Default 1/2 stud hi game on Stars - too aggressive?

Kept betting all the way, alas was rivered. I don't think any of the bets were bad as I kept pressuring my opponent, but should I have eased off the gas on 6th or 7th streets? I wasn't too worried with the queen as he didn't raise on third.

I don' think that you were rivered.It doesn't make sense that he would have started off with J,3 in the hole.He must have had J,J.You said you weren't worried about him having Q's,but some players will limp with a hand like this to see what the K will do.It looks to me like this is what he did with the J's.

He posted the results in standard PStars order, which means he did have jack 3 in the hole.

Yuck.

You played it fine.

Yeah, but even if the jacks were in the hole it would be hard to see them if there was no raising going on. C'est la vie.

You're representing K's and get called 3rd thru 5th by a Q high showing. When you don't improve by 5th it is probably best to check/call on 6th and 7th. Your opponent's board is weak and most of your cards are live. I don't see how you can get away from this hand when you catch 2 pair on 7th.

When I sais that I suspectedJJin the hole,I didn't mean to infer that the hand was played poorly,because it wasn't.I probably would have slowed down on either 6th or 7th,myself,although I think betting all the way is just as good.

To paraphrase those great thinkers at Monty Python: "I think it's people like Beer what causes unrest."

Let me be clear. I think some of Beer's recent comments have been hilarious. Also, who could possibly argue with the following statements:

Hip Hip for Beer.
Long Live Beer.
Beer is great.
