    Hi Dwlboy! With A2, I need to muck this preflop as it's nowhere near strong enough to raise with. When I'm first into a pot, I need to make a standard raise and not limp. If a hand is not worth raising with, then I shouldn't be playing it. If I saw the flop (which I would not), when I hit top pair, I'm going to make a standard value bet of 1/2 pot. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. Due to this, I will bet 63. When the opp raises me, since I have a marginal-at-best hand, I need to muck. The key here is to fold marginal hands preflop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
