Hi juketemileto,

We can see that you did attend the session today. Did you find it useful? Did you learn something from it that you didn't know before?

Next Step

Next up play some 9-handed full-ring play money tables. Make sure the tables have no empty seats.

Find a hand that caused you difficulty or cost you chips and using the hand replayer post it here in the Forum.

Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.


Once you've posted your hand we will analyse it for you and then continue on from there.

This hand was a mess! I didn't know whether or not to play my cards and was unsure if I should've checked when I bet or put a bet when I checked. Ended up folding with no control of the hand whatsoever

Hi juketemileto!

With JTo from UTG, I'm going to muck this since I'm out of position. Playing marginal hands from early positions will do nothing but get me into trouble.

If I was in the hand, I'm checking the flop, as I have absolutely nothing.
I do hit a J on the turn, but with this many opps in the hand, I have no clue whether or not I have the best hand. Due to this, I'm going to make a 1/2 pot value bet here. My plan will be to muck to a raise and if I'm called, I'll check the river unless my hand improves.
When I miss the river, I'm going to check and hope to get to a cheap showdown. The opp in position, now make a HUGE overbet and shoves. With 3rd pair and a bad kicker, I'm going to muck here.

The key to this hand is to muck marginal hands when out of position, preflop.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Thanks a bunch, that was helpful!
I'm paying more attention to positioning now, though I still have trouble folding hands that seem good but really aren't all that special, such as J10, Q9, etc.

What's the next step?

Next Step

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 juketemileto,

Congrats on passing the quiz. Your first buy-in 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 buy-in to then only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as you will be able to earn another buy-in should this happen.

Use all that you have learned so far to try 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 analyze them for you.

Hi juketemileto

The main point to take away from this hand is the preflop action. Q10o isn't strong enough to raise with in this spot with a limper already in the hand. It might be ok raising as a semi-bluff since you have good position, but this will require good post flop skills. Until you get more experience, I would just call preflop keeping the pot small.

You flopped top pair which is good, but not super strong hand. Raising is the right thing to do, but I suggest raising about 70% of the pot rather than potsized.

The king on the turn makes a flush possible and is higher than your 10 pair. When the villain leads out for more than half of his remaining stack, it seems very likely that he has you beat.

In general, I try not to commit too much of my stack in spots where I only have a pair. Here in particular, you do not have top pair or top kicker. I would suggest playing it safe and folding.

I hope this helps.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Thanks a bunch! Now that I see it again, it really didn't make sense for me to stick to the hand. I "felt" he had nothing, but that was just whishful thinking.

By the way, what's the next step?
