Hi sunil786!

With AA (or any other hand that I'm going to play) from UTG+1, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, I will raise to 60.

The flop is three diamonds and luckily I'm holding the A of diamonds. When it checks to me, I will make my standard value bet for 4 opps in the pot, which is a pot-sized bet of 328. My post-flop bets are sized based on the pot size, number of opps and board texture. However, this creates a problem, as betting 328 is well over 1/3 of my remaining chips, which means that I'm pot committed. Due to this, I need to shove the flop, as the bet will make it so that I cannot ever fold. I also do not want to bet less than this, as I could be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me... something that I want to avoid if at all possible.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

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 sunil786! I'll take a look at this hand for you.

At first glance, the line you took (betting/raising at the right time) looks fine, but the bet-sizes are much too small. I'm wondering if you sat at a fixed limit table instead of a no limit one. Nevertheless, I'll run you through all the decisions and tell you how much I would bet.

You have JJ in EP facing a limp. Since villain is likely to have a worse hand than yours, but also because you don't want multiple players to enter the pot, I would make an isolation raise to 8c, which is the standard 3bb plus 1bb for the limper. As played, you min-raised to 4c, which isn't effective at narrowing the field. There is a cold-call and the limper also calls. The flop comes QJ3. This is a monster flop for you. Sets are big hands, so you want to try and build a big pot. With the pot at 16c, I would bet close to pot with a bet of about 14c, to get as much value as possible for my hand. I want to make worse hands and draws pay to see if they can draw out. Min-betting 2c is a bad play, because draws are getting a bargain price to call. A hand like T9 is always calling here, and it could hit an 8 or a king to make a straight. Both villains called, so you see the turn, which is an 8. This completes a straight for T9, but that's just one possible hand. I would make another big bet, and only consider giving up my hand if there's a big raise. Another reason to make a big bet is that the board is getting wetter. There is now a flush draw to go with the various straight draws. Here you bet 4c into 21c, which again is far too small. On the flop and turn, I'm always betting between half pot and full pot to get value and to make it a mistake for villains to call. If this was a fixed limit game, then 4c is the maximum you can bet on the turn, but in no limit you can obviously bet more. Once again, both villains call, and they can do this with a wide range of hands, because they have a good price.
The river comes a king. In some ways this is a bad card. The backdoor flush got there, and hands like AT made a straight. I'm no longer fully confident that a set of jacks is the best hand, but I'd still make a strong value-bet, with the plan being to fold if there is a big raise, indicating you're beat. You can get a lot of value from hands like KQ that made two pairs, or KT that had an open-ended straight draw that made top pair. Once again, your bet of 4c is way too small. With the pot at 33c, I'd be going for something like 24c, so I can make as much money as possible from my hand. here, both villains fold, so maybe the king on the river scared them off weaker pairs.

In future, assuming you're on a no limit holdem table, try and stick with standard lines. Make raises of 3bb + 1bb per limper pre-flop, and bet at least half pot when you have a strong hand. Betting too small is a common mistake made by beginners and it leads to them getting sucked out on very often. If a villain wants to try and suck out, make him pay a big price for trying!

Hope this helps!
Cheers,
Arty

Hi sunil786,

Hope you found the analysis valuable, now just let me have the answers to the three questions. And unfortunately your Cash Quiz pass isn't showing on our system here. It's possible, but unlikely, that it's a technical issue, so please take the quiz again and let me know when you have the pass.
