            Hi zeks92! With AT in the SB, I get 3 limps, then an abnormally large raise to 130 (standard raise is to 3BB+1BB for each limper or 12 chips here) and a call of the 130. While AT is a hand with potential, I need to muck and here's why. 1) If I call this bet, I have more than 1/3 of my chips into the pot, which means that I'm pot-committed and cannot fold. Due to this, if I play the hand, I need to shove... BUT... 2) AT is not a good enough hand to shove here with this action in front of me. Either of the two opps that have bet or called 130 can easily have a bigger ace or a pair, which means I'm behind. I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind. AK or AA, I would shove, but not any lower ace. The key here is to muck marginal hands preflop to abnormally large bets. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet? Then study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz.

                      Hi zeks92 The replayer stops for me on the turn. I'm not sure if you cut the hand history or if something just went awry. If you cut the hand history, please just paste the full history into the replayer in the future, thanks I assume you won the hand though since you entitled the post "Good Hand". With I strongly suggest folding any time you are facing a preflop raise. This hand just won't win often enough to be profitable. This hand does not have high card value, nor are they suited giving you flush possibilities, nor are they connected giving you straight possibilities. If you ask yourself, "What am I hoping to flop?" Not many flops help this hand. Moreover, if you flop a K as in this case, you run a very real risk of being up against an opponent who also has a K but with a better kicker. This creates a situation where you can quickly lose a big pot. Hands such as KJs, KQo or even 67s make for much easier post flop play. Calling preflop in this hand was a clear mistake. Luckily you got lucky this time. Notice that the opposite also happens. Sometimes we do everything right, getting all in preflop with AA for example, but still lose. The goal is to make good decisions. If we always do that then the results will take care of themselves. My point being that it is important to distinguish between good luck and good play. I suggest you work on sticking to strong starting hands. It will be more profitable and make your post flop play much easier. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                              3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

                              1.To put a lot of pressure on opponents
                              2.To bluff people off decent hands
                              3.To protect against strong draws
