      Ok.. i normally don't do this,but on this particular tabled was a low risk of being raised so i took a shoot...a bad one..
      on the flop i had the nutflushdraw and the nutstraight draw...is it ok to get it all in in this situation...i dont know the %
      What do you think?

      Don't limp with KQ from that position. In a limped pot I think you don't have the edge to know when to fold your TP.

      You need 45% to call and you have them. Most often you have to call the rest on the turn so I like your push.

      If you want to avoid this situations just fold preflop.

      Hi,


      I'd just raise preflop, KQs is a good hand that can flop a lot of decent stuff to play with initiative against bad players and good players alike.

      As played on the flop you have nutted outs against everything you're never a huge dog, it's a clear shove with any kind of fold equity. It's actually doubtful you have any when UTG 4x-overbet it in that spot, but you never know with those nl2 fish, so when in doubt I'd just go broke too. We make a ton of money if he's just randomly monkeying around without Ax+ or ends up overbet/folding.


      Hope it helps.
