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.

The poker basics test has 15 questions. I believe you may have taken the pre assessment quiz.

Cheers.

Hi HelloTity!

With pocket 10's, I have 3 limpers in front of me. I want to raise, but I need to make this a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 3 limpers, I'll raise to 6BB ro 300... BUT... this is over 1/3 of my stack, which means that if I play the hand, I'm pot-committed. Therefore, I have 2 plays here, either to shove or fold. With a made hand and a small amount of chips, I'll shove.

The key here is that I want to always make standard bets. Players that make abnormally small or abnormally large bets give a tell to their hand strength (weak with the lower bets, strong with the higher bets). By making standard bets with all of the hands that I play, I continually keep the opps guessing as to the strength of my hand.

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!

Hi HelloTity! Let's take a look at this hand.

You have J7s in the cutoff and there are two limps in early position. I think J7s is too weak to play here. It's a fairly mediocre suited semi-connector that rarely makes the nuts. If you were on the button, you could just call the 2c, as you'd be guaranteed to be in the best position post-flop and could use that advantage to win the pot, but in this seat I prefer folding and waiting for a better hand.
If you had a stronger hand, like two suited broadways, or a big ace, then making an isolation raise would be the right play, and a standard size would be 3bb + 1bb per limper, making it 10c in this situation. You went with a minraise to 4c, which is neither here nor there. It's not enough to give villains a reason to fold, so they are going to call with all their random junk and you won't know where you're at.
As played, you make it 4c and - as expected - both limpers and the big blind also call, because they have a great price to do so. In this multiway pot, you'd typically have to make a big hand (top two pairs or better) in order to beat all three players.
The flop comes a K53 monotone, all clubs. This is a scary flop for anyone with no clubs in their hand. Since you were the last raiser, a continuation bet would be standard, but with 3 villains in the pot, I think you'd almost certainly get called, so with your jack high and no draw it's best to just give up and check behind.
The turn comes a very blank 4h. This is unlikely to have improved anyone's hand unless they have 44, A2 or 76. When it's checked to for the second street, it might be an idea to bet as a bluff. This is what we call an "orphan pot". There's 17c in the pot, but no one's trying to win it. A half pot bet has a pretty good chance of scooping it up. As played, you check behind and see the river.
The 10s doesn't change much. Someone might have made a pair, but since everyone checked for a third time, it seems that everyone missed completely. It would seem that they must all have hands like AQ, QJ, 98 etc. Since you have jack high, you can't win at showdown. Anyone with just a random 3 or ace high will beat you. I definitely like having a stab at this orphan pot. 10c is a good size. When bluffing, you want to bet the minimum that achieves its purpose. You don't want to bet less than half pot, because you'll get looked up by ace high, and you don't want to bet much bigger, because that will mean you lose even more on the rare occasiona you get called. As played, no one calls and you somehow drag a 4-way pot with jack high. Nice one!

You got a good result here, but this hand was quite extraordinary. Multiway pots usually require big hands to win, but you stole this one with relative junk. In future, be less inclined to speculate with hands like J7s. A connected hand like JTs is significantly better. Playing in late position is great, but try not to bloat the pot with a raise unless you think villains are capable of folding. When you raise, use the standard sizing of 3bb + 1bb per limper.

Hope this helps!
Cheers,
Arty
