              Hi Kanizaki! With 99 in the BB, when everyone limps, I'm going to check and see a free flop to try and hit a set. If I did raise, then I would need to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 4 limpers, I would need to raise to 7BB or 70. I do not want to make abnormally large nor small raises nor bets. I want to keep them standard so that the opps are continually guessing at the strength of my hand. If I'm first to enter a pot with a pair, I'm either making a standard raise or I'm folding them. Anything in-between says to my opps that I have a weak hand. The next opp makes a min-raise that is called by everyone. Here, I have 2 decisions I can make. The overwhelming majority of the time I will call and see the flop. If I raise, then I must make a standard raise, which is to between 3X the previous bet (90) and a pot-sized raise (170). With multiple opps, I'd tend to go toward the top end of this and raise to 170. Once again, I do not want to do something in the middle because I'm giving the opps a play where they expect to gain chips by calling. I flop bottom set on a board with a possible made straight and straight draws. When it checks to me, due to the number of opps in the hand, I need to make a pot-sized value bet here of 200. I want my bets to be based on the pot size and not off of the BB. I also do not want to make a smaller bet than this here, as the opps will be expecting to gain chips from calling me due to getting the correct odds. I then get raised and now I once again need to make a pot-sized raise to 270. I do not want to bet less, as the opps expect to gain chips from MY bets if I do so. I hit quads on the turn and I'm going to lead out here for 3/4 pot (240 chips), as I want to keep my bets standard. I do not want to bet lower than this unless I check... which I could also do here. I'd rather bet though, so that I can set up a pot-size that makes it easy for me to shove the river. On the river, I'll make another 3/4 pot bet (330 chips). Due to making abnormally small bets up until now, I can't make a reasonable shove on the river, which is costing me chips! When I get raised, I'm re-raising whatever amount I think that the opps will call, which will be at least 1/2 the size of the pot, if not more. The huge key with this hand is to make standard bets both preflop and postflop! ----------- With Q2o in the BB, everyone limps. This hand is bad enough that I need to instantly fold it if another opp raises it and I do not want to put a single chip into this pot if I don't have to, since my hand is total garbage. I see top pair on the flop and I will make my one play to try to win the pot here by making a pot-sized bet of 165. If I'm raised, I'm folding. If I'm called, I won't put another chip into the pot unless my hand improves. Once again, the keys here are to not raise with bad hands and to make standard bets. Making abnormally small bets will make players lose more and more hands than they should due to giving the opps the correct odds to draw to beat them. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Question?

                  "If I did raise, then I would need to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper."
                  What is "standard raise" and "BB"? Is that small bet and big blind?

                    BB = Big Blind, so if your playing 1/2 cent tables the Small Blind is 1 cent and the Big Blind is 2 cent. A standard raise would be 3 times the Big Blind. Raiser umbup:

                              I think I should bet before showdown because he didn't rise. Or shouldn't risk in this one?
