I am interested in your opinion according to this hand! What would you have done? My first goal is to reach the points for the league. Would you have played the hand differently? Would you have called in the end?

I would bet higher on the flop, probably bet on the turn. In the end, my decision of calling would be decided, based on my knowings of opponents.

after the flop your expectation of victory was very small

It was the correct fold after the flop

would play rather standardly in this situation - raise 5 BB (3bet + both bets before me), Seat 7 with remaining 2270 chips would have to call 640 chips, or instead to get AI. In all circumstances, I would be confident with my pocket kings, as always :D

With 14 BB's you should really be shoving all in preflop. The next best option would be to raise 5x. This starts to commit your stack though which is why you should go all in preflop. Assuming your line of calling, you should likely next .5x to 1.0x the pot. Assuming your line of a min bet, when you get raised is another great time to shove all in. What are you thinking during the flop? Is he raising because you're behind? Does he think you're bluffing? Did he hit a draw or better? Giving the free card on the turn is dangerous, again you need to bet. Folding the river after check/check turn when you're opponent goes all in is questionable. Do you think he raised the flop with 2 hearts and hit a runner runner flush? A 56 or 9T and hit a straight? A 3rd 8? Almost none of these are likely and if he did he would likely have bet the turn. People like to all in bluff the river after you show weakness with checking and calling. Be more aggressive with your premium hands and try to protect them.

Somebody said all in preflop, and i agree especially in those open skill league, i'm playin it right now, and i understand that you need to get to the points, but let s be serious, it is hard to play those big hands in this kind of freeroll. So next time, think about shoving.
