                      Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.

                      He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

                      Cheers.

                        Hi beturass222! With AKo from the BB, I get 4 limpers in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper or 14 chips. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, as this helps to conceal the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something that I want to avoid. I get a very coordinated flop that gives me the 2nd nut flush draw. With 4 opps, if I make a c-bet, I need to make a pot-sized bet of 66 as postflop bets need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 or more opps, a pot-sized bet is standard. However, betting 66 causes me a problem, as it's 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that I'd be pot-committed and need to shove if I make this bet. While I do normally like to make a c-bet here, I don't want to shove with just a draw that will not be to the nuts as if I get a spade, someone else can easily have the ace, so I will check and hope to see a free turn card. When I see that I hit the flush on the turn, if I have chips in front of me, I need to open-shove since I'm pot-committed. I do not want to check and possibly give an opp a free card to beat me. When players slowplay hands and get outdrawn, it's their own fault that they lose the hand, which I want to avoid if at all possible. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                          thank you john i do appreciate the advice as all is good i agree i made the wrong bet amount on the flop but after the turn i had a feeling that they were thinking they were strong and when i checked 3 of the 4 opps went in all in i had the king flush so i wasnt folding if i lost to the ace so be it thats poker but again john thanks alot for the advice the more i can learn the better
