            Hi uzbektosh! With a really bad hand from the BB, when 4 opps limp, I'm more than happy to see a free flop. If anyone had raised, I'm immediately folding. I flop middle pair on a board with an A. I need to check and hope to get a free turn card. If anyone bets, then I need to fold, as they most likely have an A or better. I want to be putting my chips into the middle when I'm ahead, not when I'm most likely behind. Any hand can get lucky, but the key to consistently winning is to be putting chips into the pot when I expect to gain chips on average... not when I expect to lose chips on average. Patience is a huge key in poker. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    2 task is completed 1) I lost big I thought it's good idea to call 3 bet(6 cents) with KcJc. 2) Why a player may want to make a big bet? 1. to put a lot of pressure on opponents 2. to bluff people off decent hands 3. to gain value from very strong hands 4. to protect against strong draws

                        Hi uzbektosh! I'll analyse the hand in post #10

                        KJs is a good enough hand to enter the pot with in middle or late position if no one else has raised, but it's not a good hand to call a raise with, because it's often dominated by hands like AK, KQ, AJ. One thing you really shouldn't do is limp in (just call the big blind) as this is a weak play that doesn't give you an immediate chance to win the pot. If your hand is good enough to play, then come in for a raise of 3bb, to immediately put pressure on your opponents. As played, you just limped and the big blind raised. This is the first indication that you're losing. The raise indicates he has a big pair or big ace, so I would just fold to the raise, as your hand is never ahead. Instead, you call, and you see a flop of J74. This seems a good flop for you, but if villain was raising for value pre-flop (i.e. he had a big hand and wanted you to call) then you're only beating AK/AQ and TT. It's quite suspicious that he checks the flop, as the pre-flop raiser will usually make a continuatin bet whether he hit the flop or not. The only reason for checking here is because he missed the flop (with AK/AQ, TT) and doesn't want to bluff, or he has a very big hand like pocket jacks that flopped top set. In your position, I would make a half pot bet, and be quite pleased if he folds a hand like AQ, as that has 6 outs to improve to the best hand. Alarm bells start ringing when he just calls. He either has TT that doesn't want to give up just yet, or he has you crushed with JJ+. I would slow down on the turn, because I think you're either way ahead (against TT/AQ) or way behind JJ+. If you're way ahead, worse hands won't give you any action. Betting small (about half pot) might be OK, but checking for pot control is a good idea too, because putting lots of money in the pot with just one pair is often a mistake. If you bet, like you did, then you should plan to fold if you get raised. A check-raise signifies huge strength. Indeed, when I see someone take villain's line of check-call flop, check-raise turn, he nearly always has the nuts. Your own hand is far from the nuts. You bet 2 streets, which showed that you have a hand, but villain made a huge raise, which shows he's not scared. He can beat top pair for sure.
                        To a beginnner, this hand might just look like bad luck, and to some extent it's true, as you were unfortunate enough to hit the case jack on the flop and were still virtually drawing dead. That being said, you have to look at villain's show of strength and realise that top pair is no good. As a general rule (the so-called "Baluga theorem") if you get raised on the turn and you have one pair, you should usually fold, because one pair is losing.

                        Hope this helps!
