triple 5 on the flop with my Q as the kicker, i was worried about other with a pocket pair in hand to make up a FH. Let it check once and there might be other started to bluff when nobody bet. I folded cause didnt want to take chance. How should I react on this scenario?

Hi,

Hand Analysis
even though we have posted straddle and we are sitting deep enough to afford a call while being in position..this hand is going to flop a lot of bottom pairs with the 3 and there is the possibilty of us being out kicked with the Q, we will not feel comfortable betting this hand for value..so I prefer to fold this hand preflop when the villain in the big blind 3bets. It'll save us a lot of chips in the long run!

Post flop I like your line, on this board texture we really do not have high card value and only have 6 outs (QQQ 333) which is minimal equity and it's very plausible that Kx Ax is out there! Good fold!



So you have 3 steps to do to begin with and when you have all 3 done we will award you with your first bonus.

1) Watch the 'Getting Started' video
2) Post a 'PLAY MONEY' hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer [x] COMPLETE
3) Pass the Poker Basic course.



Let us know as soon as you have all 3 steps completed.

Best of Luck!




Kind regards,

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 Cannon,

Here's my answer of 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet:
1) To put a lot of preassure on opponents
2) To bluff people off decent hand
3) To gain value from strong hands

Can I play the 1/2 cent Real Money table on ohama instead of texas holdem?

Flush draw from the flop, I suppose to raise but there are bluffer around me and i didnt have a pair, so I decide to check. Dime flush on the last flop but there were also a possibility of FH or better flush. Should I use check in this scenario? What if when we check and bluffer will raise to max, any advise pls?

Btw, I have passed the cash game quiz too.

Hi,


I like your line post flop especially on the turn as it looks convincing..here is why. Being in a limp pot pre-flop there are certainly a lot of 3x that can be in your BB option range that will be checking the flop and not betting for value or protection with so many players involved in the hand...so I like semi-bluffing that turn card for minimal cost On the river I all we can really do is shrug call this unless our reads on the villain beg to differ (tight dynamic for the villain) but it's good that you had reads..there could be worse flush combos that we have beat on this river or a wide range of Jx floats AJ QJ KJ JT J9. Well played.. just an unfortunate spot that the villain ended up with jacks full.


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.[x] COMPLETE

Hi Cannon,

Thanks for opinion. It seems I may want to continue checking instead of raise

I have done answering the question as above. That was the first thing I have done before playing the $0.01/0.02 full ring table.

Thanks for answer from royalraise. My total VPP for the past few months is 21.90. Hmmm... Do I accomplish your last instruction of another VPPs +10 or I have to make it VPPs +10 in the next following month?

Hey there,

Let's keep it simple We gave you a third bonus of $2. Play with that $2 and try to earn 10 additional VPPs with it. Once you hit this target you'll be automatically credited with your final bonus.
