KK in first position

There is not much you can do KK v AA with an opponent who bets like that consistently on a wide range. In saying that: A raise of $20 on the $10 bet on a loose player is kind of pointless and does ...

Should I slow play a set?

Couple of things jump out at me here: 1 - make sure that you are only set-mining small pairs in multi-way pots. Set-mining 22 heads-up is a long-term loser. In your situation it just so happened ...

Small stakes $1-$2 $200 Cap - What to do inside straight flush draw?

It's a pretty easy fold. You've got a bet and a raise in front of you. You aren't guaranteed to have the best flush, so you would need to hit a 9, and hope that no other clubs hits, or hit the 9:clubs:...

1/2 NL Decision

With the Villain playing fairly tight and limping frequently, I would suspect that he has been looking to set mine. He might be willing to call 5BB with any pocket pair (and a few other hands) since ...

Should I go all-in with AAs in this situation?

I'd call once, and then fold if the villain continues to bet. He probably has "trips," maybe jacks. To "protect" yourself, you need to develop a reputation of raising not only with AA, but with lower ...

Should the hero call all-in with second best flush in this situation?

Probably fold before the flop. As for your decision on the turn, I'd suggest a fold. You have V1 who has bet, called a raise, and then bet again (all-in) into 2 people, and you have V2 who has ...

Should the hero call all-in with second best flush in this situation?

Unless the hero has QJ or QT of spades pre-flop, that's when they should have folded. It appears that the tight player in seat 6 min-raised, just to try and get a call from the hero, expecting a from ...

1/3 NL: Was going all-in against villain with AK the best choice?

Pre-flop Villain called a pretty big raise. JJ+ should have raised. I would put them on two paint, AXs, or mid pocket pair. Flop That is priced as a value raise. They could have A8, 88, or A3 and ...

1/3 NL: Was going all-in against villain with AK the best choice?

This is my first time doing hand analysis so forgive me if anything is unclear. You didn't specify the number of callers so its hard to comment on the bet sizing. I assume everything is normal there. ...

KK in first position

Yeah you played it kind of bad. Your first raise was a little small. It should have been in the 30-40 dollar range. Your situation at this point is that the button could be stealing with anything, and ...

KK in first position

It is a good shove. Never fold KK pre-flop. UPDATE: More details. First of all, the math. The probability for getting AA is 1/221 = 0.005 ~ 0.5%. This is the same for getting KK. The odds you are up ...

Should I go all-in with AAs in this situation?

It depends on how much you think this player is capable of running bluffs. If the player is totally incapable of bluffing, it's fine to fold on the flop. However, against a normal player they will ...

Should I slow play a set?

With that many players in the pot you should have raised rather than slow play. A raise of half to 3/4 the pot makes it mathematically a bad decision for anyone on a draw to call. But you could get a ...

1/2 NL Decision

I agree with Paulpro, the only thing I'll add is that I think he could also have AQ until the river shove. From the description, he may try to get value on 2 streets, but it is rare to have a 1/2 ...
