  • how can you play against this!!!

    **moved to more appropriate forum JWK24**

    There are a couple things that stick out here. The first is the raise amount... it's way too high. A standard raise here would be to between 3X the previous bet (480) and a pot-sized raise (600).

    Due to the preflop action, getting it in on the flop is fine, but we have to remember that no hand is invincible and every one will lose a % of the time... it's just going to happen. I want someone putting their chips in when they're a big underdog... it's how I'll make chips over time.

      is the bet size really that bad.... if i bet like you said then i give connected cards the right price to call.... so with a flop like that i feel kinda safe after a bigger bet (well though i was lol) and AA KK are going to be shoving over the top pre flop

          JJ loses to A8s just about 1/3 of the time... 1 in 3....

          standard raises do NOT give connectors the right odds to play unless there are multiple, multiple callers.. and if that's the case, the overbet does the exact same thing.

          Bet size tells is the biggest thing that many players look for online. Players that bet higher with better hands and less with marginal hands are very easily exploited.
