      .

      by the way this aint me moaning ive learned to take the bad beats. my point of posting these are to show it happens to us all.i see some weird chat about how pokerstars is fixed but bad beats happen and we need to deal with them sensibly.today for example ive had many bad beats in tournies, KK busted with 4/2 and a good few others apart from the ones above that hurt.

        You're right, but you have a serious bet tell in the KK hand. On the flop, a standard bet against one opp is 1/2 pot. If you keep your bets standard, it will help to conceal your cards from the opp. The moment that I saw the hand and the overbet, I knew you had a big pair.

                    Calling a shove with AJs is normally a bit light. If the opp is extremely loose, I'd consider it and probably go.. but against a tighter opp, it's not strong enough to call with.

                    Also, at 400/800, instead of open-raising to 3x, I'm opening to 2.5x or even 2.. As the blinds go higher, the smaller amount that I'll open for. Normally at 100/200, I'll lower to 2.5x+1BB for each limper, and I had lowered it to 2.+1BB for each limper at 1k/2k, but have been experimenting with dropping it as low as 300/600 and it seems to be giving me a bit more playability.

                      . yeah i wouldnt normally call with aj after his shove it was the $0.11 $100 gtd tourney, i had made my 11 cents back and blinds were taking big chunks out of me so thought i should call.was hoping for a fold with my 1st raise though lol.ive been talking to a friend who plays poker about blinds and he says he raises 2.5 x the blind too. something i need to start implicating i think.umbup:

                        When the blinds are lower, I start out at 3BB+1BB for each limper, then lower to 2.5, then 2.2, then I've been messing around with even a min.. but ONLY do the min if this is a considerable % of my stack.

                        When the stacks are larger, I want to be using at least 2.5.
