          Hi tiltboy52, I've asked one of the hand analysers to look at this hand for you. He should do this within the next 24 hours. Once the hands have been reviewed we can continue on from there. Raiser umbup:

            Hi tiltboy52! With AJs in postion, I see a raise and call in front of me. Here is where I've got options. I can either call behind and see the flop in position or I can 3-bet to try to lower the number of opps in the hand. Which I do will be based on my reads of the opponents. If I 3-bet, I'll make the size of it my standard 3-bet size, between 3X the opp's bet (90) and a pot-sized raise (105). I see a 3-way flop that I miss, but I'm in position. When the opps check to me, here is where a read on the opps will come into play. If the opps are calling stations (will call anything) then I'll check. If the opps might fold, then I'll make a 2/3 pot c-bet (250). The turn gives me top pair. When the opps check to me, I will definitely make a value bet here and size it at 2/3 pot (250). If there was only 1 opp in the hand, I'd bet 1/2 pot. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                      Hi tiltboy52 Preflop is tough. If I had a deeper stack then I would probably call as you did. You will have position on the raiser postflop. And, you have a decent hand that plays well against multiple opponents. The biggest worry is that one of the players left to act reraises, in which case you need to fold. Since you do not have a deep stack I would probably have played it safe and folded preflop. The villain may have a hand or he may be trying to steal the dead money in the pot. As played, you flop a flush draw. Notice that you are not drawing to the nut flush. Moreover, you and the villain are fairly short stacked. I would recommend calling the flop c-bet and reevaluating on the turn. Getting all in risks too much of your stack considring you will only make a flush about 1 in 3 times. Nice result though GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
