          Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you. He will do this within the next 24 hours.

          Please let us know when you have passed the Basics quiz. When these are both done, I will advise on the next step.

            Hi shylene8! With 95s from the BB, there is a raise and 4 calls of the raise. I'm going to immediately muck here, as my hand is a very weak one and is definitely not ahead. Just because I have an A or suited cards doesn't mean that the hand is strong enough to play, especially calling a raise. When calling a raise, I only want to have a much better hand. Calling when I have a bad hand, especially calling a raise when out of position, will cause me to lose a very large number of chips over time. If I did see the flop (which I would not), when I hit bottom pair and an ace hits the board, I'm checking and folding to ANY bet. I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead and not when I'm behind. Yes, anyone can get lucky every once in a while since every hand will win a given % of the time, but I want to be mucking my bad hands and to only put chips in when I'm ahead and the favorite to win the hand. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                      Hi shylene8 Firstly, try to stick to full ring tables that are acually filled up. I suggest adjusting the filter in the Holdem lobby. I set mine to only show tables with 8 players. That way when I join the table, it is always filled up. Playing at a full table lets you be patient and wait for good starting hands. Playing shorthanded forces you to play a much wider range which makes for too many tough postflop spots. In other words, it is easier to win at a full table. Opening with K8s in this spot is fine. However, as a general rule, any time you are the first to enter the pot, always enter with a raise! Limping in justs asks for multiple opponents and trouble. As played, betting the flop is good. However, I suggest betting slightly more on both the flop and turn. The board offers a flush draw. Bet about 70% of the pot in order to give the villain poor odds if they are chasing. Betting smaller on the river is fine since you probably won't get called by anything larger. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                        3 reasons why people may want big bet.

                        1. to put a lot of pressure on opponent
                        2. to bluff off people of descent hand
                        3. to gain value from a very strong hand
