Hello,

You will need to post the hand using the Hand Replayer (See video above).

Sorry for responding after such a long time, i had a few very busy days, Sorry for posting with boom, to be honest i was in a hurry About the hand, i might have overplayed it a bit, but in the end i got lucky. Question: What is best to do in case you miss flush, or how to play if you have a flush draw?

I've also passed the quiz

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 qckalex!

With 35s from UTG, I'm going to immediately muck this preflop. When playing from out of position, I only want to be playing stronger hands and not marginal ones. Just because I have an A or suited cards does not mean that they are always playable.
The other thing that I do is that when I'm the first one to enter a pot, I'm never calling. If the hand that I have is not worth making an open-raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper, then it's not strong enought to play.

With 3 raises after me preflop, 35s is definitely NOT the best hand, so if I didn't muck immediately, I absolutely need to muck here. I want to be getting my chips into the pot when I have the best hand, not when I know that others are ahead of me.

One key with this hand are the bet sizes. Preflop, I want my bet sizes based off of the BB until someone raises. Once a player raises, if I want to re-raise, then I need to make my bet between 3X their bet and a pot-sized raise.... and not less than this, as raising a smaller amount gives the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me.
Post flop, I want to make my bet sizes consistant too and here, they need to be based on the size of the pot and can be either 1/2, 2/3, 3/4 or a pot-sized bet.. based on the board texture and the number of opps.

By keeping my bet sizes the same, the opps are continually guessing as to the strength of my hand, as I will make the same bets with any hand that I'm playing.

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!
