Every single hand, unless you are Sitting Out (Away,) you will be deciding whether to Check, Call, Bet, Go All In, Raise, Reraise, Reraise All In or FOLD. Before you make your decision, you should be asking yourself a number of key questions: 1. Is this hand strong enough to Call more than a Min Bet with? If not, you should generally FOLD. 2. Is this hand strong enough to Bet or Raise with? If not, you should generally FOLD. 3. Is this hand strong enough to Re-Raise with? If not, you should generally CALL. 4. How much should I Bet, Raise or Re-Raise? This depends very much upon the hand you are holding. 5. Am I in a Position to do this? If not, you should re-evaluate your decision. 6. Or should I just Check or Flat Call here? This is rarely the correct choice, but occasionally it will be. 7. Do I have the Pre-Flop skills to play this hand well if I only partially hit on the Flop? 8. Do I know what to do here if I miss the Flop completely? 9. Do I know what to do here if the Flop looks like it may have significantly helped an opponents' hand or possibly given them a Flopped Flush or Straight or a great Draw? 10. Is this table Tight, Neutral or Loose enough to do this with this hand? If you are still unsure what to do, after asking yourself all of these key questions, you should probably FOLD.
