                We are all over the world and in different time zones, which contributes to the delay in processing each participant. Sorry about this.

                  Hi Death8787! There are several important points to note with this hand. Firstly, it is a 6-Max hand. Please, only play Full Ring (9-man) tables for the duration of the Bankroll builder promotion. Playing anything else can make you ineligible for any remaining buyins! Moreover, full ring is much easier to learn on and be profitable on compared to 6-max. In this hand you are in the small blind with A7o with several limpers ahead of you. I actuallly recommend folding preflop. You are out of position AND A7o is extremely difficult to play postflop. Ask yourself "what am I hoping to flop?" You won't be flopping a straight draw. You won't be flopping a flush draw. If you flop a 7, you will rarely have top pair. And, if you flop an A, you will typically either win a small pot (the A scares everyone into folding) or you will lose a big pot to an opponent with an A and a better kicker. The best bet is to just avoid these hard spots by folding preflop. Raising as you did against so many players is not good. It is highly unlikely that everyone will fold. Therefore, you are essentially building the pot with a hand that is unlikely to win. If you had A7s, you might consider seeing the flop. Just remember that you are hoping to flop a flush draw, not a pair. As played, you flop bottom pair on a monotone board. You should check-fold every time here. Even if I had a non-spade hand such as , i would fold to the raise on this flop. On the turn, you make two pair, however at least one of the opponents presumably just made a flush. It is important to value your hand with respect to the board. In this case, two pair will pretty much never be good. Your only hope is to improve to a full house on the river and that will happen less than 10% of the time. On the river, you should definitely fold. Yes, the bet is quite small, but that does not matter when a flush is so likely. Try to be patient and stick to good position and good starting hands. It will make your postflop play much easier. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                          Hi Death8787! Opening for a standard raise preflop with is perfect here. You flop top pair on an interesting board. The villains could have Ax hands, but typically 3bet preflop with AK. So, I would assume you have the best hand at the moment. However there are several draws and one pair plus a draw type of hands. They may also have a wide range of suited connectors or smaller pairs that are scared by the A. C-betting looks good. However, there is 19c in the pot and two opponents. You want to bet at least 50% of the pot and preferably about 70% of the pot. This gains you value for your hand, protects against draws and is likely to get called by at least one player. Your bet was too small and allows the villains to coninue cheaply and loses you value. The turn pairs the 9. This is not a great card for you since any 9 just made trips. Moreover you are now splitting with any Ax except for AK hand since you both effectively have AA99K. Your kicker becomes irrelevant. I would fire another bet here. If a broadway card comes on the river. It is going to be difficult to know how to play. I prefer betting the turn, then checking down most rivers. You hand is not strong enough to expect 3 streets of value. As played, the river is not a great card for you. I would normally want a read on the villain to know which action would be best. Against many villains I would fold, but against others we can call or even raise. Here you are facing a bet of 2/3 the pot. So, you will need to win about 30% of the time to make calling profitable. There are enough hands in his range that you are beating or tying to make calling correct in this spot. umbup: GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
