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.

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner


Dear Raiser,

I observed the image of this table as very loose-aggressive. Even though I'm holding a category 5 hand (AJo), I entered the pot making the standard raise of 4BBs, after that I was put in all-in and I called by the confidence of my dealt hand. At the end, I've lost. So, can you see what did I mess up?

Thanks!

Sorry Raiser, just now I realized that in this hand was missing a seat. At the begining when I entered the table it was full. But even though I would like a feedback if you can. Thanks!

Dear Raiser, finally I got a hand that was full-table and of course, I lost a lot of chips.

The image of the table was the same I've described earlier: loose-aggressive. Although I was in middle position and holding a category 8 hand (K9o) I thought my hand was strong enough by the image and behavior of the opponents and I decided to enter the pot with the standard raise (4BBs + 1BB for 1 limper). I was 3-betted and I called for the pot odds and for the implied odds. The flop came and I made top par with a nice kicker. But by the flop-betting-round I became much pot-committed and I called all-in in the hope to make a trips or two pairs. Have I done wrong to lay down my hopes on these possibilities? And what else did I messed up?

Thanks!

Hi FPGP!

With K9o from MP1, I'm going to muck this preflop. It's a marginal hand and I'm most likely going to be out of position, which is a big disadvantage. Due to this, I'm going to look for a better spot.

If I did play the hand, I'd make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper and with 2 limpers, I'll raise to 5BB or 10.

There is then two calls, a 3-bet to 52 and a call of the 3-bet. With a marginal hand, if I didn't already muck, I'm going to muck here as K9o is not a strong enough hand for me to call a 3-bet with.

The key in this hand is to muck marginal hands, especially to a large raise.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Thanks John, I entirely agree with you and your feedback helped me a lot to reaffirm the concept that I have of the game. And normaly in this position with this hand I would fold immediatly, but this table was so loose-aggressive, so loose-aggressive, the opponents were playing with all kind of trash that I felt confident to move on. Besides I was motivated to make this move by the fact that it was a play money game. So now, I can assure you that in a serious game I would never play this hand in any Middle Position. Thanks, Fabio.

Dear Raiser, I'd had already taken the Poker Basics Course and had passed the quiz.

And I would like to kill a doubt: if in the middle of a hand a seat become empty, do I must leave the table and look for another full one?

Thanks!

Hi FPGP,

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.

For beginners it's not advised to play short handed tables, so if 2/3 seats become empty it's a good idea to stand up also. As you become better at ranging opponents and playing an aggressive game you will feel more comfortable playing short handed tables but for now try to stick to the full ones.

Good luck!

Raiser
