I had Pocket Kings and this guy was chasing a flush after calling a preflop raise with a crap hand!

His flop call was questionable, but the flop, and turn calls were definitely good calls on his part.

That is stupid of that guy for calling, but next time I think you should raise a lot more with KK. This will take out the morons that call small raises with crap. This is bound to happen if you dont do it.

how stupid was it really? I don't general play small suited connectors out of position to a sizable raise, but alot of people do, for situations like this one. In super system, Doyle Brunson said that he'd general put in 5-10% of his chips with Suited connectors hoping to break somebody. This guy put in less than 10% of his chips preflop and flopped a MONSTER draw. 15 outs, Twice. The turn gave him even more outs, as he could hit either of the remaining 3s. So he had 15/47 on the flop and 17/46 on the river. Definately had the odds to call and catch the final spade. His BIGGEST problem is not RAISING you on the flop with a draw like this, and ESPECIALLY on the end when its obvious you are holding QQ KK or AA. This guy DID make a mistake, and it was not getting value for his hand.

preflop call is questionable - I completely agree with texas dolly's theory of suited connectors, but this is a $1 sng...i'm sure the guy wasn't thinking "ok i can break him if i hit a big draw, because i know he has a big pocket pair and will give me great implied odds"....more along the lines of "ooh! they're sooooted! Me call now!" followed with some caveman-ish sounds :p

disregarding his PF call, after the flop I actually like a big push on the flop - I get my money in just about any time I have a draw like this.
