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 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,


What where your reads on the villain?
Sitting on this stack depth and position, it's worthy of seeing a flop at a relatively affordable price. I agree the villain might have had a range of flush combos in their range, so our course of action should be to get value from that range! Well played, I like your bet sizing post flop!


What where your reads on the villain?
Holding a suited broad way hand in this position on deep stack depth is a great situation. I like how you raised 5x to try and isolate the early position limper, by doing this it's ensuring that we could possibly get the pot heads up and improve our equity vs. a "limping range" usually perceived as a weak range.

The flop comes rainbow and we have top two pair, we can either check to induce a worse range to bet and then proceed by just flat calling their bet or take an aggressive line by check raising.

On the turn, our bet sizing is just a tad to big, there is no need to be afraid of the flush draw/straight draw as those range of combos have such a small amount of equity in the pot! I would have made the sizing 2/3 to 3/4 pot size to get value from a weaker range of holdings such as those draws mentioned above and possibly from Tx or Ax.

The river doesn't bring a card that really pushes us off of our hand..the stack to pot ratio is perfect to get stacks in! Very nice and pot! Well played!

Please only post full ring (9-max) ring game hand replays and not tournament hands, as your training is focused primarily on ring games (full ring).


Thank you for your patience!


Kind Regards,
CannonLee

Hi,




What where your reads on this villain?

Sitting in the big blind with a very strong holding With two limpers I'd make my pre-flop raise size 10c to 12c (3x the big blind + 1bb for each limper) this is for pure value, as our hand will play very well versus a limping range.

On the flop, I'd elect to bet 2/3 or 3/4pot and try to get value from a wide range of flush draw combos or the occasional Ax float. Keep in mind, a limping range is usually a weak range.

The turn is a tricky spot when the villain raises our turn continuation bet, effectively the villain has set up the stack to pot ratio for what would appear to be a river jam if we flat call the turn..this really put's us in a tricky spot as we nearly have identical stack depths..the villain could possibly have limped
a pocket pair and have a set (3 of a kind) or the completed two pairs..


On the river, readless, I'd maybe cry call this spot..based on their bet sizing..it looks like they do not want a showdown, the villain could easily have a range of 8x (A8 K8 Q8 J8 T8 suited and non suited) or busted flush + straight draws

It's very important to take notes on the villains at the table and observe the table dynamic, as this will help determine our course of action versus certain villains and make the hand analysis more informative.


Hope this helps.


Please take the Cash Game Quiz >>click here<< and let me know you've passed it and your 2nd Bank Roll Builder buy-in will be awarded to you!

Hi,



Doesn't flop to well and should generally be played in a small pot. the only advantage we with this hand is position (the button) When we raise this hand there is such a wide range of Ax that has us beat and A8/below we will most likely be splitting with these hands depending on the board texture.

As a rule of thumb, let's try and semi-bluff to equity as opposed to a stone cold bluff. You overall line post flop looks convincing..but should be proceeded with caution and entirely dependent on reads.




What where your reads on this villain?

Everything seemed standard, pre-flop, flop and turn but on the river that is a different story especially considering the middling board texture(flush and straight).

How active has this villain been in previously played hands? Even though we are getting a nice price to call the river, what range of hands is the villain
capable of going all in with on the river for value? Any flush combos, straight combos, two pairs and sets.


Hope this helps.

Also do not be discouraged about losing, you are doing very well so far and have been making very good decisions at the tables, I look forward to training you!


Kind regards,
CannonLee

The hand with KK, player shows too much limp in and agressive style, so i decide to call him because he bluff last hands a lot. And also I think I liked too much KK, the emotions takes me and I desperately call on the river
