      Hello happyteerak,

      According to the SHC, the KQs hand is not a hand to call or reraise with. As a matter of fact I think calling is bad anyways for 20-25bb because you do not have the Iniative which is an important part of playing profitably poker

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Having intiative is exactly why I asked this. For sure KQ is too weak to play against a raise in most situations, but in this case I played it anyways with the loose raiser in the pot again! So should I have just raised him as much as I could on the draw, or as played after hitting is better? Maybe I could have gotten more money from the calling station as well?

      If he is loose I would reraise him preflop ;)

      yes as played I would shove it all-in
