Before I even post the hand, yes, I have butchered the hand preflop and I was greedy, but I knew that the SB would raise if I limped into him (he had raised the last 6 times out of the SB when there was a single limper!!!!!). My mistake wa snot reraising back, but I digress.

What is our line here with top set ?

Stacks: - MP with $16.00 - CO with $1.20 - BTN with $9.35 - SB with $14.35 - BB with $10.70 - UTG with $3.00

- Sklansky group 1
Preflop:
- Hero calls [$0.10]
- SB raises $0.40 to $0.50
- Hero calls [$0.40] (I'm puking here and really thought about popping it to 2)
- Folds: 4
- Potsize: $1.1
Flop:

- SB bets [$0.70]
- Hero ??????

Villain range is huge and includes lower set, lower pp, flush draw, straight draw and air. I might be inclined to raise 3 times his bet and take it from here (and probably stack off) since we are only behind to flopped straight (KQ) and we still have 33% equity againt such a hand. Thoughts ?

YES raise. PF was terrible (I know you know, but you should also know that I know I can't not mention it ;)), and we have to raise here. Draw-heavy board, possibility of a weaker set or pair to pay us off...

There's no way we can slowplay this. Yes, you might have let KQ in, but we still have good equity vs that hand anyways. Raise, jam, call shove, hate yourself for botching PF up if you lose to KQ.

Its nl$10, there is no need to get over tricky. Pre-flop was a total wreak, limp /3 betting with a good read is fine, the limp call is bad and unnecessary.

From here, raise to around $2 and call a shove.

Okay, that's what I thought and, you'Ve guessed it, villain had KQ.

No need to say that I'm threetowning this next time.

You're right, obv 3 bet PF. Not to be too hard on yourself though because a loose-ish player at this limit would call your 3-bet with KQ anyway, even though folding is the right play.
