Hi adok4u!

With pocket 10's, there are two limps (posters) and a min-raise. I'm going to make a pot-sized raise to 13 here, as I try to size my 3-bets between 3X the previous bet (12 chips) and a pot-sized raise (13 chips).

I get a board with an underpair in a 6-way pot. I then get a min bet, call and min-raise. I'm going to raise here and due to the large number of opps, I'm going to size it at a pot-sized raise (86).

Everyone calls and I now get an overcard (jack). With this many opps in the hand, I'm going to be beat by one of them basically every single time, so I'm going to call anything abnormally small (like the bet of 2), but I will fold to any sizable bet. I do not want to raise here, as I'm most likely beat.

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 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!

3 reasons to make big bets.
1. To put a lot of pressure to the opponent
2. To bluff people off decent hands
3. To gain value from very strong hands

Hi adok4u

KQo is a decent hand, but you are under the gun here. KQ is not strong enough to open with from early position. I strongly suggest folding directly. I suggest opening with 1010+ or AQs+ from utg.

You get min-raised from another early position player. Min-raises, especially from early position are very often a tell of a monster hand from weaker players. You get a string of callers before it gets to you. This gives you good enough odds to call the raise, but the only good flop for you will be one drawing to a straight. The raiser will usually have QQ,KK AA and maybe AK or AQs in this spot. All of these hands have you dominated.

You flop top pair and the preflop raiser now raises again. Without a read, we need to give him credit for a big hand. You have top pair, but do not have top kicker, nor do you have a flush draw. This is a spot where we need to fold top pair.

As played your all in raise is much too big! You created a spot in which you got value owned. This means that you bet so much that any hand that you are beating will fold. This means that if you did have the best hand you won less than you could have. The only hands that will call your overbet are the hands that have you beat as was the case here.

I strongly suggest patience. Don't risk getting all in with just a pair. Wait until you flop a set or better before risking your entire stack. 2NL is tighter than play money.

GL and have fun at the tables!

yes, i admit i was impatient this game because i had a series of trash hands. thanks for the analysis, my betting here was really bad.i thought he was bluffing only or that he has a lower pocket pair. so i shoved so that he'll think im bluffing and falsely call. but yeah, it was a massive overbet and only hands that got me beat will call :/
