High stakes pros Haxton and co on overbetting

Ever been confused by the concept of overbetting? Put simply, overbetting is when you bet significantly more than the pot. There's $20 in the pot on the river and you bet $28. That's an overbet. But you don't need to hear anymore than that from me about it.

PokerSchoolOnline caught up with some of the game's brightest players - all members of Team PokerStars Online incidentally - who explain exactly what overbetting is, why you might want to use it and when you should deploy it.

If you want to hear what the likes of Ike "Ike Haxton" Haxton, Mickey "mement_mori" Petersen, Marc-Andre "FrenchDawg" Ladouceur and Alex "Kanu7" Millar think about it then click through to this Poker Bites video.
