Please use the Hand Replayer only to post hands for reveiw

Also, it must be a FULL RING hand, NOT a tournament hand.

Hand Analysis

Sitting on this stack depth of about 40bb it's safe to call our option pre-flop and try to flop the world (straight) but this is more of a fit or fold hand post flop, on the turn when the villains over bets the pot there are several combos of | | | | | that have a 7 which could be free rolling us on the flush draw. I would have folded this spot. Nice pot!


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,

Quintuple Bracelet Winner

3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet are:

1)to put alot of pressure on the oppenents
2)to bluff people off of decent hands
3)to gain value from very strong hands

I also have passed the cash game quiz

Hand Analysis

Being the first to open the action is with this type of hand with a 100bb stack depth is completely fine, it's not often that 4x the big blind is used as a sizing, but it's certainly okay.

Post flop
We can elect to continuation bet 3/4 to full pot for value if we are ranging the villain with a possible flush combo or worse Kx, but we should factor in the possibility of that range folding their hand as the continuation bet was slightly bigger than the total pot size...which is not our objective with a strong value hand.

The turn
I would follow up with a 1/2 pot bet instead of a check as our range would look really strong (KK) but that is a really narrow range, (4x UTG, over bet cbet, turn cbet) also to maybe get value from a backdoor flush combo. If i get raised on the turn it's clearly a bet>fold situation, unless our reads on the villain tells us otherwise.

The river
Glad to see that you took a pot control line on the turn as now the pot isn't to inflated. All we can really do here is check call depending on the villains sizing. Unfortunate spot.
