            Hi CipciganDM! The first tip that I would give you is that when sitting at a ring table, please wait for the BB before you start to play. Paying extra blinds over and over will be a very large drain to a player's bankroll. With J2o, I'd like to immediately muck this, as the hand is awful. Since the blind is already posted, I'll check. An opp now min-raises and with a garbage hand, I need to muck. I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind. When the flop misses me, I absolutely need to muck. The key here is to muck bad hands before the flop and to wait until the BB to play. Not doing so here ended up costing me 2BB (4 chips). Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  2. Reasons of big betting: -to put pressure on players
                  - protect against strong draws
                  - bluff people with decent hands.

                      Hi CipciganDM! I think you can learn a few things from this hand.

                      You're in the big blind with QT offsuit, facing a 5bb raise by the UTG player. The first thing to say is that villain's range is very strong, since he opened in early position and made a large bet. I'd put him on at least TT+, or AK. The second thing to say is your hand is weak. QT might be two Broadway cards, but it won't make a straight very often. Usually it will just make a pair with only an average kicker. QT is particularly weak against an UTG open, because it's dominated by QQ+, and TT.
                      If you call here, you'll also have to play the hand out of position without the initiative. This is neither fun or profitable.
                      The correct play here is to fold pre-flop, because you do not have a positive expectation.
                      As played, you call and the flop comes a J93 monotone. You have an open-ended straight draw and a reasonable flush draw, but you shouldn't try and build a big pot here unless you actually make a hand.
                      On the flop, you bet out. This is a mistake. In most cases, you should check to the raiser, to see if he continues his aggression, and if so, find out the price he wants you to pay. If he gives you a good price, you might call and see if you can hit your draw.
                      After you lead out (a donkbet), villain minraises. This is a mistake by him, as it gives you a great price to call. You only need to pay 8c and the pot is already 45c. Since villain raised, he's probably never folding his hand here. Remember that his range is strong. He might have the nut flush, a set of jacks, or an overpair like KK or AA. All those hands are beating you, so try and keep the pot small to see if you can suck out cheaply.
                      When you re-raise all in, the pot is large enough that villain can happily call with all his made hands that beat top pair. You missed all your outs here and villain's aces held. Against villain's actual hand, you were actually a slight favourite to win here, but if he'd had both red aces, you'd have been in terrible shape, as your flush outs would be dead. Versus most of villain's range, you would lose your stack here a lot of the time.

                      The main lessons to learn here are:
                      * Try to avoid playing marginal hands (e.g. QT, KJ, JT, AT) out of position, by folding them in the blinds.
                      * Check to the raiser to gain information about the strength of his hand.
                      * Call only when you get a good price to chase a draw.
                      * Don't raise when it doesn't seem villain is folding, because all that does is set a higher price for your draw.
                      * It's usually a mistake to put all your money in the middle with just a draw. Save your big bets for when you actually have a strong made hand.

                      Hope this helps!
                      Cheers,
