            Hi Kon_k07,

            I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

            I notice you have posted out of turn. I suggest when you do play for real money to always wait for your big blind because you would be paying twice the blind in a single round and that would be a waste of money

            Once it's limped to us we could raise I think to 10$, checking is also an okay option to play a small pot with a marginal hand but the problem is that we may face a raise after us and loose initiative. Other than that, I think with the odds we are given its actually pretty close to just draw to a gutshot because a T is really all that we are hoping for and a T of diamond might also be a problem because it might give one of our opponents a flush so our outs are not even clean and we are just drawing to 3 cards or 6% chance to hit OTT.

                    3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet:
                    - To put a lot of pressure on opponents
                    - To bluff people off decent hands
                    - To gain value of very strong hands

                      I am not sure if I played the hand correctly...

                        ...but this is more interesting case because of my too little stack. What I already think is that I was not aggressive enough before the flop (2BBs instead 3BBs)...

                            Hi, Hand Analysis Sitting on a 50bb stack depth on the button we can certainly enter the pot by calling a middle position open. We'll have a postional advantage post flop and be able to see what happens ahead of us. Post flop, as played it's safe to check it down, there are 16 combos of these Ax hands A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 A9 AT AJA AQ AK and let's also factor in pocket pairs TT JJ QQ KK all of which may feel guns shy to bet considering there is an ace on board...but may call one or two streets for a bluff catcher considering this middling board texture. Well played. Hand Analysis We have 22bb, I'd elect to raise it the standard amount of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper..this will help to ensure value is made and a pot is built...i do bleieve one of the two villains would have called a bigger raise pre-flop, usually players that limp are indicative of being loose passive so let's capatilize on this oppurtunity to make more chips... Post flop, taking card removal intop account from the villains range as two 7's are present we can safely continuation bet 1/2 pot and expect to get value from inferior high card combos, 8x or random inside draws..over betting the pot is just going to induce to many folds. There is no need to worry about a scary turn card that may complete a straight...as the two card combos that complete a straight are going to account for such a small portion of the villains range and is considered minimal equity.. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
