          Hi Ryaller! With KK in the BB, I get 5 limpers in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise here, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 5 limpers, I will raise to 8BB or 16 chips. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, so that the opps are continually guessing as to the actual strength of my hand. I flop three undercards, imagine that, and when it checks to me, I am going to make a value bet for my overpair. The key here is the sizing of the bet, as it needs to be made based on the size of the pot and the number of opps in the hand. With 5 opps, I need to make a pot-sized bet, so I will bet 48 chips. I do not want to bet less than this, or the opps can be getting the correct odds to draw to beat me. However, there is one more thing to take into consideration here... this bet is more than 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that if I make this bet, I'm pot-committed. Due to this, I cannot just bet 48 chips, I need to and will SHOVE the flop. I don't want to bet too little, because I do not want to give the opps the correct odds to beat me. Also, by making standard bets, I keep the opps guessing. On the turn, the abnormally small bet will scream to an observant opp that I'm afraid of the 10. Betting too much with better hands and less with marginal hands is one of, if not the biggest online tell for an opp's hand and is something that observant opps will specifically be looking for. If they know whether I'm strong or weak, they can then make an appropriate play to exploit me... something that I do now want to have happen. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
