      My biggest loses are when I have monster and make raise even tho its 6bb or 8bb opponents often make calls with their 44 or 88 and hit their set on flop!
      How do you spot the set and how do get out of such situations by not loosing with youre KK more than half of youre full stack stack? Thanks!

      Sets are hard to spot, sometimes you can figure it out but it's impossible to tell when a player has one, since he might play an overpair or top-pair with top kicker or top two exactly the same way.

      Thanks! i agree but there for i shouldn't play it weak only because he might have me beat cos it will harm my game overall but yes i should watch out if he re-raises me or goes all-in with big stack!
