      Hi TR1V1A,

      A couple of tough hands for you.

      In the first hand we obviously can't fold here AKs is too good. But we are facing a 9x raise UTG. this is very likely a strong hand from a weak player. That does mean the range of strong hands is a little wider, but all probably play pretty well vs AKs and after putting in 9x they will never be folding.

      If you are going to 3bet in this situation I think it should be allin. Anything else and we will be in a big bloated pot on the flop and if we miss the flop we are in no-mans land. I think we since we are closing the action a call behind is good see the flop if we don't hit a piece of it just check fold to a big bet on the flop.

        In the 2nd hand with this many limpers we definately want to raise this hand to get value and try and thin the field.

        60 chips here is way too small. 3x should be our standard raise size but we should increase it with each limper. Otherwise they will all just be getting great prices to call.

        I think a better raise size would be 120. It's a little smaller than 3x + 1 for each limper, but I think 120 does the small as 140 and will just control the pot size a little bit.

        Leading on the flop is tricky with this many opponents. I think a check raise allin would be better, I think it looks stronger like we could be slow playing a monster.

        If we had raised larger preflop and only faced 1 or 2 players then I think cBetting on the flop is better.

        Good Luck
        Andy

          With AKs, I'm actually folding because the open is ludicrously big and is nearly always QQ+. (I'm also an ubernit on the first orbit until I have a basic read on who the bad players are. If someone else wants to go busto on the first hand, then that's cool with me.)

          With AQs, a bigger raise should get you heads up. Multiway, it's a tricky situation. You got a pretty good flop for you, but you don't really want to get raised if you c-bet, as the price of drawing may get too expensive. So you could either check-call if the price is right, or check-raise big, repping kings or aces. If you get it in and get called, then at worst you've got 25% equity (versus a set) and as much as 45% vs a hand like KJ or KT.

              Not SNG but $1.10 MTT, I bought in 2mins before re-buy finished and hit a diamond BigSlick, thought its either a re-buy or a nice first hand and restored faith in AK
