            Hi farfaranoos! With A8s from UTG, I need to immediately fold this, as it's nowhere near a strong enough hand to play out of position. If I had AK or AQs, I would then make a standard opening raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper, but A8 is not strong enough to do so. 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 hands are basically turning their card face-up to their opponents.. something I want to avoid. When any of the opps re-raises, A8s is not even remotely strong enough to call with. To call these bets, I need to have AA, KK or maybe QQ, and QQ could even be a fold. The key here is to muck marginal hands preflop when out of position. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    Hi farfaranoos! I'll take a look at the hand in post #8.

                    You're in the BB with KTo facing a raise. The best thing to do here is to fold. KTo is not a strong hand. It's a "trouble hand" that is often dominated by better kings. Playing it out of position in the blinds is particularly tough, so I'd just lay it down. Instead, you decided to re-raise. There are two problems with this raise:
                    1.) You only made a minraise, which gives good odds for the villain to call. A better size for a raise is three times the open, which would make it 18c.
                    2.) Most of your raises should be for value when you expect to get called by worse hands, but worse hands than KT aren't going to call a reraise. Only better hands will continue.
                    The villain 4-bets to 50c, which means you'll be all in if you call. Villain is never doing this with a worse hand than yours, so you're always getting it in bad. You call and get the bad news. You're a big underdog with KT vs JJ. You'll win this hand less often than 29% of the time. It's obviously a mistake to get all your money in when you're way behind. Indeed, you should generally only be getting your stack in with KK/AA and sometimes QQ or AK. KT is a trashy hand that should just be folded.

                    Hope this helps!

                    Cheers,
                    Arty
