      Since he min raise at flop and decided to reraise him, then he reraised me and because i only had to put only 50cets in 3.3$ pot, i guessed my call will work? maybe i should have gone all in though and not reraise.

      Why you play KJo from middle position ? It's a fold.

      Hey Dephy,

      just fold preflop. If you have problems with too tight opponents then just leave the table and look for a table with higher player/flop %. There are plenty tables on nl10, so just look for more profitable ones and leave adjustment for higher limits when you have access to more articles and statistics.

      As played, I fold flop, because villain donks, you don't have a made hand and you are in a 3-way pot.
