  • How would u have played this hand?

    Hello guys. I'm not sure if i played the following hand right.
    9 man SNG, 7 players eliminated, we were heads up. Stack sizes were even (6725), the blinds were 200/400. The opponent was somewhat passive.
    - Preflop: I was dealt Kc5d on the BTN and opened for 1125, he calls.
    - The flop comes 5KKr, he checks, I bet 1000, he calls (I thought he put me on a bluff).
    - The turn comes 3, I bet 2000 and he shoves, It made my head spin since he was not a raiser. I was pot committed so I called. The river is a 10. Turned pocket 3s giving him a full house. Did the hand played itself and was it inevitable, or did i value bet too big, did i get unlucky... Was this fullhouse impossible to read, i mean i thought the turn card was a brick and he was floating me, putting me on a complete bluff. I was hoping he had pocket Aces.
    Just wanted to know how u guys would’ve played this hand to avoid getting destaked. Thanks a lot.
    PEACE OUT!

    With the cards you put in the post, you had a higher full house. The opp could easily call with 33 preflop HU (could have also shoved on you). When you flop a full house, I like your 1k bet. Since two K on board, the opp most likely isn't putting you on one.
    When they get a full house on the turn, their shove is probably going to be a full house and 33 is definitely in their range from the way they played it. Since you had a larger full house, seeing them shove is a jackpot, because you call and win the hand.

      Now i realize i posted wrong info. I lost at showdown so my hole cards had to be Kx (not 5). Sorry for the mistake JWK24 I'm new to the forum

        If Kx and not K5, then I'm betting alot more on the flop, probably about a pot-sized bet.

        The key in the hand is that when the opp pushes the turn, you really need to look at 33 as in their range, along with a K with higher kicker.

            Preflop why did u raise a KXo? with 7 players left thats not in the range of hands i would play, would save u alot of chips if u play a bit tighter, u have almost 17BB left dont worry about 1 blind.

              You've misread the post . They were playing HU, 7 were eliminated. Nothing wrong with Kx raise pf, and as already said, think it just needed a bigger bet after the flop. gl. DC
