        Bankroll Question Sorry about the thread confusion. Here is a hand in which my question is... Is it okay to bet on a flush when you need one more card of the suit. Or is it not good to depend on cards like that? For instance, if you need one more card for a straight, or full house, or flush in this case; does one of those situations have better odds than another? Thank you for your time.

          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 and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

            Hi kitten718! The first thing that I see here is before the hand even starts. Whenever I sit down to a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over will be a huge drain to a player's bankroll. With JT from the cutoff, I get 4 limps in front of me (yes, the posts count as limps). I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 4 limps, I will raise to 14 chips. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard as this helps to conceal the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent. Also, I don't want to raise to less because by doing so, I can be giving the opps the correct odds to outdraw me... something that I want to avoid if possible. I then get re-raised and have 2 calls of the raise. With a marginal hand in JT, I need to fold to this raise. JT is a strong enough hand to open-raise with, but it's not strong enough to call a 3-bet with as it takes a much stronger hand to call a raise, than to raise with. If I saw the flop (which I would not), I flop a flush draw. However, with 5 opps in the hand, someone could easily be drawing to a higher flush. Due to this, I need to muck to these bets, even though they are abnormally small. Bets postflop should be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture and with 4+ opps in the hand, a standard bet is a pot-sized bet. To answer your question, when I need to draw multiple cards to something, I do not want to be calling bets for this type of draw. I only want to call a draw when I am priced in to do so. This means that my hand equity has to be more than my pot equity (which will hardly ever be the case needing multiple cards). When my hand equity is higher, I expect to gain chips by calling. When it's less, I expect to lose chips by calling.. and I want to be putting my chips in when I expect to gain chips. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
