I was looking at my Hem in plugging leaks. Boy was I suprised to find that I had very good stats with 2 pair wtsd 63 W$SD 88 won on hand 92% with top pair wtsd 31.5 W$sd 34.2 won on hand 35.9%. Guess that means I'm only winning one out of three with my Aces-Kings-Queens-Jacks. Must because i get drawn out a lot and lose a lot on the river. Should I go all-in more when I get preminum hands?

I find betting 3 or 4 times the big blind does not work on these hands anymore. Six times or all in is getting to be the norm.
Usually try to keep pot small unless I have the nuts. As i said I lose a lot when I get pocket Kings thru Jacks. An Ace usually pops up after I bet on the turn. I quess if I bet high enough pre flop the Ace-Rags will drop out thinking I have an Ace.

There seems to be a feeling going around that a 3BB raise does not mean much. I know if I have pockets K's or Q's I now tend to raise 6BB. If someone calls I am happy to take my chances. I have seen smaller raises getting called by and winning hands I would not even have called flat with.
