My .02 cents if you choose to use it & why? I am a big proponenent of new players to the game of playing solid cards to begin with. The advantage to this is if you are first to open the bettinng you can lay down a 2 1/2 x or 3x raise with confidence. To quote Phil Gordons "Little Gold Book" by the way i highly recomend it great read. I qote "LIMPERS ARE LOSERS" #1) If you limp into the pot the good players are going to be all over you, or #2) they will limp with their junk & quite often it is the junk hands that turn into the biggest pots. Keep these odds in mind preflop when playing!

NON PAIRS WILL PAIR ONE CARD-32.00%-ODDS-2-to-1

TWO SUITED CARDS WILL MAKE A FLUSH-6.50%-ODDS-15-to-1

TWO SUITED CARDS WILL FLOP A FLUSH-0.85%-ODDS-118-to-1

TWO SUITED CARDS FLOP A FOUR FLUSH-10.90%-ODDS-9-to-1

A PAIR WILL FLOP A SET-12.00%-ODDS-8-to-1

A PAIR WILL FLOP FOUR OF A KIND-0.25%-ODDS--400-too-1

So question number 1? You have opened MP with 3X holding AQs & you get two callers. Flop is 9h 6s 2d Playing against 2 other players who called you. Question #2) would you have no problem no hesitation with a 3x continuation bet or check?
