hardly wish for a better flop.
      Once villain re-reraises you know he is playing for his whole stack so its a question of whether you want to gamble.
      I think on this flop i would be happy to play for stacks.

      being 100bb deep I'd play the same.
      We usually suggest people to play monster draws as strong made hands.
      When you raise u are getting FE which means sometimes can take the pot right there.
      If he 3bets you are happy to get the money in when you have around 50% equity of the pot.
