6 max STT

Hello, any opinion/reasoning on the hands below is appreciated Thank you!

1. Villain is opening at least 75% so my question is what hands should I 3b jam and what to flat? Is K2s for example better as a push or a flat? ICMizer suggests I can shove profitably at least 60% if he calls something like 20%.


    Poker Stars, $1.32 Buy-in (80/160 blinds, 20 ante) No Limit Hold'em Tournament, 2 Players
    Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. View Hand #37819105

    Hero (BB): 5,143 (32.1 bb)
    SB: 3,857 (24.1 bb)

    Preflop: Hero is BB with 2 K
    SB raises to 320, Hero calls 160

    Flop: (680) 9 J T (2 players)
    Hero checks, SB bets 320, Hero folds

    2. How do you play this hand in this spot assuming that villain's stats look like of a regular, he has a 40% fold BB to steal so if I raise I would play this bad hand OOP pretty often. If I plug it in ICMizer it's profitable shove but it feel kinda weird to push that much. What do you think is the best option?

      3. How do you play this hand assuming villain is unknown/looks like a reacreational? Raise bigger on the F/shove T, bet T and R (fold vs raise T) I think that I should have raised bigger on the F and still shove T, I think that he still has hands like KQ, QJ, QT, Q9, JT, 97 that could call besides T9 and other 2pair that beat us and also our hand needs some protection. What do you think is the best option?

        H1 is a fine jam vs an aggressive opponent although what's best will depend on how often he folds to 3 bets. As an example, vs an aggressive opponent I'd look to do a lot of 3betting with weak suited Kx and Qx and flat more middling hands that perform well post.

        H2 raising non all in is fine and probably performs a lot better. Villain is unlikely to get aggressive in any way due to stack size so you should be able to take it down a ton pre and your cbet should be profitable on most boards. Shoving is ok vs a super aggressive guy who also happens to have a clue but I think putting in 25bb pre here with total garbage against someone who could call with Q6s may be troublesome lol.

        H3. No need to go too crazy. Q72r can raise a bit smaller or just flat, Q87 with a flush draw I'd go huge and jam turn. This one I think bigger and jamming turn is fine, probably not folding a pair or a gutter on the flop to most sizes. You're spot on with ranges too, nice job not getting hung up on his obvious T9 .

        first hand 3B is a little better but flatting is'nt horrible or anything....i would continue flop however, either by c/c or c/r

        2nd and 3rd hand are good

        Yeah, I thought about it because we have the backdoor FD. What sizing would you use for c/r? And I guess we have to jam any spade on the T...
