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.

Hi Luxian777!

The first tip that I would give to you is that when you sit down at a ring table, always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over will be a large drain to a player's bankroll.

With a really bad hand like 59o, I'd like to immediately muck, but since the blind is posted, I'll check and hope to see the flop without putting any more chips in. If anyone raises even only 2 chips, I'm mucking because I've got a really bad hand.
I then get an opp that makes an abnormally huge raise. When it gets to me, I'm mucking here every time. There is no way my hand is ahead and I want to be putting my chips into the pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind.

By playing bad cards, while I may win a small % of the time, doing so will cost me a very large number of chips over time.

With JJ, it depends..... whether I call or raise preflop will depend on the prior action, my position and how the opps are playing. If I see two overcards on the flop and I don't hit a J, I'm mucking.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Excellent!

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!
