          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.

          Cheers.

            Hi tausharks! With A5o in the SB, I get 5 limpers in front of me. Since my hand is nowhere near strong enough to raise with, I need to fold. Many players play way too many hands from the blinds and this is a very large chip leak. Since I'm out of position post-flop, I only want to be playing premium hands from the blinds and should be playing the smallest % of hands from them. If I was in the hand (which I would NOT be), when I hit top pair, here is precicely the situation that I don't want. Yes, I hit top pair, but with a bad kicker and no raises preflop, I have absolutely no clue whether I have the best hand or not. If I did bet, I would need to make a pot-sized bet due to the large number of opponents, but since I have no clue whether I'm ahead, I will check and hope to see a free turn card. The turn completes a flush and once again, I have no clue whether I'm ahead or behind. Due to this, I need to check and hope for a free river card. If I did bet (which I would not), once again, I need to make a pot-sized bet. I cannot bet an amount less than this, as I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. The river is no help and since I do have showdown value, I will check and hope to get to showdown. If I did bet (which I would not becuase I don't know if I'm ahead), with 1 opp left in the hand, I would need to bet 1/2 pot. The key with this hand is to muck marginal hands preflop when out of position. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
