      Titan No-Limit Hold'em, $0.05/$0.10 (Titan HH Converter by Kreatief)

      Button ($11.26) (Hero)
      SB ($8.28)
      BB ($9.90)
      MP2 ($5.34)
      MP3 ($12.05)
      CO ($10.49) stats: 26/9/1.09/26 (from 100 hands)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with K:spade: , K:heart:
      MP2 calls $0.10, 1 folds, CO raises to 0.3, Hero raises to 0.9, 3 folds, CO calls $0.60,

      Flop: 3:spade: , J:spade: , 2:diamond: ( $2.05 )
      CO bets $2.00, Hero raises All-In $10.36, CO raises All-In $9.59,

      Turn: 4:spade: ( $22 )

      River: T:diamond: ( $22 )

      Final Pot: $21.00

      I think my all-in move was wrong, because only better hands will call in this situation.
      But i'm still not sure what to do in this situation where even with just a minraise my stack will be less than the pot on the next street.
      What do u think?

      no nh sir.

      on a reraised pot u go broke with kings.

      the push on the flop is ok. u must protect against the flush draw.

      when he had jacks or aces then its unlucky not more.

      Hi kesgab!

      I agree with Mephisto87. You have to protect your hand against flush draws. There are only two reasonable hands according to the preflop action which have you beat: JJ and AA. Against all other hands you are way ahead: get your money in :)

      Good luck at the tables!

      Thanks. It's good to hear that i didn't make a mistake :)

      In this particular hand, he had pocket twos and beat me with the set.
      He was in the cutoff so he could raise any pair and call for set value.
      Should i have thought about it?

      Usually you don't raise 22 from CO after a limper from UTG. And his call for setvalue seems wrong aswell since neither of you had 15x0.9=13.5

      You are right, but if he has a set you are going broke anyway. You cannot fold kings in this spot. You have to raise on the flop which commits you to the pot anyway.

      Good luck at the tables!
