      Hello, I have a question about the starting hand chart..
      It's just not clear to me.. for example:
      I'm in late position with KQs and three players before me has called. What should I do? The starting hand chart says I should call.. if "one player called" but what if more than one players called? and in general in the chart there are only three options below "actions before you" [all players fold; one player called; one player raised] but what if more people call before me? It's probably silly but I don't really get it.

      Now my guess (and my personal opinion) is that this is supposed to mean "if one (or more) player calls" - so basically you've got the option "everyone folds" "call from another player" and "raise from another player".

      I will double check with my colleagues from Education, but since it's already quite late, you might have to wait until tomorrow for an answer :)

      I would be thankful.
      And another example: I'm in late position with AKo preflop and two people raise before me, still I should raise? Wouldn't be better if I just call because someone may has a pair or re-raise me or go all in? Or even if they just call I hit the flop just 1/3 of the times right? Would it be profitable to raise as it says in the starting hand chart? I'm just thinking that it would be risky to re-raise since one of them may has a pair, go all in or hit something on the flop.
      I have these questions in my head since I start playing with BSS .. and I really would like to clear these questions. I would highly appreciate your help. :)

      Hi mustafov,

      my guess was right - the starting hand chart will be changed accordingly :)

      As for your second question, since it's very specific, I kindly advise you to create a new thread in our BSS section.
