      I was actually playing SSS, but already tripled up and was still playing a free round until the blinds arrived. Was it right to call the all-in ? I was really scared to make this call as it was above my bankroll and I was just about ready to leave the table before this hand arrived, and seeing the preflop play, I thought QQ was more than possible.

      Ps : the flopbet was ok to protect against flushdraws, no ?

      U really shouldn't post the results. The whole thing with poker is that it is a game of imperfect information, so we want to know as little as u knew when u were playing. The fact that u posting the result suggest that something unusual is going on, so even if I don't read the result I become biased. As to the hand: since I know the result all I can say is nice hand. The decision here depends heavily on opponent. On NL10 I call such overbets by default against unknown opponent. On NL25 I would be more careful.

      Gaianst most opponents it is a clear call on the flop at these limits. I have seen many guys doing that with AQ or a flush draw.

      I would have folded, because usually opponent will have atleast set, but because he didn't re-raise you preflop I'd put him on AQ, JJ, TT (99-88) and on flop he might have had flush draw and wanted to test he's luck or if you were bluffing. Hmm... so now I'm confused, generally if he isn't tricky player then you should call. Woah now I thaught that 77 could be in his calling range (55 definetly not) depends how loose he is, so I'll go with what I said at the beginning, you should fold (and bet more on the turn).

      How do I fold and bet more on the turn ? :P
      And I don't get it, you put him on a lower hand yet you'd fold ?

      Hi SonicXT!

      I think timukasr is kind of confused ;) You have to go all-in here. He can easily have a queen or a flushdraw. Get your money in! Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!

      the possible thing is if he is pushing you with 2 pair but I think it was a clearly good call since on the higher limits you will not find yourself in that kind of action as often as you can find yourself on lowerlimits.

      About me: I am doing good guys, I withdraw my money on the pp and now building my bankroll on the other ways :P I have about 300$ now :) .

      What's with the preflop raise size? You're giving away info if you raise 1.1 with monster and 1.0 with everything else.

      I compensate for the MP2 paying a sit-in blind by adding half a blind for it.
      Coming to think of it, it was his first hand at the table and he lost his whole buy-in, lol ...

      Ok, that's sounds reasonable, although i add one full blind per poster.
