Hi Khorgor!

first off, we're not even sure you're eligible or not yet. Secondly, please do NOT do anything ahead of time. It will only make this take much longer, as you're going to have to redo everything.

Ok, So now i got all things running i am playing around with the replay tool a bit.
I think that particular hand was pretty easy to play and selfexplanatory. Play at the table was ... well ... loose agressive and thats quite an understatement. low limit playmoney and everyone is a maniac i guess. In the previous hand villain4 took out 3 players with a multiway all in - best hand was AJo
So, i am in the big blind, hand is limped around to me so i can just check with my 62o. bottom pair without kicker, so well ... nothing to exciting. sb checks to me so i dont give him any credit, dont see a Q or J in his hand, so i bet 2/3 of the pot. at least i had hit the board and i want answers and no free card. UTG calls, sb folds, as expected. UTG doesnt have a Q or J either, else he would have raised with my small bet. At least thats what i would expect - he played pretty straight forward so far without trying to trap at all.
Turn is a 9, board is full rainbow, so no flush at all. still i have bottom pair but i guess UTG gives me at least the J or even the Q, so i bet out again, not to scared of the 9. Bet is 8 in a pot of 14. UTG calls.
River is an A. Now, thats tricky. ALl the time i was representing Q or J. So the A is scary to me. I still prefer to be the better and bet 14 in a pot of 30. If he raises i do have to give him the ace, i think.
He folds, so i win the pot.
What did he think i have? AQ? AJ? i am sure he believed i had Q or J. So in that case, the A must have been a good spot to bluff - did i scare him with the bet? He should have raised me, right? And what should i have done then? Believe him and throw away? Or pay him and hope he doesnt have an ace?
I think i would have paid, i dont think he had an ace. He would have played it more straightforward before the flop. Most likely he had 10x, hoping for the straight that didnt hit. That would explain him paying of till the river and throwing it away when missing it.

Hi,


Hand Analysis

We bet for 3 reasons,

1.) As a bluff

2.) For value

3.) To collect dead money

Which of the three would you say was done in the hand replay?

I think your line is fine at a short handed table, it could potentially set up a bluffy table image at minimal cost and eventually when you do have the goods the villains will be more inclined to hero call. I'm not looking to get called on the river so I'd make my sizing big 3/4 pot+, we have really thin show down value and the villain is sitting deep enough to make a hero call. From the villain point of view they have put us on a flopped two pair


Keep in mind although bluffing is an important attribute for a well rounded poker player to have, it's something that will not be particularly effective at the 0.01/0.02c full ring NLHE games. I'd focus on playing medium strength to strong hands in position (value hands) when the times comes for real money play.




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,

Good evening, i watched all the videos available for me and passed the basic test already. I think i am done with all so far.

Oh and as a reply to your analysis:
i only played that hand because i was able to see the flop for free.
When hitting a pair on the flop with the first acting player checking to me, i do bet, just to get an answer from them both so i see where i stand. if anyone raises me, i fold and run for the woods. The way the hand worked out i actually never felt like i was bluffing. I did feel like being ahead after the flop.

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!


Kind regards,
CannonLee

Ok, lets start with a hand for the fun of it. I was pretty scared after the flop ...

Ok, so i wake up with A6o in the SB. One limper before me - so i do have to give him some credit.
Maybe an Ace with a weak kicker? Kxs? Something like that. Suited connectors would be possible too. I just fill up to see a cheap flop, BB checks.

Flop is AK6 rainbow. Two pair. Nice. Sort of. Actually i am not long enough at the table to know how the early limper would play a strong hand. He could have had AK ... i dont know if he would raise that or not. So two pair is nice, but far from safe. He bets .02 i raise to .06. So far so fine. Now his big reraise to .80. And i start to get scared. Really? AK? Or do i stick with my first feeling, giving him a weak ace which means i am in front? So after some thinking i call the .80 I am pretty sure i am commited now. Still it takes me nearly the complete time to call his all in on the turn. I still believe he would have raised A10 or better preflop, so the 10 on the turn changes nothing. I still think i am in front. So after tanking i do call. putting all my hard earned 2$ on the line on not much more then a gut feeling.
So - he shows K6o, my two pair is in front.
All i have to do is dodge the K on the river to have an early double up. And well - it worked.

Yes, i was pretty scared but only on the flop. I really though he MUST have AK, but then - i was right.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

This hand really doesn't flop to well most of the time and there is always the possibility of being out kicked. In this situation it's fine to limp it in the hope of hitting two pairs or three of kind but keep in mind that if we had this hand and we are the first to open the action whether it be early or middle position this hand should be folded (not all the time, it entirely depends on the table dynamic)

Post flop, I like your line..check raising gains info and value from weaker holdings..I think the combos of AK are not present in this hand given the villains pre-flop action..generally AK will be opened for a raise from early position..plus we have an A blocker!

When the villain 4bet re-raises to 80c it appears they do not want to get called and they could easily be over valuing a range of A2+..in certain situations KK AA 66 could have been limped as a trap but based on the villains re-raise sizing I'd feel fairly confident to play for stacks as a stronger hand wouldn't want to generate to much fold equity. Very nice pot!


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

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.
