      Hand was converted using Tonnek's Cake hand converter
      0.10/0.20 (9 handed)
      Known Players:

      Preflop: ($0.3) Hero is UTG2 with K K.
      Hero raises to 0.80, UTG3 folds, MP1 folds, MP2 folds, MP3 folds, CO folds, BU calls 0.80, SB folds, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.9) Q,A,9 (2 players)
      Hero bets 1.20, BU is all in 3.21, Hero calls 2.01

      Turn: ($8.32) 2 (2 players)

      River: ($8.32) 8 (2 players)

      Q: How would you play this flop? I think he must have some picture cards.. so he is probably on some SD mb FD too. Well, I know that my 2/3 pot size bet was too low so I should bet pot size and then call his shove, right? I guess he can only fold/shove with his short stack.. I think he doesnt have an Ace so KK is favourite.. :f_biggrin:

      btw as played.. my call after his shove was ok, wasnt it? :) We want to be AI on this flop if he has just some FD, SD, Qx coz KK have something like 55%/45% even vs FD+SD.

      omfg.. 5 times edit coz Im retard who doesnt know how to write on keyboard ^^

      Hey DMS :)

      First of all, I like the converter you used for cake poker so I definitly pass this around - thanks!

      Preflop is pretty standard but I seriously Bet/Fold the Flop. The majority of his range contains Ax if not Q9,99,QQ,J:dT,Q:dJ .

      It is true that you are ahead 55% against the last 2 but those 2 are only 2 combo's while AQ has a total of 9 combo's which mean that there are more AQ hands possible than J:dT

      So once again, bet folding is better than bet/calling:
      Board: A Q 9

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 76.002 % 75.972 % 0.059 % 23.969 % TT-99, AKs, AJs-ATs, Q9s, JdTd, AQo-A9o
      Player 2: 23.998 % 23.969 % 0.059 % 75.972 % K:hK
      I throw in some random TT, AceKing suited in case he is jamming with those equity hands as well.

      Best regards,
