                Hi lc21007! With AQs from the hijack, I get two limps in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 2 limps, I will raise to 5BB or 100. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard so that the opps are continually guessing as to the cards that I'm playing. Opps that bet more with better hands or less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face up to an observant opponent.. something that I want to avoid. I flop two pair on a board with a flush draw too. When it checks to me, I'm going to make a standard value bet. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 or more opps in the pot, I need to and will make a pot-sized bet of 130. I don't want to bet less than this or I can be giving an opp with the diamond draw the correct odds to try to outdraw me. The turn is an undercard that brings more draws. When it checks to me, I once again need to make a standard value bet. With two opps, this is a 2/3 pot bet, so I will bet 207. I cannot bet less than this once again or I can be giving the opps the right odds to try to outdraw me. If I give them the right odds and lose, it's my own fault that I lose the hand. On the river, if the opps are still in the hand after calling a pot and 2/3 pot bet, I'm going to check here and hope to get to showdown. My hand does have showdown value, but may not be ahead. The keys with this hand are to make standard bets and raises and not just to call or bet too small. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Then study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

                    Hi,
                    3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet are:
                    1. To gain value from very strong hands
                    2. To bluff people off decent hands
                    3. To protect against strong draws

                    Quick question: Do I need to use the entire 2$ for buy-in in the Ring Game or can I use a lesser amount, as the minimum buy-in is 0.80$

                    Looking forward to your reply

                            Hi, Hand Analysis Sitting on just over 25bb we can certainly enter the pot for the standard amount of 3x the big blind from this position...generally a big blind defending range is going to be much loose, so it's nice to see them tag along. Post flop, you did a perfect job of building the stack to pot ratio, however I do think that we should have value bet this river by going all in for our remaing 15bb...there are plenty of worse hands that we can get value from KT QT JT, K9 Q9 J9, (16 combos of each of these holdings) Kx high card, Qx high. Any chance that you get to value bet, do so...this will help to make profit to cushion possible down sings that may happen...and of course help build your roll. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
