Brilliant!

You can continue using this same thread, no worries you are still eligible and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

Step Two

Use your first buy-in to only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Post one hand that you had difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze it for you.

Please watch the following video and answer the question below.



List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

Then 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.

So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus.

1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer.

2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it.

3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz.

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 tasks complete and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Did you have any specific reads on the villain that raised on the flop? As a general rule of thumb, if we decide that our hand is playable from any position we should enter the pot for the standard sizing of 3x the big blind +1bb for any limper, I'd certainly like to think our hand would qualify as one of the holdings that would be in the top of our range. Usually a limping range is perceived as a weak range of holdings but that is not always the case, sometimes players will limp in with premium hands as a trap..but this going to account for like 3% of their entire range..

Post flop i think a fold could be found here, the villain could have limped a pocket pair trying to set mine or a completely monster over pair..read less a fold does have merit! well played post flop!

Hand Analysis

We do not have the correct pot odds to be calling a raise to set mine, we'd need close to 20 to 1 pot odds for our call to profitable in the long run! Although we are sitting deep enough to afford the call.

Post flop, this is a really dry board on each street, it's hard for them to have a made hand on the flop so i like the call to keep bluffs in the pot. On the turn this villain could pick up back door equity more often than some poker players would like to think we could elect to bet for thin value or check behind for pot control. On the river I'd just check back to save bets, it's hard for worse hands to call here besides high card everything else would have us beat...without any specific reads about their tendencies post flop...checking back is the best line on the river.


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

-to protect against strong draws
-to gain value from very strong hands
-to bluff people off decent hands

Hi,


Hand Analysis

Facing an under the gun range which is typically much stronger than other positions I do not mind flat calling preflop to try and make our hand post flop. The question we need to ask our self on the flop, what range of hands are we trying to get value from when we raise? Usually we will either get called by worse hands but we'll also get action from better hands such as three of a kind 6's or 8's and quite possible QQ KK AA which will consist of a small portion of this villains range. I would need really specific reads about this villains tendencies post flop to be raise>folding top pair top kicker on what would appear to be a dry flop texture, but there is some merit to it if the villain hasn't been doing anything out of line in previous hands.

Hand Analysis

I'd make my flop raise sizing about 15c this is to get value from all sorts of hands that this villain could be cold calling from the small blind. The villains leading range on this flop is usually going to be a weak range such as top pair, two overs to the 6 and 3, inside straight draw and I wouldn't be to concerned about he villains flush combos as that will consist of a small portion of their overall range.

On the turn, I may consider bet folding this hand as I do not see many bluffs in this villains range besides maybe KJo J9o, the villains line looks strong, but I'd base my call or re-raise all in solely on if this villain has shown aggression with mediocre holdings in previously played hands. There are still several hands that we have beat such as a bare range of Qx, but there are still combos that have us beat. Unfortunate spot with the best starting hand
in hold'em.



Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
