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.

Far too often we end up losing a big pot with the second best hand when we flop top pair, but lose to a better kicker to a villain holding AQ, KQ or A10 type of hands. Notice also that your Q10 is not suited. This means you will not be able to get a strong flush draw. Nor is Q10 connected like KQ or QJ are. This means that making a straight will be less likely as well.

As played, There is an A on the flop, two spades and four other opponents in the hand. It is extremely unlikely that you win this pot. I strongly recommend folding on the flop.

The best way to win at play money and at real money tables, is to be patient. Only play good starting hands and don't get involved in big pots post flop unless you have flopped a strong hand such as a set or better. This method works

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi monkey the k,

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!

Hello,

Thanks for posting this hand. I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you and offer some feedback. He should do this later today.

Once the hands have been analysed we can continue on from there.

Hey monkey the k

I think you played this TT hand very well. Let's review why.

Preflop: I think calling is best here because raising keeps better hands in the pot and folds out weaker hands. With TT you can decide on your hand strength after seeing the flop fairly effectively, especially against the player you ended up heads up with on the turn.

Flop: It is unlikely the player in position, who just cold called the raise, has a pair like jacks through aces. That means that unless they have a 3 in their hand or sixes full, you likely have the best hand. At the same time your hand is semi-vulnerable to over cards coming. Given these two things, a) having the best hand often b) being vulnerable, I like your check-raise for value.

Turn: Not much money left in the pot, if he hit a six, he hit a six. Our hand is too strong to fold and can still be called by worse.

Well played

Next Step

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.
