I appreciate everyone's in put on coaching. I'm going to take the great advice and use my subsciption here more wisely. 1/3 nl. There is a raise from middle position to 17 from a good thinking player. We have lots of history. There is one caller I've never played with before. I have Aces on the button. Should I min raise to 35 to and try and get some action or make it larger and basically turn my hand face up and take it down pre.

    I'd go a little more like $40-45. Since your on the BTN he may see it as a position raise and come back over or at the very least call. No ned to get too tricky at 1/3.

    Preflop is your best chance to get value here. I'd make it at least 45.
    Also , stack sizes matter since we'd like to be able to get stacks in gradually if we get lucky and our opponent flops top pair / overpair.

    If you can't get a call preflop at $45, you probably need to loosen up your image. Show a bluff now and then , or 3bet wider in position every now and then , etc.

    Stack sizes would be helpful. I would size a little larger to $50, $55, or even $60. It really depends on your history and your image, assuming you're a female. Let his ego get the better of him.

    two fifty effective. I did make it 50. Took it down pre.

    I think you can size it larger without "turning your hand face up". Your sizing shouldn't be based on just the strength of your hand.

    $50 is a fine raise unless you're super tight PF you should normally get action in this spot. CLP is definitely a good service and can help you beat the games. Go trough the curriculums.
