Got a question, since I started playing a little more Cash-Games now.
Especially Rush because of the Gold-Rush Promo at Full Tilt.

I was short-stacked and tried to double up to a decent Stack again or to reload Chips.

I see a lot of those players who think that every raise from late-position must be a Bluff.
So they raise with hands like A-7, Q-J and other marginal Hands.
Some of them even raise with any 2.

As a short-stack I decided to re-steal by going all-in with Hands like 7-7+ or A-10+
One calls with with A-7 and the other for example with 10-6 suited.

I find my play as a short-stack pretty profitable as long as those donks call with crap like this.

But usually I play with a normal Stack-Size, how would I handle those hands with a normal to Deep Stack-Size? I am not really sure if folding those Hands every time makes sense... (of course not when I have Q-Q+ or maybe J-J

6-Max Table

I am in Middle Position (UTG+1.. but well, 6-Max) with K-Q off.
I raise 3BB with K-Q offsuited
guy behind me 4-Bets me or something around
Rest Folds.

What should I do?

Main reason why I folded is, because I was out of Position and honestly I don't know what I would do if the Flop misses, since most Players won't fold any Hand when they already put in so much money pre-flop.

Another example:

completely same scenario but:
I Had A-Q
3xBB raise
dude re-raises me. I call because it's only 2 BB this time.

Flop Comes 2-3-5 with Flush-Draw

I check-fold

what would be the best move here?

I know what you mean.
I tried to apply the Slow Ball a little to the Cash-Games and find it surprisingly effective because it's really soft Poker.

It's a little like 1 step Back 2 steps forwards

You gonna lose if you have bad luck with donks at the table a lot of small pots. But if you hit and you play the same as always, then you are going to cash BIG!

Also of course people do not call you literally every time, which allows you to get a couple of Blinds every now and then with a Hand.

It's just those little things where I see a huge 'Equity Pool' but I just don't know how to get it.

Hey le bron. Smile
I have seen quite a few of your forum posts and you have sounded very frustrated about a lot of your poker exploits.This is not a criticism as it is always good to vent but it would be interesting to know a couple of things about you such as........ how long have you been playing poker and ........what stakes have you been playing? Smile

Depends how big the 4-bet is on the 1st hand and in the 2nd hand it depends , do you have a nutflushdraw or not and did you have suited or non-suited cards? also how big was his bet because in a lot of the situations he would c-bet you with any 2

on 1 and 2 cent cash games.. 3BB = 6 cents. 4 Bet, 4BB= 8 cents.
so i raise to 0,06$ and he re-raises to 0,14$. Most of the times it's even around 0,20$

and second hand I hadn't Flush-Draw. I mean maybe he had it
