Your raise size pre is pretty standard, but given you read on the UTG willing to play anything, I would raise slightly larger. Flop: shove is standard, any bet is effectively a shove anyways since you cannot bet/fold. You have a SPR(Stack to pot ratio) of 1.16 to the BB and greater than 1:1 against the UTG. Checking the flop is just bad.

As valentin said - A lot of players will say checking is a bad play So I will try to justify that point :). My plan would be to bet a bit more than 50% on flop and push any turn. Since noone 4 bet preflop on a loose table its safe to assume noone has AA,KK (and probably JJ). This means that there is almost no hand from the tight player you are affraid ...

Concidering this is a very loose table, it's hard to tell what to do. You could try to shut them down on the flop and bet very high so they fold and scoop a nice pot as it is on the flop. However, sometimes in this position I choose to check the flop because with a lot of draws out there I would just know that they would call and that would be wasted ...

Not sure exactly what game you're playing. Anyway, as far as I've always seen, bb means big blinds and BB means big bets. In most poker variants, the betting size doubles at some point in the hand. For example, in limit hold'em, on the turn and river, the bet size is doubled. The size of the bet on the turn and river is the big bet size. You must be playing ...

Hero's flop bet is terrible, IMO. You made only bad arguments for betting on the flop. Do you want villain to fold on the flop? Really? why? Which hands do you want him to fold? pre-flop I'm almost always calling villain's 3bet (depends on table conditions, which you didn't specify). KQs is a good hand, which does well in this spot, both if more players ...

Should Hero have called villain's pre-flop raise, re-raised, or folded? The only thing you can do is call. You've labelled Villian as tight-aggressive and he's made a small reraise after you've opened under the gun. This is a fairly strong sign of strength. Let's look at your options: Jamming: KQs is doing badly against the average TAG players range in ...

You shouldn't be choosing a starting hand because it's been X amount of time since the last time you played a hand. The primary goal in poker is to win chips. You achieve this goal by: Identifying your opponents strategy. Determine, and implement, the maximally exploitative response. So, before you even sit down at a table, whether it's online or live, ...

My casino allows a 2x straddle anywhere but the button. Plus, you're allowed to either post w/ 1/2 a bb dead or straddle live when you miss the blinds (e.g., when you take a brake from the table). Dealers tend to encourage straddling, presumably b/c it builds bigger pots. The consensus of the regulars seems to be that straddling is always better than ...

You definitely should not "gamble" every time with a top pair but if you often play against "loose bots" you should be prepared to do it more often. For the specific hand I think the raise preflop is good. The only argument to make it bigger would be that you are out of position but even then I would not make it more than 0.7$ (0.6 is perfectly fine) On ...
