Perfect, yes we can see that you attended. Did you find the session useful?

Next up please play some play money tables, full-ring, 9-handed only. Make sure the tables are full, that is, no empty seats.

Post a hand that you found difficult with here in this thread using the Hand Replayer.

Here is a video on how to use the Hand Replayer.


Once you post your hand for review we can continue on from there.

I was trying to isolate the limper and get a into a heads up situation, but I wasn't able to do it. Was the raise too small?
But I feel that in any case I couldn't call the all in because he could have hit a set but I did have 2 over cards.

Hi, just realized that the hand I added didn't have all 9 players at the table so here is a other one.

Don't really know how I should have played this hand. I knew I was a under dog beacause of my low kicker but I felt like I should bet to get people to fold who didnt have a Ace. What are your thoughts on the hand?

Hi Manufaktuuri

You played this hand perfectly
Preflop AQs is strong enough to raise for value and narrow the number of opponents. Your bet size looks good. At real money tables people call less than at play money.

The flop is very connected. Any of the players may already have a straight, or a set. Folding to the large bet was perfect. Don't call large bets post flop unless you have a strong made hand or good odds to call.

Well played! We can't win them all.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi again Manufaktuuri

Thanks for mentioning the open seats on your previous hand. Try to stick to full tables. It lets you make money easier

Aces with a weak unsuited kicker are tough to play. They too often result in big losses when we catch an A. In this particular hand I would have checked the turn and hoped to get a straight on the river. If I miss the river, then I would normally check fold, perhaps call if the bet is small.

In general, I recommend folding Ax with weak and unsuited kickers preflop to avoid difficult spots. Ax with a suited but low kicker is playable. However, we are only hoping to make a flush or straight with these hands. We need to be careful and keep the pot under control when we get top pair with these hands.

I hope this helps

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi,

Now we want to get you playing on the real money tables. Next up, and spend some time on this one , study the Poker Basic Course and take the basic assessment quiz at the end of that course.

Once you have passed this quiz your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours of passing it. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion.

Use this first buy-in to then only play the 1/2 cent fullring real money tables only on PokerStars. Post back here when you pass the quiz, get your first buy-in and start playing these games and we'll continue on from there.

Hi Manufaktuuri,

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!

Hi ,

We see that you attended the 'Bet Sizing' session on December 22nd. What would you say was the most important thing you learned from this class?

Now you have received your first buy-in. By following the steps as advised by your instructor you can earn three more buy-ins with this promotion.

Next step for you.

Use this first buy-in to 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.

Make sure the tables are 9-handed and are full, that is, no empty seats.

Post back here using the hand replayer a hand that you had problems with, or that cost you money, while playing with this buy-in.

Good luck!

Hi Manufaktuuri

Bad luck in this hand! There are some things you can do differently though. Firstly, let's look at the bet sizing preflop. Your original raise to 6 is perfect (3x). The villain mini reraises you. This should set off warning bells. Minraises are almost always a sign of a big hand, usually AK, QQ, KK or AA. Without a read, I would call, and prepare to fold on the flop unless I flop a set. A read on the villain would help here to know if 4-betting or calling is best.

If you are going to 4-bet, then make it 3x which would have been 36 cents in this case. You may have won the hand there and then. Minraising into a large pot is just building the pot in a dangerous spot. Getting 5-bet is rarely done without KK or AA.

I think we have to fold on the flop unfortunately. Unless you have a read on the villain. Without a read, I am giving him credit for having either KK, AA or maybe AK. Since you have QQ it is unlikely that he has the same hand. In which case he is a 60% favorite to win the hand.

As it turns out, you were ahead when you got all in and got unlucky on the river. Unfortunately it happens. Keep at it!

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi Manufaktuuri,

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.
