  • 2nl cash table, Questions about 3 hands that I played

    Okay, I have three hands, the first one I decided to call because the OP's were calling a lot and not really playing tight, so I thought it was worth the shot, what do you guys think: The second one I tried to follow the chart, should I've folded as I did? Lastly, I lost with pocket KK, it was a tough call, but did I played it right? Thanks

      1st hand:

      - never ever limp on the button. It accomplishes nothing.
      - normally, playing a top pair so aggressively (especially if this is just a pair of eights) is a substandard move. However, 3-handed, it is not a bad idea to play some marginal hands stronger than usually.

      2nd hand:

      - ATo is not really a raising hand. Calling and seeing the flop cheaply would be best.
      - folding on the flop was correct.

      3rd hand:

      - your bet on the flop was too small. You don't want to allow your opponent to chase a potential draw cheaply.
      - you definitely have to fold on the turn when the villain makes a raise this big. There is nothing you can beat. and you are dead to a heart and maybe a king. Fold and save yourself 50 BB.
