You will only flop a set 1 in 8 tries, and you will be facing overcards on the flop pretty much every time. You don't want to risk your whole stack on a preflop gamble here. Try to be patient and see the flop cheaply. If you flop a set, great bet every chance you get. If you miss, try to check down the hand and fold to any significant bet. In general, the only two hands you should be happy getting all in with preflop are KK and AA. With all other hands you shouldn't be risking your stack until you have seen the flop and have a strong made hand such as a set or better. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                              Hi AlexdCafrie! 78s can be a good starting hand under the right conditions. Preferably we should be in late position, have multiple opponents and most importantly, we want to see the flop cheaply. This is a speculative hand that usually misses the flop, but has the potential to win a big pot the few times you make a strong hand. Here from early postion, I suggest folding every time. If you are going to play and are the first to enter the pot always do so with a raise, regardless of your cards! This conceals the strength of your hand and gives you the possibility of getting everyone to fold. Calling the preflop raise is not good. Your hand is not strong enough to call with. Moreover, the villain has position on you which will make postflop play tough. You miss the flop, so check-folding would be your best choice. With speculative hands such as smaller pair or suited connectors we should fold all missed flops. This keeps our losses small. Checking the turn was fine. On the river you make a flush, but not the nut flush with an A. Also, the board is paired making a full house possible. In spots like this it is better to check and call a smallish bet rather than bet yourself. There are very few hands that you are beating that the villain would call with here. If you check to him, he might take a stab at the pot with two pair hands or Ax hands for example that you are beating. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
