                Hi oirishpaddy! With AK in the BB, I get 3 limps in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper and with 3 limpers, I will raise to 6BB or 12 chips. I want to keep all of my raises standard as this helps to keep the opps guessing as to the cards that I'm playing. Players that bet more or less based on the strength of their hand are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something that I need to avoid. I flop two overcards with a gutshot straight draw. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 3 opps in the hand, a standard bet is 3/4 pot, so I will follow up with a 30 chip c-bet. I don't want to bet less than this or I can possibly be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me, something else that I want to avoid. The turn puts another flush draw out there and with only one opp, a standard bet now is 1/2 pot (44 chips). However, with the opp calling a preflop raise and a flop bet, I'm going to check here for pot control, as I do not have a made hand. I don't want to make a large bet here as it just looks like a bluff. The bets the prior two streets were smaller than normal, so the larger than normal bet doesn't look right and when bets don't look right, they're normally bluffs. The river misses me and I'm going to check/fold the river as I only have ace high. ---------------- With AQ from the cutoff, I'm once again going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 3 limpers, I will raise to 6BB or 120 chips. I flop top pair/top kicker with 4 opps. When it checks to me, I'm going to make another standard bet. With 4 opps, this is a pot-sized bet of 730... BUT... this bet is well over 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that I'm pot committed. Due to this, I need to shove the flop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                          1,build maximum value for big/made hands

                          2,put pressure on opponents with medium/drawing hands

                          3,c-bet with complete bluff

                              Hi, Hand Analysis Did you have any reads on the villain? Sitting on a 45bb stack depth this hand shouldn't really qualify for a stating hand from this early of a position. With so many players left to act behind us, there is a good chance that a better range of Ax that has us outkicked is present, AK AQ AJ AT A9. Even if we flop top pair we really wont feel comfortable with it versus most villain dynamics. Post flop, I'd be keen to fold when the villain re-raises us, there are only a handful of Ax combos that we will split with, A4 A3 A5 A6 A7 and the rest of the villains value range can consist of a set (three of a kind) 99 22 aswell A9+. Hope this helps. Kind regards, CannonLee
