            Hi wcdz! Firstly, try to stick to tables that have a full nine players. This is especially important when you move to real money 2NL. Having a full table will allow you to be more patient and wait for better starting hands. From the Holdem Lobby, you can adjust the Settings to only show tables with 8 players. That way, when you sit down the table will be full. Here you have a very weak hand. If you ask yourself "what am I hoping to flop?" you will see that there are very few good flops for you. We want to open with hands that can flop well such as top pair strong kicker, strong draws or a set for example.Folding preflop would be best here. Also note, any time you are the first to enter the pot preflop, always do so with a raise - no matter what your cards! This is important to gain value with your strong hands. It is equally important with weaker hands and pure bluffs. For a bluff to be successful, your opponents have to fold. Betting/raising is the only way to achieve that. Here for example if you had opened by raising to 6, both opponents may have folded. By just limping in, you encourage the small blind to join the hand which in turn means you will now have two opponents that you need to bluff into folding. Raising preflop will hopefully get at least one of the blinds to fold. Also, raising looks strong. Thus, on the flop you can follow through with a continuation bet and represnt that your hand is still strong. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                      1) I sat down with full table but 2 players left after I posted big blind. Did I raise too much by raising 90? Also, I got excited and didn't go for the 34 cents. I have a question regarding bet size, in the guide it tells me to raise 4BB and +1 for each additional caller, when I have a monster starting hand, but some pros are saying 3BB, what is the difference between 3bb and 4bb, and should I change between 3bb and 4bb depending on the situation? I also noticed that, while reading tips here that good players stress on gaining max value while taking as little risk as possible, does this mean they will fold strong hands like QQ first hand in a tournament in situations like raise re-raise re-raise etc. 2) I would want make a big bet if I want to bluff people off of their hands, to pressure my opponent, as well as to win big with my strong hands. 3)passed the Cash Game quiz.

                          Hi wcdz,

                          I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

                          Good raise preflop. On the flop, I would bet bigger something like 2/3 to 3/4 the pot because there are a few draws out there that we are vulnerable to and we can also get called by worse Kx hands. When we are raised, we have to reassess our hand strength. We are beat against K9, 99, 22 but villain can also be raising their flush draws. Against hands like: { 99, 22, AdQd, AdJd, AdTd, Ad8d, Ad7d, Ad6d, Ad5d, Ad4d, Ad3d, Ad2d, K9s, QdJd, QdTd, JdTd, 8d7d } our hand is actually an underdog with 40% equity. But given the dead money in the pot, shoving over their raise means we need to win 33% of the time and since we have 40% equity against their range which I think they could continue with then it might be a +EV play to move all in for the rest of our chips. I don't like raising to 0.9 too much because we might be losing value if they call and see a turn that could improve them or shut them down to later bets. We could also call I think, but the problem with calling is that we give the opponent behind us good odds to call and we would be giving free cards to two opponents. I personally would just go all in here and expect to win 40% of the time.
