                  Should I just have flat called pre-flop? Considering the hands that eventually get flipped I can't help but feel hard done by.

                      Hi Tr01D! With 77 from the BB, since I do have a deep enough stack to setmine, I'm going to call preflop and hope to flop a 7. When I want to setmine, I want to have at least 15BB in my stack and the opp's stacks. If I did raise, I need to make a pot-sized raise, which would be to 700. A raise any smaller than this will give the opps the correct odds to try and draw to beat me, which is something that I want to avoid whenever possible. An opp now 4-bets to 700. With pocket 7's here, I'm mucking to this raise, as it should only be from an overpair or maybe AK. In a multi-way pot, 77 does not play well at all if I do not get a seven on the flop. If I was to raise, I would need to raise to 3X their bet (a standard raise).. and I don't have that many chips. I want my raises to be consistant and NOT min raises. I use 3BB+1BB for each limper for a standard open raise.. if nobody has raised. I use between 3X the opps bet and a pot-sized raise if someone has raised (3X if nobody has called and a pot-sized raise if there are callers). Also, when I raise someone after an opening raise, it will be to at least 3X their previous bet. I do not want to raise less than this, because it will give the opps the correct odds to draw to beat me when I have the best hand. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                        Hi Tr01D, Now we want to get you playing on the real money tables. Next up, and spend some time on this one , study the Poker Basic Course and take the basic assessment quiz at the end of that course. Once you have passed this quiz your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours of passing it. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion. Use this first buy-in to then play the 1/2 cent real money tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you get your first $2 and start playing these games and we'll continue on from there.

                            Hi Tr01D, Your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours. Use this first buy-in to then play ONLY the 1/2 cent full ring real money tables only on PokerStars. Playing any other game format will disqualify you from being able to obtain further buy-ins through this promotion. Post back here when you get your first buy-in and start playing these games, along with a hand that you had problems, or that cost you money, while playing with this buy-in. Also, please attend an 'Cash Basics' live training session. This should help too. Good luck! Raiser umbup:
