      Hey Xeonz,

      I'll move this over to the Beginners Questions for you :)

      On subject, have you heard of our "Call20" rule?

      Here is a description from this Article:
      How to play before the Flop

      When you have a pocket pair smaller than AA or KK, you can make an exception and call a raise, as long as both you and your opponent have stacks at least 20x the amount you're about to call.

      Just like when you follow the Call 20 rule from the Starting Hands Chart, you are speculating on hitting three-of-a-kind on the flop. If you do hit, chances are good that you'll be able to win your opponent's entire stack.

      I'd suggest you read the entire Article, its has some very good Strategys!
