IIRC...yes, an EP limped, I opened to $20 and the SB 3b, EP called, I called. SB is an aggressive reg, had me covered. EP wasn't much of a threat, limp/calling often, probably had about $1k to start.

like what? I'll try to fill in the blanks if I can

I'm sitting with $800 and SB has me covered, can't remember EP's stack.

I open to $20 with AhJh and SB raises to $85. I have position on both him and another caller in EP. Flop is low cards with two hearts. SB leads for $125. EP calls and so do I.

Tc on the turn, no straight draw. SB bets $325 (1/2 pot). EP calls and I fold,


I have $950 in CO and Button has me covered. As4s and I call $20 and 4 go to the flop of JsQsTc. Checked to B and he bets $150. I call along with one other. Ac turn and again it's checked to B and he bets $235. I don't think the A helped me here and with a 4-liner on the board there's no reason to do anything but call, right? Pot is ~$530 on the turn and $1,000 when it comes back to me and I make the call.

Thanks to everyone for the comments- very helpful to confirm that I should have sized up pf, the check wasn't as bad as I thought it might have been on this board, and the turn fold had merit.

Post | Madone52 posted in NLHE: trouble with KK

Live $3/5 hand from yesterday that I know I misplayed and want some feedback on:

effective stack: $1500

K♠K♣ in SB

UTG +1 raises to $15 and two call, then I raise to $60, which IMO was my first mistake- should have sized up to ~$100 to thin the field a bit more. Once the EP called the others were more likely to join in, and by the time it got to the button he only needed to call $45 with $180 in the pot.

$245 pot pre-flop

  • J♣T♠6♠ and I check- 2nd mistake. With a connected board like that I just didn't have a good sizing in mind to c-bet and feared getting check-raised and folding. It was checked to the button and he bet $150. I thought I recognized him as an aggressive player, but wasn't sure. I made the call and the other two folded.

$545 pot

  • 9♠ turn. I check and he bets $325, I fold. At that point it felt like a flopped set or two pair, and I didn't like not having the nut flush draw (I later learned from another player that he had folded the A♠).

I appreciate any comments on how I could have played this differently.
