Please dont use caps that much, I think your best bet is to start with the courses, understand the basics and watch some of the starter videos.

first hand is just UL you gave him no odds to call but he did and he hit his out.

second hand should just have been check/folded on the turn.

First, welcome to the forum! In the future, if you have the entire hand history of the one that you'd like anlayzed, then you can also use the hand replayer (click on the tools link at the top of the page) and here is a link on the instructions for using it. It will give us more info from seeing the hand and can get you a better reply on the hands... from us having the additional info. http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/art...r-Instructions

In the first hand with AA, the thing you need to do is to raise more preflop. You had 2 limpers plus the small blind complete (basically a 3rd limp). A standard raise for this would be to 3BB + 1BB for each limper (in this case that would be 6BB or 600). The stack sizes for the others that limped would be good information to include too... because depending on what they are, I'd maybe even raise a bit more than to 600 (even shoved then, depending on the others stack sizes).
AA plays better against a lower number of hands and a larger raise may have gotten some of the others to drop. On the flop... your opponent had every right to raise your bet, as they were actually the favorite in the hand at that point (56% of the time they will beat your aces, with the flop that happened and their hold cards).
That's an unlucky hand, but you did price them into the hand to see the flop, by not raising more preflop.

In the second one, you just limped into the hand preflop. Normally, when playing a hand, especially if you're going to be out of position after the flop, you need to either fold, or raise preflop. Instead of just calling the BB amount, raise to 2.5-3BB. If you get re-raised, then your opponent will probably have you beat and you can fold then (losing minimum chips). Also, what you do not want to do is to shove when you may or may not have the best hand. In this case, while you did have top pair, there are a number of hands that have already beat you.... an overpair, or anyone with a higher card than a J could also draw to and pair their higher card on the river, or anyone with 35 or 58 has a straight.

One thing that you'll need to learn is that there are 7 cards in hold'em. your 2 and the 5 on the board. It's not the best hand at the time that wins.. it's the best hand after all 7 cards are revealed and you don't want to push until you know that you have the best hand.
Please take a look at the courses here (tab at the top of page) and also the videos (tab at the top of page). You can and will learn ALOT from watching them, also the live training sessions (also tab at the top of the page... along with this forum. You're always welcome to put any hand that's played in here to be analyzed.

Hi Cyclonia,

if you cant wait to get in to some trainings the trainers here are kind enough to tape the lessons. you can find some great ones here.


if you have a certain area you would like to start with have a look else maybe start with......


(sort picked at random but also is next one i will revisit)

Another good thing to do is browse the hand analysis forum. Some of us have (like you) put hands up and have had great advice from the folks here.

find that here

if the worst happens and you have a question,

create a post and ask it, chances are you will get 4 or 5 replies inside of a day.
