                Hi Arzyl! The first tip that I would have for you is that whenever sitting down at a ring table, always wait for the BB. Posting and paying extra blinds over and over will be a HUGE drain to a player's bankroll. With 10's from UTG+1, I have 2 limps in front of me (UTG and my post). I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, I will bet 500. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, as this helps to keep the opps guessing as to the cards that I'm playing. Players that bet more with better hands and less with weaker ones are basically turning their cards face-up and that is something that I want to avoid. I then get 2 calls, a raise to 2700 and another call. This puts me in a really bad spot. as I do have a made hand, but in a multi-way pot, it's very, very marginal. With this many opps against me, it's likely that between them, they will have all of the cards higher than a 10 and if any pair the board, I'm beat. Due to this, I need to muck my 10's here. If I was up against 1 opp, or maybe 2 opps that were extremely loose, I would shove here, but with possibly 4 opps, it's too much of a risk. I also do not want to just call the 2700 here, as this is more than 1/3 of my remaining stack, which means that I'm pot-committed. Therefore, if I call this bet, I cannot ever fold in the hand after this. When a bet would make me pot-committed, I need to either shove or fold and anything in-between is a play that I cannot make. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Thank you so much John, the tip you gave me was really a great help, as a beginner, I now realize that I should give importance with my stack. I will not force myself to see a flop with weak hands and in betting, i will review my course here about betting. I'm really thankful that I'm here with you guys, more power.

                    Hello flophitter, I already watched the "getting started" video and posted a "PLAY MONEY" hand using hand replayer, I also passed the poker basic course but still need to review some articles, I am still not contented with the score I got from the assessment and will probably take another test after I finish my review. I am really happy for the free knowledge that I got here, it will definitely adds a great improvement with my game on the table. There are still a lot of lessons for me take here and would be very happy to do so. I am now done with the steps that you gave me, what's next? I am a lot more confident now than before. Thank you so much @pokerschoolonline

                        Thanks for that flophitter. I watched the video and found out 4 reasons why to bet big.

                        To protect against strong draws.
                        To put a lot of pressure on opponents.
                        To gain value from very strong hands.
                        To bluff opponents who have decent hands.

                              And please help me with this hand, I don't know if what I did was wrong or correct. I lose almost 35% of my bankroll in this hand.
