    Hi Mark! With KK, I'm going to make a standard raise preflop, which for this blind level is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 2 limpers, I will raise to 5BB or 200. I do not want to raise to less than this or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. I flop top set and an opp shoves.. this is a dream scenario. As a 97% favorite (not easy to get much higher)... I cannot get my chips into the pot fast enough! Good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      Hi John,

      Thanks for the reply, made me feel a lot better. I called his all in bet only to be beaten by a flush on the river which I never recovered from. I guess I can call that a bad beat?

      On the up side I followed your advice from a few days ago and managed to get to 211th in yesterdays 10.00 am (GMT) game by avoiding any all-ins with AK!
