Another hand I felt I as behind, with a re raise, I had no reads on the player. In the end I did have the best hand but oh well.

Hi Cashblow811!

In the AA hand, I would want to make a standard raise preflop. This will help to conceal the strength of my hand, as I'll make the same raise with AA, 22, AQ or any other hand that I want to play. My standard raise is to 3BB+1BB for each limper, so I will raise to 80.
When villain 4 shoves and it gets back to me, I am going to re-shove to try and isolate the one opp, as AA plays better against less opponents, but if the other opp (villain 2) wants to be in the pot all-in preflop too, I'm happy with that situation as I know that I have the best hand at that point in time.

In the 26s hand, I'm very happy to see a free flop from the BB.
I flop a flush draw and when it checks to me, I am happy to check behind and try to see a free card to complete my flush.
The turn is a miss and now villain 4 leads out for 2 chips and there are three callers. For me to call, I need to put 2 chips into a pot that will be 20 (10%). I have 9 outs, so my hand has 9*2% equity, which is 18%. Since my hand equity is larger than my pot equity, I will call the $2.
The river is a perfect card for me, as it completes my flush and does not pair the board, so nobody can have a full house. When it's checked to me, I want to make a value bet and my standard for this type of situation is 1/2 pot, so I would bet 12.
Villain 4 calls, villain 5 min-raises and villain 6 calls. With this action, I'm going to 3-bet here and raise to 3X villain 5's bet (72). If someone re-raises this bet, then I'll have to re-evaluate. I don't want to fold a flush here to a min-raise as there are many worse hands that could raise or call that I want to get value from.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi Cashblow811!

Your first $2 will be credited into your account within 24 hours. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion.

Use this first $2 to then play ONLY the 1/2 cent real money tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you get your first $2 and start playing these games, along with a hand that you had problems, or that cost you money, while playing with this $2.

Good luck!

Sadly, I did the wrong thing, I took the chance for the Runner runner flush, although I didn't put the aggresor on KK I put him on AQ A10 or something like that.
So I lost my $2

Hey Cashblow

I think you could have done a few things to improve your play in this hand, none of which have to do with the river. I think the river play is fine and you just got unlucky to run into KK in this situation and for the river to be the K of diamonds.

As it happens I think you should fold before the flop. Maybe if we had a stack to match our opponent's 5$ stack we could call, because then we could win all 5$ of his when we make a big hand like a straight or a flush. In this situation we can only win 1.77 from him and I don't think that is going to happen often enough for us to call with 98s here.

The thing is that we are in the small blind, which is the worst position to play from no matter what the circumstances. We are going to act first after the flop on every street against anyone -- we're at a real disadvantage. So when we are in the small blind we should have high requirements for entering a pot.

So before the flop I would fold. On the flop I would check and call, as opposed to leading out. If we check and call we allow our opponents to bluff with hands like QJ/KJ/AJ/AQ/AK. We are a favourite against all these hands and are happy to have them fire at this flop. We also don't want to bloat the pot, because we have second pair -- a medium strength hand -- and if we lead out our opponent can reopen the betting as they did.

When we hit this turn and this river we should and must really continue in the pot. There isn't much to remark upon on those later streets! But definitely ask any questions if you have them
