So you raise, and you are basically telling him, "bad read, sir, I have KK," and he believes you and mucks.

So you have both made (initial) good level one reads. But you win the hand because you make better decisions on what to do with the same good level one read.

That is generally where your edge comes from.

Well put , and when I'm 24 tabling these simple scenarios come up hundreds of times each day, I can just imagine all the leaks I must have
