            Hi Ellia85! With a very bad hand in 35s from the BB, when an opp raises, I need to fold. Just because I have an A or suited cards does not mean that the hand is playable. When playing from out of position, I only want to be playing premium hands and I need to fold anything marginal or bad. The way that I look at hands from the blinds when someone has already raised... is.. if my hand is not strong enough to re-raise with (to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise), then I need to fold it. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet? 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. So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus. 1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer. 2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it. 3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz. Let us know as soon as you have all 3 tasks complete and we will award you with your next buy-in. Best of Luck!umbup: John (JWK24)

                      Hi Ellia85! Here you are in good position and facing a limper which normally means a weak hand. However, he did enter the pot from early position which normally means a stronger hand. Now, the big question you need to ask is what are you hoping to flop with your hand? Your hand has marginal strength. You can get a flush, but not the nut flush since you dont have the A. You cant get a straight draw either. If you flop a K, you need to be worried about your low kicker. In other words, this is not a good spot to attack the limper by raising. Just fold this hand preflop. It is too weak to play. As played, you get called and flop middle pair. The villain's range includes many Ax hands. We might take one shot at the pot, but when the passive villain leads out he will almost always have an ace. A guy like this wont bet until they have a made hand. Folding would be best, but calling the flop might be ok. When the villain leads out again on the turn, you should definately fold. Holding second pair is not strong enough to bet or call every street with. Be careful not to overplay single pair hands, even when you have top pair you normally shouldnt plan on getting more than two streets of value. GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX
