There were 6 people in the round and a KJ on the table on flop.

Not sure if I should have played more aggressively as people folded when Villain_9 raised on the river anyway..

I didnt think the chances of someone having a 2 was very high - my mistake. Would you consider this hand getting "lucky" esp at the end? In normal play, should one NOT raise when with the 2s3h2c on the table..i was out of position i admit.

Thanks for helping.

Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.
He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Hi TFFFGB!

With 69o in the BB, it's a bad enough hand that I'd like to muck it, but since I can see the flop for free, I'll check and see the flop.

The flop totally misses me and with both a K and J on the board, I'm most almost always beat here. Due to this, I'll check and fold to any bet.

The turn misses me too, so I'll do the same thing... check and fold to any bet.

The river gives me a pair of 9's and when it is checked to me, I'll make my standard value bet of 1/2 the size of the pot 79 chips. If anyone raises me, I'm folding, but this gives me one chance to try to win the pot. I don't want to check, then have to call a bet, because I'll have absolutely no clue whether I have the best hand or not.
----------
With Q9s from UTG, I'm folding preflop. It's nowhere near a strong enough hand to play from UTG. I also do not want to open-limp. If I'm the first one to get into the pot, I'm either raising or folding and Q9s is not strong enough to raise with.

On a flop that is coordinated that totally misses me, I'm going to check fold. Bets post-flop should be based on the size of the pot and when players make abnormal bets, these bets are normally tells. An out of line shove like this just flat out looks like a bluff, so if I were the opp, I'm calling with anything that can beat a bluff.

The keys here are standard bet sizes and to muck marginal hands when out of position preflop.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Excellent!

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!
