      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $5.25
      BB:
      $5.09
      Hero:
      $10.00

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K:club: , A:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 4 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB raises to $1.00, Hero calls $0.60, SB calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($3.00) 4:heart: , Q:club: , 6:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $3.00, Hero raises to $6.00, SB folds, BB calls $1.09 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($11.18) K:diamond:
      River: ($11.18) 7:spade: (1 players)


      Final Pot: $11.18

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of kings (Kc Ac)
      BB shows a pair of aces (Ah As)

      BB wins with a pair of aces (Ah As)


      I'm not sure if I made the right decision - I had a flush draw and I also had the chance of getting a pair of aces or kings as long as he didnt have tripple queens or pocket aces or kings.

      I think I'd just get this hand sorted out preflop. If you think BB is capable of squeezing I like to shove. His AF looks like he could be capable so I probably just take this line for a 50BB stack. If you knew he was nitty you could fold - but I wouldn't just call.

      As played - with the dead money in the pot you get the right odds to go broke against AQ,QQ+.

      Sounds good. Jam preflop unless he usually never raises and as played you can't fold on the flop with 2 overs and the nut flushdraw.


      Hope it helps.
