Hi nachochsnate!

With A5s on the button, I get 4 limpers in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise here to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 4 limpers, I will raise to 7BB or 140 chips.

I flop a nut flush draw and now I need to see if it's worth it to call. I need to call 100 chips into a pot that will be 640 (15.6%). With 9 outs, from the rule of 4 and 2, I have 2% equity per out to the turn, so my 9 outs are worth 18%. Since my hand equity is higher than my pot equity, I will call the bet of 100.

By shoving, I have to put 870 chips into a pot that will be 2180 if someone calls (39.9%). By seeing both cards, my hand will now be worth 4% per out. Due to this, my hand is worth 9*4% or 36%. Because the pot equity is more than my hand is worth... I do not want to make this play, as I expect to LOSE chips by shoving here.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

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!

Hi,

Three reasons why someone might bet big
1 put pressure on opponents
2 to add value to the pot
3 to bluff people out of decent hands

I have complete the three tasks that you asked me to complete. Looking forward to hearing from you guys,

Thanks,

Nate

Hi nachochsnate! I'll take a look at this hand.

First of all, it looks like you posted your big blind out of turn. Don't do this. Since you'll be dealt an unplayable hand more than 80% of the time, you'll be throwing away 2c four times out of five. This money will add up over time and drain your bankroll. When you first join a table, click the "Wait until big blind before posting" option.

You're in the cutoff facing a limp. Since this player is often weak, making an isolation raise to 4bb with your KQ makes sense. Most of the time, this will mean no one else enters the pot and you'll be heads up in position in a +EV situation. Unfortunately, there's a cold call by the player on the button. He usually has a pocket pair, but some suited connectors are also in his range. The original limper folds, so you're heads up on the flop, but the villain has position on you, which will make things tricky.
The flop comes a two-tone QT9. This is the sort of flop that can get lots of action, since it has multiple draws. With top pair, you can definitely get some value. You want to make a big bet here, so that it would be a mistake for villain to call with a draw.
You only bet 4c into 21c. This is a very weak bet. If you're ahead, you're not getting much value for your hand. What's worse is that you're giving villain a bargain price if he has a draw with something like JT or any two clubs. Your bet is also so small that villain might be tempted to make a big raise as a bluff, because your bet indicates you are weak. On wet boards like this you should bet BIG with your top pair, good kicker. Even if you're behind, you have outs to trips or a straight.
Villain seizes on your weakness and makes a raise to 22c. He's representing that he has a good hand, but it's not a huge bet. You only need to call 18c into a pot that will be 65c. While it's possible villain flopped a straight or a set, I don't think I can fold for this price.
If you'd made a bigger bet on the flop, it's much easier to get away from your hand, because villain wouldn't raise as a bluff if you make it clear you have a real hand.
It's not a huge mistake to fold here, as playing future streets will be difficult out of position, and you are probably better off not risking your whole bankroll playing guessing games, but there are so many hands that villain could raise here that you're actually beating that I think you're being a little too cautious.

You noted the 3 main reasons for making a big bet in post #14. With this hand, reason number 2 definitely applies. In future, be sure to make bigger bets with your strong hands to get value. Always bet at least half pot on the flop and turn, to make it a mistake for worse hands and draws to call.

Hope this helps!
Cheers,
Arty
