                    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 emacha19! This promotion is only for FULL RING tables, while this is a 6-max. Please in the future, only play FULL RING for the games. With K9o from the button, I get a min-raise in front of me. Due to their being a raise, I need to muck this preflop, as it's not a strong enough hand to play. If I had KK, AK or maybe even KQs, then I could make a standard 3-bet to 60, but I need to muck lesser kings as they are not strong enough to call a raise with, let alone raise. If I saw the flop (which I would not), I see that I have a marginal top pair. I now get the opp that min-raised preflop that makes another abnormally small bet. Bets postflop need to be made based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With three opps, a standard bet is 3/4 pot, so if I raise, I need to make a 3/4 pot raise. However there is another problem with this bet and that is that this bet will be over 1/3 of my remaining stack, which pot commits me. This means that I cannot fold and need to shove the flop... something that I do not want to do with a marginal pair. Avoiding situations like this is why I want to muck the marginal hand preflop. I don't want to raise, calling is a play where I expect to lose chips because the bet's too small and I really don't want to fold top pair... a really bad situation where I don't want to make any of the three possible plays. The key here is to muck a marginal hand to the preflop raise. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                        Hi,

                        Thanks for the advise. I'm still very new to this so i'm learning slowly. I'm not very aware of betting percentages but now I am. You've been of great help.
