Brilliant, now that you have watched the video you now know how to save hand histories from both real and play money games

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.

Hi,

I think you fell into the trap of over-valuing your hand here.

Preflop I think raising is fine, and you chose a good size to raise to bearing in mind the limper and the poster that had already come in. If you just chose to check, that would also be fine.

A tip for when you play the real money tables though - never post your blinds voluntarily, always wait for the Big Blind to come round to you.

Now on this flop you might feel that you likely have the best hand, however when you're against three opponents, one of them is much more likely to have an Ace than you might initially think. People tend to call with way more Ax hands than say Kx or Qx hands, so I'd proceed with great caution here.

I would probably just give on the flop and try not put any more money in, but betting the flop is not a bad option, getting rid of many non-Ax hands that can outdraw you. However if anybody calls, you should just give up unless you spike an 8 and even then, play with some caution as better full houses are possible.

The river is a clear fold. There is a zero percent chance that you have the best hand here, especially with the other player still to act.

Generally at the micro stakes when people start betting or raising the river, they nearly always have a very strong hand.

Brilliant!

You've passed the basic test and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

Step Two

The Poker Basics test was easy right? Well, there's a lot more to learn on the road to becoming a profitable poker player.

Now study the Cash Game course and once you think you have it mastered 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.

Let us know as soon as you have passed the Cash Game Quiz and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!

Hi,

Hand Analysis



As played everything was played fine. I like that you checked back the flop, this will allow either of the two villains to take a stab at the turn or river. I wouldn't be to concerned about a flush draw being present as that will account for such a small portion of a players range. If we want to get more value in this hand, I would have made the standard bet sizing on the river of 2/3 to 3/4 pot size, this will help to ensure value is made, betting anything less than this on these stack depths just wont have any merit... prime exampe being that the villain bet the turn which is indicative of a draw our a hand that they are willing to get to showdown with.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
CannonLee

Here's a hand. I had no reads on this opponent. I played very tight before this hand. Maybe I should not play the continuous bet on the flop here ?

Thanks for your help !

Hi,


Hand Analysis

Sitting on this stack depth we can certainly consider 3betting pre-flop for pure value, we have blockers to some of the combos for AA and KK, given our tight image we will get alot of respect if villain6 has been observant.

Post flop, we have the intiative in the pot plus we have position, a continuation bet has a lot of merit in this situation as the majority of a common flat 3bet range will consist of broadway holdings and pocket pairs 99+. Contiuation betting 2/3 to 3/4 pot size will induce a lot of folds, but if we get called I'd proceed to check down all the way to river for a showdown and fold to any bets.

Hand Analysis

A good rule of thumb when electing to bet for value is to make the standard sizing of 2/3 to 3/4 pot size, this will help to ensure a pot is built and it will get value from worse holdings... betting anything less than this amount may correctly price in inferior holdings to try and peel on a marginal draw or improve to three of kind/ two pairs. Keep in mind that pocket aces is the best starting hand pre-flop and just considered to be a pair post flop, with all of the possible combinations that one of the villains may have on this board texture... our pair just doesn't look to appealing especially with no blockers to the back door diamonds. There are 16 combos of all these holdings, AJ KJ K8 K4 T9 etc.. that is a lot of hands that have us beat and we haven't even began to factor in the diamond combos. As played, given our pot odds and the amount the villains have invested, we have to call... if the stack depths were much bigger I'd bet>fold to save chips.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

Thank you for these analysis !

What's next for the bankroll builder program ?

I tried the zoom tables. What is your opinion about these tables ?
I think I played the cards only because I can't get information on players. There is no table dynamics because the players are always different.

Thanks for your help !
