Shynepo,Any bit of advice I could offer in this topic has been covered already. I just wanted to point out that the way villain played AK is EXACTLY the reason I love live poker so much. Doesn't 3 bet you preflop, doesn't raise you on the flop, checks the turn to you, and pays you off on the river.
I'm telling you, he usually plays 1/2, but he's been at the 2/5 table lately...and he's blown up on me a few mores time since...lol

There's no drawback, and no point to betting > 50% of the effective stacks instead of just sticking it in. And you REALLLY don't want to see a 4th diamond come or the board pair. You have to get the value now if someone wants to draw to a naked high diamond or to fill up. And folding should never enter your mind.
I'm talking about shoving over the $20 bet...there is still about $200 effective behind (nemisis has about $240). I know once it gets back to me after i do the $120 raise, I have to call though.....it's just the nemisis was weak tight, so folding actually entered my mind, as bad as it owould be.

This is kinda backwards thinking. You actually do want this scenario so when you do "steal" with KK they fight back thinking you are just gonna lay it down cause you are so "loose" Oh...and in case you haven't figured it out already...no...you can't get away from it. Ever.
I had to re-read what you wrote a few times, lol, but you're right....cause actually, had they seen me throw it away, they would've thought, "hey he steals with garbage.., i'm gonna call him with my 55-88,a/j"

He didn't open limp, he limped behind two others. That makes it only slightly less worse.
I limped in on the button, in front of 4 limpers...which isn't bad at all imo....but 9/3 suited, yes, i know, no good...And just when i thought no one would respond to my topics anymore...
