          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.

            Hi Cellarcask! With JTs from the BB, I get 4 limps, then a smaller than normal raise to 9 and a call of this raise. Since I'm out of position, I need to either re-raise or fold here and JTs is not strong enough to raise with into this many opponents. Due to this, I need to fold. Playing from out of position is a big disadvantage postflop, so I only want to be playing better hands when in these positions at the table. If I had a stronger hand and did want to re-raise, then I would need to size it to between 3X the previous bet (27) and a pot-sized raise (37). I don't want to raise to less or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me... something that I want to avoid if at all possible. If I saw the flop and see that I hit two pair (which I would not), I need to make a standard value bet. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 5 opps, I need to make a pot-sized bet of 98 chips... BUT.. this make me pot-committed, which means that if I make this bet, I cannot fold. Due to this, I need to shove the flop. Once again, I don't want to bet less or I could be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. The turn is a scare card since it completes a straight to 89 and also a diamond flush. With one opp now in the hand, a standard bet is 1/2 pot (89 chips).. BUT.. this is over 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that I'll be pot-committed and cannot fold. Due to this, I need to shove the turn. While every hand can get lucky, the key with this hand is to muck marginal hands preflop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
