Hi, so i just recieved by first buy in through the bankroll builder promotion and sat down to a $1 / $2 cash ring game and here's what happened...

So unfortunatley for me I lost my bank roll within the first few hands but i'm hoping it was just a bad beat? Or should I have folded after the pre flop raise?

Any thoughts?

Kind Regards,

that's just a cooler.. however.. I'd have played it differently.

With KK preflop, I'm not just calling the 3-bet, I'd 4-bet to 50 cents and if the opp shoves, I'm snap-calling.
