    Should I be 3 and 4 betting more? Think I tilted a bit after this, shoved A8o unopened in the SB. I shoved AJo after 3 limpers the hand after, got called by the same genius, with pocket 66 and of course the flop was devoid of AJ.

    There's 5440 in the pot when the action reaches you. I think I'd make it about 6000 to go. I think shoving generally misses value, and wouldn't do it unless I'm pretty sure villains are bad enough to get it in with hands 77, like one villain did here.

      Hi IBNash! With KK in the BB, I get a raise to 1920 and a call. I'm going to 3-bet and the key is the sizing of it. My standard for this is to go to between 3X the previous bet (5760) and a pot-sized raise (7360). With multiple opps in the pot, I tend to go toward the higher end of this range, so I'll raise to 7000. I agree with Arty, that shoving loses value in the long run here. A standard 3-bet does not pot-commit anyone plus better opps will fold anything marginal to a large overbet shove.... I'll only get called by real hands, which can beat me. Also, getting a board like this, if the opps are loose, I want to leave myself an out when I see the A on the board, as a loose opp that plays any ace would then beat me. The only times that I want to shove is when I'm pot-committed. Other than that, all that shoving will do is to get me value-owned.. make all the worse hands fold and only better hands will call. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24) P.S. Against someone that has a maniac image that has shoved three hands in a row... I'm snap-calling with 66.
