Action to you: You are first to act.
Question: Do you call or raise, and, if you raise, how much? Answer: Calling is almost out of the question. Your hand is probably the best hand at the table right now, but won't look good if several players stay and a couple of overcards appear on the board. Your job is to narrow the field, and go up against hopefully just one, but certainly no more than two players. At the same time, there's no need to overbet the pot. You should raise three to four times the big blind.
Action: You raise to $30. Players B, C, D, E, and F all fold. The button and the small blind call, and the big blind folds. The pot is now $100, and you're in the middle between two opponents.
