    You put all of your money in while you were ahead. No problem there.

    KJo might have been a fold preflop from your UTG position. Especially so if this was a league game. But you were rivered. There's not much to analyze.

      YEP UTG WITH KJ OFF IS A FOLD AT THIS POINT IN A LEAGUE GAME
      THERE'S A LOT OF TIME TO GET YOUR CHIPS IN WITH SOMETHING MUCH BETTER

      GOOD LUCK

        The way you play I don't mind you playing KJ here. Playing LAG is just fine if you know what you're doing. KJ is a more dangerous hand than many, but if you're going to raise 94 you might as well raise KJ.

        You were against a twerp who called down with ace high on a board where ace high is virtually never good. You got it in way ahead, and he sucked out. Remember that guy and value bet him to death next time you see him. He can't river an ace every time. Don't be results-oriented, you were the real winner in this hand.

        There's more than one way to play guys. With all the nits in PSO, playing LAG has a lot of merit if you pay attention and don't overvalue your hands.

          KJ off UTG is a instafold 99% of the time.
          You will get yourself into more trouble with this hand than it is worth.

            I'm assuming this was a league game.

            That early in one of them, KJo from UTG needs to be a fold preflop. The whole goal in these is to make it as far as you can without busting.... and you do not want any busts before the top 20%, that way you're always going to get + league points for it and above all, get ITM as much as possible.. even if you only have 1 chip left when you get ITM.

            Once you're in the hand, if you're going to push, I'd have done it on the flop. That way you don't let someone develop a draw on the turn or you don't let someone draw at a broadway straight for free. You got extremely unlucky by getting outdrawn by a player that should have never been in the hand after the flop, and pushing there might have gotten them to drop.

                Opening KJ utg with a 23bb stack is not good LAG play.

                And vs. someone who's opening as wide as 94 and is known to barrel air, ace high will actually be good unimproved a fair bit. The villains line is high variance to be sure, but if the OP is playing as described then the villains line is not that out of line.

                  Why not open any two as a steal from early position against a table of nits?

                  Also, while he will open really wide, and C-bet all the time, once his flop bet gets called/raised he generally knows to shut it down. If he's still betting on the turn, I'd have to put him on some kind of decent made hand.

                  Also, based on M-zone theory, isn't this exactly where you're supposed to be playing pure high card hands? M between 10 and 20?

                    -The hands that will call you will often have you dominated when you hold KJ

                    -You'll often be required to barrel when you do get called, but on a 23 bb stack you're not deep enough to barrel and still escape when they don't go away.

                    -In response to your specific question, opening any 2 as a steal is not good LAGging. Not all "trash" hands are created equally. Vs. a tight opponent I'd rather be stealing with 97o than KJo for example, since when the tight guy gives us action 97 will often be live and KJ often dominated.

                    -OP didn't say anything about this being a table of nits?? I think someone surmised this was a PSO league game but at this blind level there are still tons of loose and poor players in. Case in point, villains play is anything but nitty in this hand.

                    All my opinion anyway, fwiw.

                      how often does stealing work early in a pso game (and it is for sure a pso game) all thats going to happen is an early exit 80% of the time. so if you are looking to move up the leader board you have to fold just my opinion

                      good luck

                        Fair enough. My experience has been that PSO is mostly polarized between total gamblers/loose bad players and total nits. As long as you can tell who's who it's fairly easy to find spots.

                        I agree I'd rather steal with 96 than KJ because if called I will almost always have two live cards and know where I stand. Still, if you know that people are going to fold KQ, AT, even AJ to your steal raise, and will only have to worry about a very tiny range of hands when it comes to the flop. Granted this is obviously not a table full of nits considering this guy's play.

                        However just because I'd prefer to steal with 96, does that mean I won't/shouldn't steal with a couple of broadways? Say 96 is ranked 60/100 on my scale, and KJ is ranked 50/100. If I'm in a spot where I'm playing anything better than a 40 on my scale, while I'd prefer a 60 to a 50, a 50 is still good enough, no?

                        Plus I guess there's the problem that raise-folding a hand with as much strength as KJ is worse than doing it with a weaker hand which you won't feel obligated to play.

                            Absolutely agree. Which is another reason I think this is a bad open... likely some mix of both at this stage and being UTG we don't have a specific spot we can target.

                              If I understand LAG play correctly, it's just not something that should be in your arsenal unless you're medium- or deep-stacked. Stealing can be, but you need position to do that. So, since the OP is OOP, they can't steal. And since they're short, they can't play LAG. That means KJo should be a fold preflop, regardless of the OP's personal style and level of skill, imo.
