        Session Feedback Two players kept raising preflop but only min raise. Confused as to why they kept doing that.

              Hi AcmeX25! The first thing that I see with this hand is even before it starts. Whenever I sit at a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over is a huge drain to a player's bankroll. With K2o in the hijack, I get 3 limps in front of me. I'd like to muck this very bad hand preflop, but since the blind was posted, I will check and hope to see a free flop. If any of the opps raises behind me, I need to muck because I have a very bad hand, as it's nowhere near strong enough to raise with. If I did have a better hand and wanted to raise, I would need to raise to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise. Patience is a big key in poker and I need to learn to fold bad hands preflop and wait until I find a situation where I'm ahead, before I put chips into the pot. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                        3 reasons why a player might make a big bet:
                        - to protect against strong hands
                        - to put a lot of pressure on opponents
                        - to gain value from very strong hands
