              Hi 1john do! With KT from the SB, I get two limpers in front of me. If any of these opps could fold, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper and with two limpers, I'll raise to 5BB or 10. If they all are going to call, then I'll complete. I will be raising the overwhelmning majority of the time here. The flop totally misses me, so I will check and hope to see a free turn card. Unfortunately, this does not happen as an opp makes a large overbet of 10 chips (more than what is in the pot). Holding nothing and not having a decent draw, I absolutely need to muck here. Calling the 10 chips is just throwing the chips away since I have nothing. The key here is to muck hands that miss and do not have a draw that I'm priced in for. I want to be putting chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I have nothing. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                        Hi 1john do! I'll take a look at this real money hand.

                        Firstly, I notice that 4 seats are empty (or players are sitting out). The strategy recommended in the PSO courses is based on full 9-handed tables, in which you can be patient and wait for strong hands, because the blinds don't come round often. When I'm on a full ring table, I often leave as soon as there are two empty seats, and I'd recommend you do likewise. It's best to add your name to the waiting list on a full table, because then you can watch it for a while and see who are the loose and aggressive players, so you know who to look out for when you get a seat.
                        Now let's get into the analysis.
                        You have J6o in the small blind. This hand is complete trash. No one makes money in the long run with this hand. Even though it only costs you 1c to complete the blind, I'd recommend you fold this hand, especially since you'll be out of position for the rest of the hand. Playing out of position is neither fun or profitable, so you should be folding in the small blind very often indeed. A further reason to fold is that you are super-short-stacked. You only have 8c behind. Ideally, you'd like to pick up a pocket pair, a decent ace or two suited Broadway cards (KQs/JTs etc), and your only play would be to shove all in and hope to win a race.
                        As played, you complete and see a J76 flop 3-handed.
                        This is a great flop for you, because you made two pairs. This is a strong holding, but it's vulnerable. I definitely want to bet for value, as you can be called by worse, including one pair hands and straight draws. Since the pot is 6c and you only have 7c behind, you should go all in. Minbetting serves no purpose. In fact, it gives a villain a great price to call with any draw. If a villain is on a draw, we want to charge him a high price.
                        Both villains call and the turn brings a 3. There's now 13c in the pot and you have 5c behind. You have to shove now. A standard size for betting the flop and turn is between half pot and full pot. You have less than a half-pot bet in your stack, so get it all in now! Betting 4c still gives villain a cheap price to suck out. Villain calls and you only have 1c left. The pot is 20c, so you finally have your whole stack in, but got a bit unlucky. Villain rivered a straight. While this might seem like a bad beat, villain never made a mistake in this hand. Because your bets were so small, he had the right price to call on the flop and turn with his 8-out draw. We make money in poker from our opponents' mistakes. One of the most common mistakes they make is chasing draws without the right odds to do so. If you'd gone all in on the flop with a pot-sized bet, villain would have made a mistake if he'd called. He might have called anyway, but in the long run, you'd double up, because he wouldn't make his straight very often.

                        In future, be more careful in your hand selection and be aware of your position at the table. Play very tight in the blinds, because those are the worst seats. If you hit the flop hard, then make bigger bets, between half pot and full pot, to get value and to cause villains to make bad calls. If you don't bet big, then they aren't making mistakes!

                        Hope this helps!
                        Cheers,
                        Arty
