            Hi geegee95,

            I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

            Nice hand! I want to raise this hand and build a pot. I would make it 10$, but it seems at the play money tables many players are calling big bets too loosely. So yea why not double it

            I think you missed value on the flop though. We should be betting the flop with our overpair + nut flush draw.

                        Hi geegee95! There are several important points to note with this hand. Firstly, it is a 6-max table. Please stick to Full Ring (9-man) tables for the duration of the bankroll builder promotion. Playing anything else will make you ineligible for the remaining buyins. Full ring is better to learn on becuase you can be patient and wait for good spots. On 6-max you are forced to play many more hands which creates tough postflop spots that one needs experience to profitably handle. Preflop, you have a marginal hand with Q8s. It might be playable, however, limping in is not a good idea. As a good general rule, anytime you are the first to enter the pot, always do so with a raise, regardless your cards! Raising gives you an immediate benefit in that everyone may fold. This is important with semi-bluff hands such as you Q8. Secondly, if you riase your strong hands and limp your weak hands, you will be bery easy to play against and will get exploited. By always raising the same amount, you conceal the strength of your hand whether you have AA or 72o. As played, you played the hand fine postflop. Your kicker is fairly weak. So, calling the bets is fine. On the river, I would sugget a smaller bet, anywhere between 50% and 100% of the pot. This is an amount that many hands you are beating such as AJ will call. Remember, always open with a raise. AND, stick to full ring GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
