The next thing that you will need to do is to attend one of the 'Getting Started' live training sessions.

Hi SasoriHayate

Nice pot!

Suited connectors make great prospective hands along with Ax suited and small pairs. However, hands like this normally miss the flop forcing us to fold. I recommend having several conditions in place before playing prospective hands.

1. Late postion. In this hand you are in early position. Normally we need to fold to a reraise. Here there were so many callers that calling was fine.
2. Several players already in the pot. This increases our chances of stacking someone when we get a good flop.
3. Deep stacks. Both our stack and the opponents need to be fairly deep. Otherwize we cant win enough to make playing these weakish hands profitable.
4. Have real suited connectors, not gappers like 8 10.

Since you were in early position, I would recommend folding preflop. Hand you been on the btn facing the same raise and string of callers, then yes call.

Checking the flop and turn was good. I'm not sure about the river bet though. You have two pair which looks great. However, you do not have top two pair, and there are several straight possibilities, especially with the 9. Against so many players it is likely that someone can have a better hand than ours.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi SasoriHayate,

You've passed the basics quiz, congrats on that!

Your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours.

Use this first buy-in to then play ONLY the 1/2 cent full ring real money tables only on PokerStars. Playing any other game format will disqualify you from being able to obtain further buy-ins through this promotion.

Post back here when you get your first buy-in and start playing these games, along with a hand that you had problems, or that cost you money, while playing with this buy-in.

Also, please attend an 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This should help too.

Good luck!

But he called my raise with 9Jo from UTG2 and i put him on AK, AQ, AJ, JJ, TT, QQ.... but not 9J. Ok i made a mistake my bet size was that of a fish after the flop i know that but what can i do? Please help i lost my buy in btw i made 5$ and i lost them. I'll aim for the next buy-in, i'll try to practice more(( but i don't see any hope in me.

Hi SasoriHayate

Tough spot! I have been there myself many times. Let's take a closer look. 3-betting preflop was perfect. I stick to the standard 3x, but 22 cents was fine. When the villain calls, I would give him a slightly wider range than you did.

The flop is not too great for us, there are flush draws and straight draws, plus QQ is definately in his range. The villain leads out which often is a sign of weakness, but not always. I would definately do as you did and reraise. However, stick to standard bet sizing. Here 3x his raise makes it 60 cents.

Now when he 3-bets you, we need to get concerned. Postflop this normally means a strong made hand. Facing so much action, I suggest folding KK. As I often remind myself, "it is just a pair". We need to be able to get away from top pair hands when facing all in situations. Learning to reduce losses in spots like this has been the key to improving my own game.

I was surprized to see he had J9 too, but I was not surprized to see that he had a strong hand.

Two other points worth noting. Firstly, if you are feeling "unlucky" perhaps take a break for a day or two. Regroup and come back with your A game

Secondly, try to stay on full tables. Playing short handed is much tougher. You can adjust the filters in the Holdem Lobby to only show tables with 8 players. That is what I do.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi agian SasoriHayate

Bad luck with QQ here! You plaed preflop and the flop very nicely.

On the turn we can raise, as you did, or check. Knowing which is best is a bit read dependant. What type of hand would the villain limp call preflop with, the call our flop bet? Is it a sign of strength or weakness? If we are unsure, checking the flop may be ok. If he checks, then he is probably weaker than us, if he raises then we can start giving him credit for a strong hand. I would call the raise either way.

On the flop, the villain suddenly ways up and moves all in by by making a bet larger than the pot. Again a read on the villain would help knowing what to do here. Is he capable of making this move as a bluff? Without a read, I am always averse to very large risks when we might not have the best hand. Here, AA,KK, 55, 44 and any 3 beats us. Without a read, I would fold. Tough spot though, against looose aggressive players, I would probably have called too.

GL!

Hi SasoriHayate,

Now it's time to study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

Once you've passed the quiz post back here and we'll continue on tomorrow.

Brilliant! Your second buy-in will now be awarded within 24 hours.

Use all that you have learned so far to again play some real money games (1/2 cent tables).

Post any hands that you have difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyse them for you.

Also, attend the 'Cash Basics' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section.
