Hi MladenV,

You are eligible for the Bank Roll Builder promo!

The next thing that you will need to do is to attend one of the 'Getting Started With Pokerstars' live training sessions. Please let me know after you have attended this session.

Also, you can be practicing on the play money NL full ring tables and please post a hand that you were not sure about, using the hand replayer. Here's a short video on how to use the Hand Replayer

Maybe i should rr when 9 hit the turn? But this is play money i think they would call especially villain4 . So when i think about it, i played this well. Only thing i could do is if i am folded before flop .

Hi MladenV!

The first tip that I'd recommend is that when sitting down at a cash table, to always wait for the BB. Paying extra BB's will be a large drain to a bankroll over time.

I see a 4-way flop and hit top pair/good kicker. There is an abnormally large open bet (2.5X pot), then a min raise of it. While I do have top pair, I could easily be beat here and due to this, I'm going to muck the flop due to the overbet and raise of the overbet in front of me. Any realistic opp here is going to at worst have a Q with a better kicker, if not a set.

If I was in the hand (which I wouldn't), when I hit 2 pair on the turn, I'm going to make a pot-sized raise to 278.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Sorry, i don't know if this is the right place for this thread but i need to tell u guys with who u are dealing with. So i will tell u my poker story.
I started playing poker about year ago. In one small online poker room, (only Serbian players) and i played cash games until i lost my first deposit, and i gave up. But then i started playing freerolls and i started to be wary good, that was tournaments with about 200-500 players. I was at least 25% making it to the money and couple of times i was at a final table, once i won. I also played some live tournaments with 20-40 players, i also did wary well there. So i can say i am pretty good at tournaments. But at cash games i suck ! I think i am playing to loose and that is the reason why i joined this poker school, to learn to play cash games the right way. And thank u all for helping me with this...

Oky... I played my first session 1 hour session. Buy in 2$ after 1h i left the table with 2.40$ .
And now i have couple of questions:
1. How much i should be making in 1h on 1/2 cent blinds?
2. When i should stop playing? When i am winning and when i am losing . Should i stop after double up my buy in or what ?
3. I played only 10%-12% of hands. Mostly in bb and late positions, is that to tight?
4. I won only one big hand i slowplayed it with full house hoping he will catch flush draw. And i get the max out of him i think.
That was this hand tell me what u think about it.

He mucked 3s Ah . So i think i got the most of this hand?

Hi ,

In this hand I would have generally started betting sooner rather than slow playing. We'd like to grow the pot if the villain will cooperate and checking keeps it small, instead of growing it.

On the river getting raised is fantastic news... it indicates real strength so it's reasonable to think that he's got at worst trip 5's, if not 44's full, 2's full, or A3. Because his range looks so strong when he raises the river here, I would actually reraise bigger, and I think shoving is good in spots like this where the villain rates to have a very strong 2nd best hand. Don't get me wrong, I love the fact you raised again and your sizing was good for normal circumstances, but this one isn't quite normal in that his range rates to be so strong here on average.

1. This depends solely on your win rate. If you're newer to the game you're not a winning player yet, but you're in the right place to get on the right track.

2. I stop when I'm losing steadily, not thinking clearly, not feeling good, am distracted... anything that indicates I'm not on my "A" game.

3. Playing more in late position than early position is good. As for % played it's not bad necessarily depending on the table. Also as you're starting the learning process, playing tighter is ok while you get some experience under your belt. Tighter ranges will lead to easier decisions and less spewing in general. As you learn more and get some experience and comfort level, you'll start to recognize spots to open up your range and play more hands (rather than trying to force it now and thus doing so haphazardly and in bad spots).
