Hi,


This hand is a fold pre-flop versus a tight villain on the button, what where your reads on this villain? On that flop, the villain gave us about the correct pot odds to call with our hand. On the turn we hit the nut straight, I like the line of check>raise instead of leading out and betting this hand..as we want to keep all of their range in the pot. By the way, please focus on playing at a Full Ring 9-max table..as your training is based solely on that game format.

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.


Good luck!

Hello Cannon, whats up!?

I got what you said about only playing in 9-max table, its actually a good thing for me, a beginner.

I chose to play that hand and that kind of table because i was reading around and ppl said that 6-max table you'll eventually play more hands than usual. Because of that i wanted to practice a little more about the first "overview" of the game and setting up the rules right in my mind.

My reads about the villain(s) is that everyone paid the raise so i thought that everyone could have Jacks to Aces combinations or middle pairs. With that in mind, i thought that my chances of hitting a pair of nine, jacks or even straight or flush were increased. However, after thinking about your advise and reading on the beginners course, i realized that my chances weren't so big after all..


I Have good news.. i managed to pass the final test of Poker Basic Course. Im very excited ..

Thanks a lot...waiting for feedback and already starting to study the next courses.

Cheers

As support has stated please wait 48hrs.

Until then, I'd like to suggest the No Limit Cash Hand Analysis Forum >>click here<< to read up on. We have a lot of poker enthusiasts that take part in discussion of strategy/theory frequently, I believe you might fancy this forum.



Thank you for your patience.


Kind regards,

Hey Cannon, whats up?!

Analyse this hand, because i think i was OK but unfortunately i lost the 2$ money that you guys deposited..

Anyway, here is the hand:



Maybe i should re-raised him 3x , not 2. Please give me some hint and advises about this kind of situation.

However, thanks a lot for attention and i will continue study the course and playing the freeroll tournaments and "play money" until i get more cash.

Hi,


This hand is worthy of a raise in late position with limpers ahead of you. As this hand can hit relatively well(flop equity to a straight or flush) vs. a limp calling range.

On the flop, this is a really draw heavy board..there is a flush draw and straight draw present and there is also the possibility that combos of K9 and AK could have us beat. First off..what where your reads on the villain?

Read less I'd make the raise size on the flop 35c to 45c, this will get maximum value from a really wide range(Qx, Jx Tx, Kx, Ax, flush draws..straight draws..two pairs..three of a kind) as this board hits super strong with just about everyone's post flop hand range.

On the turn..this is really a tricky spot..with reads on the villain (have the been playing passively/tight post flop in previous hands)I'd probably fold this hand..surprisingly..the villains line looks just like a flush draw that got there..


Please take the Cash Game Quiz, when you have passed it let me know and your 2nd Bank Roll Builder buy-in will be awarded to you!

Good luck!

Hello Cannon, whats up?!

Thanks you very much for the tips.

About the 98s raise pre-flop, this one i was following the rules and, according to the course and forum, with a hand like that (mid-high suited connected) i should just pay a small price to see the flop. After all, with a lot o villains calling, i though they could maybe have K9, KQ, JQ, A9, mid-pairs and so one, meaning that they could just call to see a cheap flop too and hit a better hand. I really didnt thought they could have AK because on pre-flop it could had a raise.

As i was in advantage position and realyze too that was a really "wet board", i've just waited too see they act.The first 3 villains called (meaning most of the times that they didnt hit the best hand) and the 4th bet 10c. Then i agree with you that i could have re-raised more (3 to 4.5 times), yet after realize that that villain (i observed his history) wasnt playing very tight (he limped with 73c...cmom the worst hand in poker..hehehe). That way i could just make him fold and win the pot.

In the turn, he checks and i could just had checked again after thinking about it (i didnt really thought that he could have a flush..but now im aware ). I thought that he could have a 2 pair or waiting for a bigger sequence, based on his actions. Anyway this one is a good learning for me because i got a lot of tricky situations like you said and certainly its making me a better player.

However this kind of situations trains me to deal with losses when you think you are huge. It helps me keep realistic and feet on the ground. What you think?

By de way, i passed the Cash Game Quiz, uhull
Waiting for the deposit.

Thanks a lot again Cannon for showing me another and better point of view. It really helps.

Best regards,
Verarlockloy
