    Hi mj4tw!

    The problem here is with the betting. The preflop raise is way too small. A standard raise is to 3X the previous bet (up to a pot-sized raise if that amount is larger). By betting less, the opp gets the correct odds to see the flop... then like many players out there, won't ever fold a pair.

    The key here is to bet more preflop.

      ty for the answer it is true the 3bet was small
      but honestly i dont think he would fold the hand unless i was going to shove preflop
      & its not just this
      people callin their stack with 98 or Q8 something againts my AKs AQs & win [ & its not like they are short & commited to the pot ]
      i remember a hand early stage of the tournament when i 3-bet the guy with KK he shoved with 89o
      & he got flush with his 9
      where is justice

        If they get the right odds to be in the hand.... they should be.

        Also, every hand is going to lose a given % of the time.
