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.

Cheers.

Hi NLStark! I'll take a look at this play money hand for you.

A hand like 33 is rarely going to be the best hand at showdown if it doesn't improve to a set of trips. With this hand, you want to see a flop cheaply and see if you can spike a set. If you flop a set, you can bet/raise and try and get all in for a double up. If you miss the flop, you can fold.
So I like the over-limp. You have a great price to see if you can hit the flop.
Suddenly, the button goes all in for 399 chips. Now you can't see a flop cheaply at all! Even if it's just one player going all in, pockets 3s doesn't have much chance of winning. If this villain had 72, you'd win the hand about 70% of the time, but he's more likely to be shoving a bigger pair or two big cards. Against that range, you'll only win about 40% of the time. It's not a profitable play to contribute 50% of the pot when you'll win it less than 50% of the time.

Folding becomes even more of a good idea when three other players call the all in shove. There are just too many overcards out there, any of which will beat your lowly pair. Since you won't make a set often enough, you should definitely fold here. With 4 players all in in front of me, about the only hands I'd call with would be KK and AA.

At least you recognise this play would not be good on a real money table. Try not to get into bad habits on the play money games. Play solidly according to the PSO tutorials, and then you should be able to make money when you transition to the tougher 2NL tables.

Good luck with the next stage of this promotion!

Cheers,
Arty

Thanks Arty for the tips provided, you're absolutely right. I hope I have not made ​​a bad impression based on this hand. I would be more than happy to receive feedback on another hand



Im on BB and i dont have to pay to see the flop. Nice straight draw at both ends. I havent bet because of the hearts and eights. Dead turn. And I hit the 9, I decide to test the water and the buton push with nothing I asume but I dont take the risk because the pot value and my poor kicker.

I hope I played this hand better. Thanks for your support !

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!

From what I see above I breached the rulles of this bankroll because I played 6-handed 0.01/0.02 ZOOM and I am sorry. The overall experience is good for my first session, in whitch I have lay down more good hands than I expected, because to much action before me.., I have chosen to be the aggressor instead, thats why I did not lose any big hand.



In this hand I call to see the flop. I call on the flop because I want the button in the hand. On the turn because of my previous calls and the SBs check I value bet 35% (sound like a bluff on my part) and I win the hand




In this one I want to show aggresion pre-flop, and I get action from 3 other players... how nice...I put everyone on a high ace, and it goes from that

Unfortunately you have to post the hand where YOU lost the money with, posting other peoples hands is trying to cheat the promotion and will not be allowed, sorry.

Let's not worry about it and just move on.

The main focus here is to help learn the game a bit and award you these bonuses and that's what I want to do.

I'll give you another $2 to get you going again. Try to earn 10 VPPs after getting it and we'll award you another.

If you lose this next buy-in please just post the hand where you lost the money.
