      Should have shoved the river? btw, idiotic call preflop, but he played ~30 hands and didnt play none of them, which makes his range very tight. My problem is that i dont know how to play overpairs, gonna read article after this session, but still... point out mistakes.

      Regardless of how tight you think your opponent is, I'm never getting cold feet with King Kong preflop for only 100bb. If my opponent shows me aces, I'll just have to say "NH" and get the chips back later.

      Because you'll be out of position, in a multiway pot if you flat call, I prefer a 3-bet to $4.25 or so. If he repops it, 5-bet!! Once you have the betting lead, the hand will play out much differently.

      As played, I think you have to take charge and checkraise the flop, then lead the betting towards an all in by the river.

      Let's see what the judges think :f_biggrin:

      3-bet is a little better pf with KK, although calling is not terrible
      On that low board c/c line is ok. You´re likely ahead but he could easily barrel with air or valuebet AT/JJ/QQ
      You should be ahead on the river, but would he call shove with worse hands? So just c/c imo is fine line.
