            Hi painofscream,

            I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

            I like your preflop isolation raise, and I also like your flop raise as a semi-bluff with a K and 8 for a straight. But I think the mistake is raising OTT. Now that the board pairs, our relative draw strength goes way down because the nuts is no longer a straight because we are beat to a full house. Given that they bet so small, I would elect to call with the right odds and to keep the pot small for when we miss or when we hit and are beat.

                              Hi painofscream! Before we look at your hand, let me recommend that you stick to tables where all the seats are actually filled. There were several empty seats here. This forces you to play a lot more hands which in turn makes it harder to be profitable. From the Holdem Lobby you can adjust the Filter to only show tables with 8 players. That way, when you sit down, the table will be full Opening from the cut off with KQo is good and you betsize was perfect. You get one caller who has position on you. We need to be careful with this. You miss the flop, but the ace is a good scare card. We can assume that much of the villain's calling range consists of smaller pocket pairs, weak aces, suited connectors and broadway cards. In other words it is more likely the flop helped you than that it helped him. Therefore, following through with a c-bet is good. I would suggest making it a bit larger though, about 70% of the pot. This will give him poor odds to call if he is chasing a flush. NOTE: If the villain calls your bet, you should check-fold the rest of the streets. He won't fold and he probably has you beat. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
