        Bankroll Builder Hand Review In this hand after the river appeared there was only me and two others left, I went all in causing them both to fold out. Even though I did win I was wondering whether I should instead bet a lower amount like 50 or 100 to try and keep them in so I could win more money, or would that be too risky considering I only had a pair of kings?

            Hi, Hand Analysis I would have entered the pot with a raise for the standard amount of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper, this will help to ensure a pot is built, we'll have the initiative post flop and it will likely thin the amount of players involved in the pot which will greatly improve our overall hand strength/equity. All of these little things mentioned will add up to make our decision making much easier post flop and quite possibly using our position as leverage. Generally a limping range is perceived as a weak range of holdings and as stated above our hand is worthy of a raise as it has plenty of post flop playability for top pair decent kicker, flush and/or straight. Post flop, even though a limping range is usually weak...depending on the villains dynamic/tendencies/hand ranges, there are some Ax combos with a low kicker that may be considered the bottom of their range (weak) A2 A3 A4 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 A9 (16 combos of each hand). We could elect to semi-bluff as our equity is decent, a bet sizing of 2/3 to 3/4 pot will accomplish one of two things..1.) we win the pot uncontested and the villains fold 2.) we get called and the pot is being built for when we hit our draw so a decent value bet sizing can be made. As played on the turn and river, it's safe to check for pot control or make a small value bet sizing of about 1/2 pot with the intentions of folding if we get check raised... Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee

                    Queen of Clubs & 9 of hearts In this hand I started with Queen of Clubs & 9 of hearts. I was in the second under the gun position and decided to call the big blind of 2 cents, but decided to later fold when someone in a later position raised by 10 cents. I know its not good to play a hand unless it's really good from this position because of that, but I was wondering whether my hand would be considered strong enough to have called the 2 cents or whether it was the sort of hand I should've just folded at the start?

                        Hi T-Wort1464,

                        I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

                        I don't advocate limping into pots with weak hands to see a flop. We are better off raising or folding when we are first in into the pot. When we are the aggressor we have initiative post flop and we can continue with our aggression to take down the pot even when we miss. Here with Q9o however, we should be folding. We are in EP with a marginal holding that does not flop well. When we do hit TP we have kicker problems, and when we do hit a 9 our hand would be vulnerable to overcards. Our hand does not flop well post flop. Its a hand that I would raise from the BTN to steal the blinds but not from any earlier position.
