Hi k1d0r93!

With AKs from UTG, I'm going to make a standard opening raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, with 1 limper, I will raise to 200.

I flop an OESD and when it checks to me, I have two options, either to check or make a c-bet. If I bet, which I will do the majority of the time, with 3 opps, I need to size my bet at 3/4 pot (675 chips). I do not want to bet more or less than this, as it's a tell on the strength of my hand. By making all of my bets standard, the opps will be continually guessing as to the strength of my hand. Players that bet less with marginal hands and more with made hands are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent. The other thing that I need to consider here is that 675 is well over 1/3 of my remaining chips, which makes me pot-committed. Since I'm pot committed, I will SHOVE the flop.

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.

Hi k1d0r93! Let's take a look at this hand.

With QJo in early position, you should be folding 100% of the time. This hand doesn't have a positive expectation in this position, as it's never going to be the best hand pre-flop, and you're likely to be out of position if you see a flop. With any hand I'm going to play first into the pot, I'll make a standard raise. Limping in (just calling the big blind) is a weak play that doesn't give you an immediate way to win the pot. Limping in and then calling a raise is very bad. Folding at the first opportunity would be much better. Villain is telling you, with his raise, that he has a decent hand. He has position on you, and this will make it very hard for you to make money even if you hit the flop hard, because if you bet, villain can fold. There's more advice on pre-flop hand selection on my blog.
As played, you call and the flop comes Q97, which seems good for your hand. The best play here is to check to the pre-flop aggressor, and then call a bet, as he's likely to make a continuation bet whether he hit this flop, or missed with a hand like AK. You chose to lead into the raiser. This is called a "donkbet" and it's generally not a good idea, because it means you get "value-owned". If you have the best hand, villain will fold, so you get no value. He'll usually only continue with hands that beat you! Since he raised pre-flop, he can have hands like AQ, QQ, 99, 77, or even pocket kings or aces. Your hand is in terrible shape against that range. Villain just calls, and this should worry you. He can definitely be trapping with a monster hand.
The turn comes a jack. Again, this looks like a great card, because now you have top two pairs. You're now ahead of hands like AQ and KK+. Here you decide to jam in the rest of your stack, with a bet of larger than the pot. While it's possible villain will feel committed to calling with one pair hands that you beat, he might be able to fold them, because your overbet reps such a strong hand. You're getting value-owned again: Villain is only calling with hands (specifically sets) that beat you.
On the surface, this hand looks like a cooler, but to be honest you made a few mistakes. You shouldn't have been seeing the flop in the first place, and when you got there, you should be trying to keep the pot small with one pair, by checking and calling, not by donking and overbetting. Try and be more careful in future. With marginal hands like QJ, you should avoid getting involved in a pot if you're likely to be out of position. Be more disciplined and only play strong starting hands.

Hope this helps!
Cheers,
Arty
