hi,

this is a hand of mine on a 9 players table.

i could have posted a wining hand, but i decided to post this losing one with KK starting.

should have feared the Ace, yet i hoped for a pair on table or a K.



the quizz im taking again within 4 hours, i have failed it with 69 points out of 70.

Hi AAlina79

Before we even look at the hand, I noticed that you paid the bb out of turn when you sat down at the table. I strongly recommend checking the box "wait for bb"! Playing out of turn just costs money. use the waiting time to start building up your reads on your opponents. Now let's look at the hand.

This is a typical case of "fancy play syndrome" unfortunately. You are dealt the second best starting hand in holdem with KK. It is a great hand, but not invulnerable. It is not a guaranteed win. Big pairs like QQ,KK and AA play best against a single opponent. Your chances of winning decrease very fast with each additional player. Therefore, we want to raise for value (you win more) and to protect our hand.

Preflop I suggest sticking to the standard 3bb plus 1 bb for each limper making it 250 chips, rather than the 150 you raised. The second you get a huge string of callers then the min-raise, I suggest moving all in, or at least making a pot sized raise. There is plenty in the pot now. So winning preflop is not bad. Hopefully all but one player will fold. Getting fancy with all the min-raising preflop just costs you money. It bloats the pot without improving your chances of winning.

As played, you get an all black A high flop and five opponents. I strongly suggest check-folding! You missed several chances to value bet pre-flop. Now it is very important that you consider the flop. It is very unlikely that you have the best hand. check-folding is the best move unfortunately.

I hope this helps you understand the dangers of getting fancy by slowplaying big hands like KK and AA. Try to avoid making this mistake once you get to the real money tables

GL and have fun at the tables!

thanks a lot!

your feedback is fabulous. it got me an insight i never thought into. after all im a beginner .

the preflop bet advice is very appreciated, i will start using that ASAP. Also i will stop being "fancy" against the odds .

now, i have few more questions if possible, please see bellow:

1. should i go all in with category 2 cards?

2. the 3bb + 1bb per limper is a standard bet for category 1 and 2 or works only for the strongest 3-4 starting hands?

3. speaking of MTT... on other websites i often hit the bubble, i even hit 20th out of 3500++... it was more of a luck i guess. my problem is:

1. i play very okay at the start of MTT but i risk all in later on and almost always lose (last example is KQ suited all in vs AK unsuited). should i play more carefully pre-bubble and more aggresive into second bubble?

I tried to apply your MTT course teachings but it seems to hurt me playing so tight and selective at starting hands. many times i won lots of chips playing mid-ranked starting hands (such as 6 and above connectors or/and suited/paired).

Should i go ONLY with category 1&2 hands until 2nd bubble? should i loose a bit/risk a bit? In a 9 table MTT always the table is packed with both passive and aggresive players so in my view either tactic has the same potential.

PS: i think i will go ALL IN only with AA, i lost everytime with JJ and most of the times with KK/QQ.


thanks again

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!


Regarding your query about your husband and the same IP address, please send a private message to PSOAdmin with your question. >>click here<<


Kind regards,
