re: Poker & 10$ ring KQ with TP
Limping in pre-flop is *begging* for people to call you with hands like J/6 and gets you into a lot of trouble post-flop because limpers can hit some weird stuff. You should have opened for whatever the standard opening bet is, plus one BB. So if people are opening for $.35, bet $.45.
With a hand like K/Q you're happy just taking the blinds.
By my math there's $1 in the pot (a min raise and a min-raise after the flop???) when you raise it another $.50 more to $.60.
Valeriu2007 then makes another min-raise and you min-raise him back.
Not good. But after you chase the Swensen out, you can pretty much be happy playing for his stack.
I think the most important factor here is stack size. You can't give short stacks like this much respect. If he shoved post-flop it would have been the easiest call in the world.
Now, it *looks* like he's doing everything possible to get more money into the pot, but still, a shorty is going to do that with just J/J and all sorts of terrible hands. So you gotta do what you can (which is probably anything) to get all his money in.
Sure sometimes he'll be trying to be tricky with Aces, but most of the time he'd just desperate and is going to go all the way with his pre-flop plan to get it all in this hand.
