            Hi Poffalaverv! With T7 from the BB, I get 6 limps in front of me. Since my hand is nowhere near strong enough to raise with, I will check and see a free flop. I flop the nut straight, but there are draws to better straights and due to this, I absolutely need to bet the flop. My flop bet will be based on the pot-size and the number of opps in the hand and with over 4 opps in the hand, I will make a pot-sized bet of 375. I then get a bet of 750 and a call of this bet. If I call this bet, I will be pot-committed as over 1/3 of my chips will be in the pot and due to this, I will raise and shove here. I do not want to bet any less than this, as by doing so, I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me... something I want to avoid doing if at all possible. I want to be making bets where I expect to gain chips, not ones where the opps expect to gain chips. --------------- I notice that this is from a 6-max table. This promotion is ONLY for FULL RING. Playing any type of table other than FULL RING once you receive a bonus in this promotion will make you ineligible for any further bonuses, so please only play the 9 player tables. With JT from the hijack, when it folds to me, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper, so I will raise to 30. I flop a flush and gutshot straight draw and have an opp lead into me for 70 chips. Now, I need to see if calling this bet makes sense. I need to call 70 chips into a pot that will be 290 (24.1%). I have 12 outs (9 from the flush and three other kings) and from the rule of 4 and 2, each of these outs is worth 2% to the turn, so my hand has 24% equity. With this basically being a breakeven play for me, I will call the bet. If the pot equity was more than my hand is worth, then I would need to muck. I also do not want to raise here, as this will increase my pot equity, and doing so means that I will expect to LOSE chips from it as the pot equity will be higher than my hand equity. The turn gives me a straight, but there is a flush draw and the opp leads into me for 100 chips. Here is where I need to raise and I will raise by 1/2 pot, to 365 chips. A 1/2 pot bet is my standard bet sizing for being against one opp. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
