First Step

Watch the following video and pay special attention to the tips on retrieving and saving your hand history from PokerStars. This will be important for the rest of your promotional journey.


After wacthing this please play some PLAY MONEY FULL-RING (9-Handed) tables at PokerStars and using the Hand Replayer post a hand here in this thread that you have questions about.

Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.


Then when you have that done please have a go at the Poker Basic Course and pass the quiz at the end of the course.

My thought about this game
I am in SB I am OOP when playing flop and KQo have too much reverse imply odds so I just call 2c
when flops come 7h Qh 6d I got top pair good kicker and there is too much draw here flush draw and staight draw so I put about 1/2 in to the pot get some value from the player who want have a draw I don't want give them free cards(when someone raise me I will revalue the hand) 3 player called me and the turn is Jc completely the blank cards they can not have JJ (May be have QJ) so I put about 2/3 into the pot to prevent them call me with a staight or flush draw there is noone raise me so QK is good here maybe I will lost but there ranges do not have KK AA QJ.maybe have 76 slow play.but so far I think I am good here.so the river is 2d.they miss all staight and flush.the pot is 105c.how much I gonna put into the pot as a value bet they gone pay me.maybe half pot is OK. Here is all my thought about playing this hand.
This kind of thought is Right or may have some leak? Could the pro tell me the leak that I can fix it.Thanks


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

Hi.Need your help~Thanks

Hi,

Hand Analysis


With so many players involved in the pot and being at a positional disadvantage post flop, I like the option of just calling or small blind to see a flop. Our hand has a lot of potential post flop.

Post flop, a limping range is usually perceived as a weak range, but bear in mind that sometimes that is not always the case as players like to trap with premium holdings. Our overall course of action should be weighed with the reads we have about the villains tendencies involved in the hand based on hands that where played previously. We have a fairly strong holding and there are many draws present (straight and flush draws) I like your bet sizing on the flop and turn as this is purely to get value from those combinations of holdings or maybe even a worse range of Qx or Tx...it also thins out the field increasing our overall equity in the hand and makes our decisions much easier!

Your bet sizing was perfect on all streets based on our 150bb stack depth, it also left us some room to maneuver without getting to pot committed! Well played and nice pot!


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

Preflop raising for value is perfect and your bet size was great. Following up with a half pot c-bet was also very good. You have 9 flush outs and maybe any K or A for top pair. The Q on the turn is actually a good card for you.

Firstly, it gives you a 3 more outs for a straight draw. Also, the villain's passive line looks like he probably has a pocket pair. With all the high cards on the board AND the fact that you raised preflop and on the flop. If you bet again on the turn, it will be very hard for the villain to call if he doesn't have a Q or set. Normally I would suggest slowing down and checking when we miss, but this is a great spot to bet about 70% of the pot. It will usually win the hand. You still have plenty of outs if you get called and you can fold if the villain raises you.

As played, you miss the river and the villain makes a significant bet. You only have high card. So folding would definately be best. Aslo note, if you are willing to call a large bet on the river with nothing but high card, it would be better to bet the turn. You have fold equity, and still have a chance of improving on the river at that point. In general, if you are willing to call a bet, it is better to make a bet yourself (because the villain may fold).

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hello,

It could take up to 24 hours before your VPPs show on the system. Are you sure that you have earned 10 VPPs AFTER you got your last bonus? Remember any VPPs you had earned before you got your last bonus do not count, only those earned AFTER.
