                Hi InSiDiOuS86! With AQs, I get four limps. I'm going to make a standard raise which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to 4 limpers, I'll raise to 7BB or 70 chips. I flop a flush draw with 2 overs and I'm also out of position. Since I raised preflop, I'm going to make a c-bet based on the number of opps that are left and with 4 opps, I'll make a pot-sized bet (I would bet less if there were less opps in the hand, the reason I want to raise preflop). I turn the nut flush and once again, I want to make a standard bet and with 4 opps, I'll make a pot-sized bet. I want to keep all of my bets standard, as it will help to conceal the strength of my hand. The river is a scare card, as it could give an opp a full house and any opp that has called a preflop raise and two pot-sized bets could easily have it. Once again, I'm going to make a standard value bet on the river and bet based on the number of opps and with 3 opps left, I will bet 3/4 the size of the pot. The keys here are to make standard bets, based on the size of the blinds in an unraised pot preflop, and to base my bets on the size of the pot post-flop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24) P.S. Please let me know when you have finished the other two steps.

                        3 reasons why a player would make a big bet

                        to put pressure on other players

                        to protect against strong draws

                        to gain value from very strong hands

                            Hi InSiDiOuS86! Let's take a look at this hand.

                            First of all, it looks like you posted your big blind out of turn. Don't do this. Since you'll be dealt an unplayable hand more than 80% of the time, you'll be throwing away 2c four times out of five. This money will add up over time and drain your bankroll. When you first join a table, click the "Wait until big blind before posting" option.

                            You have K3s UTG. I'm folding this hand in this seat 100% of the time. It's not a playable hand in any position, really, but particularly not in early seats. You check your option and a villain in MP raises. You should be mucking immediately. You're out of position with a junk hand, so calling is a big mistake. You simply won't hit a good flop very often.
                            The flop comes AA3 with a flush draw in a suit you don't have. You completely missed this flop, so should fold if villain c-bets. His pre-flop raising range contains many aces, so he probably hit this flop.
                            As played, he checks behind, but this could be a slowplay.
                            The turn comes a T, so you still just have king high with no kicker. For some reason you bet 2c into 19c. This bet makes no sense. Clearly you are bluffing, but a villain isn't going to fold his hand for such a small bet when the pot is so much bigger. He's certainly not folding a strong hand for such a low price. Villain just calls the 2c, so you see the river.
                            You've finished the hand with exactly what you started with: king high. It's almost impossible for you to have the best hand here, because of villain's pre-flop raise and the way the board ran out. If villain has any pocket pair, ace, queen or ten, he has you beat. If he raised pre with KJs, then he rivered a straight.
                            In some ways, bluffing the river makes sense, because it's possible to represent a flush here. The problem, however, is your bet size. If you really had a flush, you'd make a stronger bet to get value for your big hand. What you actually did is bet 6c into 23c, and villain raised. This raise is never a bluff. Either villain actually has the flush (or a straight), or he thinks you have a worse hand than he does. Maybe he puts you on a pair of queens. You don't even have a pair of queens. You have king high. Why are are you calling the raise? Villain isn't going to show jack high!
                            Villain shows top trips. He had you beat from start to finish, but slowplayed, which is a mistake by him because he could have allowed you to make a flush very cheaply.
                            You lost a small pot here, but you could have minimised your losses further. With K3s you simply shouldn't get involved in the hand in the first place. Folding pre-flop would have prevented you making further mistakes in the hand.

                            Hope this helps!
