          Hi PokerKingZ42! I love your avatar! I'll analyse the hand in post #4.

          AJ is a trouble hand, but it plays pretty well heads up, so when a villain limps in (just calls the blind), raising to try and isolate him is a good idea, but your sizing is too small. Minraising to 60 still gives a good price to other players. A more standard open is 3bb + 1bb per limper, so I'd make it 120 chips in this spot. As played 4 players call. The flop comes K97, so all you have is one overcard and some backdoor draws. Villains should normally check to the raiser (you) and you could make a continuation bet, but here the BB donks out with quite a large bet. This should be an easy fold. He usually has a king, and you only have 3 outs to beat that, and you're not getting the right price to call. Nice fold, well played.

          Hope this helps!

            Thanks for the analysis and great advice

            Just wanted to say thanks for your review and input. I find bet sizing to be a tricky concept...still trying to wrap my head around how to size bets relative hand strength in different positions. eg: AKs from the button vs from UG or MP2 or BB etc. Is the bet size for a monster hand always 4-6 BB's or does that change based on position? I am practicing lots and have some success in ring games and small field tourneys , but I find that in a big tourney like the WCOOP satellites with 12 to 20K players I often sit in place 10-12 for about 3/4 of the tourny (NTM) then it all falls aart on a hand like AK,AQ,AJ or top pairs...I'll get beat by some 63s or 89 or whatever. I guess I have to raise bigger to protect my satck and hand value.
            thanks again
