        was this the right move?

        I started of with Ah 10s on a 1/2c play money table.Im sitting mid position and put out a small raise (6)for an info bet as the other players were playing pretty tight (4 callers).Flop showed 9d,5s,kc. No real threat bar the king as it was a dry flop for flush's maybe a straight draw.Had two overs to cover the straight draw incase they missed it or had small pair.1st checks so i made another bet (8) to see who had the king. Two fold and three call. Turn comes up As.1st checks again so i raise my bet (12)next two fold one calls.River comes out 7s and 1st checks again telling me no flush and only k's so bet again (16) and calls again. 1st mucks hand and i win with pair aces.

                Hi frombhind_74! With 57s from the CO, there are a number of limps, then a min-raise. Since there was a raise, I'm going to muck this preflop and look for a better situation to get involved in (with a better hand). Just because I may have an ace or suited cards doesn't mean that the hands should always be played. If I was in the hand and see that I flop two pair, when it checks to me, due to the large number of opps in the hand, I need to make a pot-sized value bet here of 29 chips. I don't want to bet less than this, as I want to try to get as many opps to fold as possible, which will make playing the hand easier on the later streets. The turn pairs the A and an opp makes a very small bet (less than 1/3 pot). Since the overwhelming majority of hands that would call my flop bet are Ax hands, if this is what the opp has, I'm totally crushed now and due to this, I need to muck to the opp's bet. --------- In the AK hand, there is one very important point to be made here and that is to always wait for the BB before starting to play. Paying extra BB's to start playing immediately will be a very large drain to a player's bankroll and should be avoided. Another key point with it is to make standard preflop raises, which is to raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 6 limpers, I need to raise to 9BB or 18 chips. I don't want to raise to anything lower than this, as it make s calling a positive play for the opps. I want them to have to make negative plays, not positive ones. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
