When you need more play chips, just click on the "chip tray" in the top middle of the game table. A box will pop up and at the top right of the box there will be a button which says "Add more chips." Just click on this button. The client will reload up to 1,000 chips a maximum of 3 times per hour.

Good luck at the tables.

whether I did the right choice folds at the end?
If I had not folded, I would have won.
But maybe I should have from the beginning to fold when my Reise re-raise???

Hi madklans!

With JT from the hijack and two limpers in front of me, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With two limpers, I'll raise to 5BB or 10 chips.
There is then a raise to 14 and with four others in the pot, I'll gladly call and see the flop.

The flop totally misses me and with four opps that could have hit a part of it, I'm happy to check and hope to see a free turn card.

The turn gives me a flush draw and when it checks to me, once again, I'll check and hope to get another free card. Another option here is if the opps have shown a tendency to fold, with a flush draw and gutshot straight draw, I could make a pot-sized bet here to try and eliminate some of the opps.

The river gives me a flush and an opp leads out for just under 1/2 pot. If this opp has been playing extremely tight, they probably have a larger flush and I'll need to fold. However, if the opp has shown any non-premium cards in the past, I'm going to call the 34 chips and hope that my flush is higher. The same with the small raise from the button. If they have shown anything marginal at all, I'm calling and hoping that my flush is the highest one.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Brilliant!

You've done all 3 tasks 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 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!

Thank you for answer.
I basically did almost everything right? I had not played for a long time with these people and I could not identify what players they are. That is why I was afraid, and fold.

Hi
1.Player may want to make a big bet:
*to protect against strong draws
*to gain value from very strong hands
* to put a lot of pressure on opponents
2.I pass the Cash Game quiz.
3.


Im in BB and my hand is weak so i just check. In flop comes out J... But i'm not in position and usually bet scares away players so i just call when aggressor c-bet. When came out second J i was pretty sure i'm a winner. But i don't know how much i should bet in situations like that?! So i just overbet.

Hi madklans! I'll take a look at this hand for you.

J7 offsuit is a junk hand. About the only time I'll play it is if I'm in the big blind and can see a flop for free, like you could here.
You flop top pair, but your kicker is terrible. However, the other two players only limped pre-flop, so probably have weak hands. I like to lead out here. It's hard to flop pair in holdem, so when you do, you should usually make a bet, hoping to get called by a worse hand such a draw. On this board, villains could have flush/straight draws with hands like T9s or 76s. So I'd make a value bet here.
As played, villain 1 bets 2/3 of pot. The standard play with your weak top pair is to call here, like you did. If villain has a jack with a better kicker, you're in trouble. If he has a set of 8s or 5s, you're in terrible shape. The other caller can have a pair too, or one of the numerous draws.
The turn is a small card, a 4 that figures to miss everyone, unless a villain had 76s. The bets are small again, so it doesn't seem as if anyone's hand improved here.
On the river, you make trips. You often have the best hand, because it's unlikely someone else has a jack, but if someone had a small pair that made a set, then they now have a full house.
Leading out for value is good, but it will be horrible if you get raised, as you'd usually be beat. If villain 1 has been bluffing all the way, perhaps with a draw, then you could check to induce him to put some more money into the pot, then call his bluff, but leading out is best if villains are passive.

Your overbet is actually a big mistake. When you overbet like that, you're not getting value. Worse hands will fold, and only the nuts will play. When you think you have the best hand, but expect villains to have much weaker holdings, then a smaller bet is best. Something like 12c might get looked up by second pair.
The basic idea is this: When we have the best hand, we don't want worse hands to fold. We want them to call. Your valuebets will therefore get called if you set a good price.

On the whole, you played this hand fine. It was just the overbet that was a bit silly. It might have been the case that both villains had flush draws that missed, so they were never calling a bet on the river whatever sizing you chose, but trying to get calls on the end should be your priority here.

Hope this helps!
Cheers,
Arty
