            Hi kasparssveid! With KJo in the SB, I get 5 limps, then an abnormally large raise to 150 (a standard raise is to 3BB+1BB for each limper). While KJ is a hand with some potential, especially since I'm out of position, I need to muck this to the very large raise preflop. One common mistake that players tend to have is to play too many hands from the blinds because they already have chips in the pot. This is a big chip leak, as I only want to play very strong hands from the blinds since I'm out of position. If I saw the flop, which I would not, when I see that I hit top pair, I need to make a standard value bet. Bets post-flop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 opps in the hand, I need to make a pot-sized bet.. BUT.. I don't have this many chips, so I'd need to shove the flop. This can create a big problem too, because by betting less than the size of the pot with this many opps, they could be getting the correct odds to try to outdraw me. If I give them the right odds to draw and they do end up outdrawing me, it's my own fault that I lose the hand. The key here is to muck a marginal hand preflop when out of position. Good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                      Hi kasparssveid! This was an interesting spot! Preflop, 10Jo is fine to open with from late position. On the flop, you have the nut straight, but a flush is possible. Did you have any notes/reads on the sb? What type of hands has he called with earlier or what type of hands has he bet with post flop? A large portion of players at 2NL would slowplay the nut flush here, for example if he was holding Ax of hearts. They prefer to give the opponents a chance to bet into the pot rather than scare them off by leading out. On the other hand, any non-flush made hand such as one pair, two pair, sets, or straights might lead out hoping to get some folds. Also, Many overcard hands containing a big heart might bet thier draw aggressively. The bb folded which also helps you since you now only need to contend with one opponent. Your hand is beating everything but a flush. Additionally, you have the J of hearts. If another heart comes you might have the best flush. Now, if we look at the villain's bet size on the flop, he bet 20c into a pot of 18c. Again, this doesn't look like a bet that wants to get called. It looks more like he wants to get folds. If he were betting for value, I would expect a 50% - 80% pot bet, not an over sized bet. Had he bet 50% on the flop and again on the turn, I would be more inclined to give him credit for a flush. I think calling, as you did on the flop is good. You might have the best hand now and your hand can still improve if a fourth heart comes. Finally, notice the stack sizes. The villain only has 51bb on the flop and you have him covered. By calling now, we can expect that any bet on the turn or river will more or less commit him to playing for his stack. Raising all in on the turn is perfect and much better than calling. Much of the villain's raising range will consist of two pair, sets and A of heart x hands which he is hoping to improve on the river. It is important to bet now while you are still ahead AND while the villain still has hopes of improving. If you had called and the villain misses on the river, they will fold most of these hands to any bet you make. Raising the turn gets you maximum value for your hand. Yes, sometimes you will run into a flush, but the villain's line on the flop (leading with a more than pot sized bet) will more often than not be something other than a flush. Finally, note that if both of you were deep stacked, we would need to be more careful about stacking off here. Yet, with the villain's smaller stack, getting all in will be profitable. Well playedumbup: GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                              1. To build up a decent pot
                              2. To get the value for a strong or monster hand.
                              3. To protect our hand.
