  • Was I stupid or just a bad beat?

    Your flop bet was too small, especially with multiple opponents.

    You should be sizing them based on the pot. Something around 2/3 to 3/4 here. Never 1/8 pot.

      Hi aReJay007,

      [Pre Flop]
      The call pre flop was ok, you had great odds to call.

      Once you hit the flop you have two options.
      1-Try to check-raise to trap your opponents and to get more money into the pot
      2-Bet big to not give worse hands the odds to call and beat you in later streets, in this case I would bet 70% to 110% of the pot against multiple opponents.

      Hope I helped you and good luck in your next hands!!

        +1umbup: 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, I cannot bet less than 3/4 pot or I'm potentially giving the opps the correct odds to stay in the hand. If I give them the right odds and lose... it's my own fault that I lose the hand. I also don't care for the preflop play. I'm out of position, so I either need to raise or fold preflop. This isn't a strong enough hand to raise with, so I need to muck. Calling raises with marginal hands out of the blinds is a huge leak that many players have.... and one I need to avoid. John (JWK24)
