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.

Hi omote23!

The first tip that I would recommend here is to wait until the BB before starting to play at a table. By paying the extra blinds, this will be a large drain to a player's bankroll over time.

With KJs, I would make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper here and with 3 limpers (including me since I had to post blinds), I'll raise to 12.

There is then a call, an abnormal raise (a standard raise would be to 3X my bet) and a call of the large abnormal raise. While KJs is a hand with potential, it is not strong enough to call a large raise, especially when someone else has already called, so I need to muck to these bets and save my chips for a better situation.

Also, when missing the flop, all bets that I make after the flop need to be based on the size of the pot, not the size of the BB. I try not to ever bet lower than 1/2 pot on the flop or turn, as a bet lower than this will not really accomplish anything, as the opps will be price in to draw with basically any two cards.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Hi omote23,

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, please let us know and your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours of passing it and notifying us. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion.

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

Hi omote23,

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!

Hi omote23

Nice flop! Since there was no raising preflop, the pot is small on the flop. Since you are first to act, checking as you did is the best line. Notice it is possible someone has the fourth A, or possibly the villain has a flush draw. Either way, the only way to build the pot is to start betting and raising. When the villain bets, calling as you did is fine. Hopefully the third player will continue. However, if you call now, I would strongly suggest betting on the turn. If the villain is chasing, bet now while they still believe they have a chance at making their flush and winning.

The other option would have been to make a standard raise on the flop, making it about 12 cents. Without a read it is hard to know which will give you most value. Since your hand is so strong, I would probably check-called the flop, then lead with a bet on the turn.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi omote23,

The next thing you will need to do is to attend the Bet Sizing live training session. You MUST attended this session in order to continue on with the promotion.

The next Bet Sizing session is on this Wednesday and you can find it here:


Let me know after you you have attended this session.

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.
