              Hi thekiller795! With QQ, I get two limpers in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 2 limpers, I will raise to 50. I don't want to raise to less than this, as doing so can give the correct odds to the opps to try to outdraw me... something that I want to avoid. I then get a min-raise and 2 calls. I'm going to 4-bet here and the key is the sizing of it. I need to raise to between 3X the previous bet (150) and a pot-sized raise (245). With 3 opps in the hand, I'm going to pick the top end of this range and raise to 245. I then get a shove and a call of it. With a premium made hand in QQ, I'm going to call in almost all instances. The only way that I even consider folding here is if the opp is a total nit and could only show up here with AA or KK. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet? Then study the Cash Game Course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this. So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus. 1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer. 2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it. 3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz.

                          Hi thekiller795,

                          I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

                          I think with AQs we could call in the BB and play the hand MW. A suited Ace is good to play in a multiway pot that and our hand beats a few worse Ax, Kx hands. I think 3betting the hand is a bit tricky because the raise is coming from UTG which I think their range is fairly tight to start with so by 3betting we might only get called by premiums and fold out all hands that we already beat like AJ, AT, KQ, KJ, QJ. Also we are bloating the pot OOP against a tight range so against an UTG open I think AQ is not in my vale 3bet range. I would prefer a call preflop even though I will have to play the pot OOP without initiative, but that should be okay because with a suited ace in a multiway pot we don't need too much initiative anyways. I also think your 3bet sizing is awkward and it would hardly get folds so it seems you are doing that to take initiative in the hand and build a pot? I personally don't like it. If I want to keep their entire range I would just call.

                          As played, cbetting this flop is mandatory with two opponents behind us I think but we have to be careful when we get called because we are now losing AJ, AK (though most of the time we will get 4bet), and splitting with AQ so we need to be folding if we get raised on later streets unimproved. OTT I think we could have taken a pot control line by check-calling since our hand now is hard to get 3 streets of value from worse because of their range in EP.

                          I don't think our hand will be good by the river when they raise us so I think we should be folding although we have invested so much into the pot already and that's because we bloated the pot MW by 3betting our hand.
