Watch the following video and pay special attention to the tips on retrieving and saving your hand history from PokerStars. This will be important for the rest of your promotional journey.


After wacthing this please play some PLAY MONEY FULL-RING (9-Handed) tables at PokerStars and using the Hand Replayer post a hand here in this thread that you have questions about.
Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.


Then when you have that done please have a go at the Poker Basics Course and pass the quiz at the end of the course.
So you have 3 steps to do to begin with and when you have all 3 done we will award you with your first bonus.

Hi tahitixt!

The first thing that I see with this hand, and tip that I will give you, is that whenever sitting at a ring table, to always wait for the BB before playing. Paying extra blinds over and over will be a very large hit to a player's bankroll.

With AKs and 2 limps before me (yes, the post counts as a limp), I will make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 2 limpers, I will raise to 5BB or 10 chips.

After 3 more limps, an opp shoves for 80BB, which is way too much for an informed player to be betting. Whether to call this or not will depend solely on my read of the opponent. If the opp is known to play very loose, then I'll call. If the opp is playing very tight, then I'll muck. With this being my first hand at the table (know this from the post), instead of playing bingo against an unknown player, I'm going to muck... it's not worth the risk vs an unknown opp.

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 tahitixt! I wanted to take a look at the hand in post #13, but the hand replayer isn't displaying it properly. There is no flop being shown. Can you repost the hand by re-entering the hand history details into the Replayer?

Cheers,
Arty

Hi tahitixt! Thanks for fixing the post.

With JT in late-middle position, I'd sometimes enter the pot, but mostly just fold, because this hand isn't hugely profitable. To see the type of hands I'd play in this position, see my blog. If I did decide to enter the pot, I'd do so with a raise. Open-limping (calling the blind) is a weak play, because it gives opponents a very cheap price to see if they can hit the flop. The big blind can even check his option and see a flop for free, and you don't want that, because you'll miss the flop about 70% of the time, and jack high won't be enough to win. You should make a standard raise to 3bb (6c), which will mean:
* You often win the blinds (which adds 3c to your stack without you even showing your hand).
* It's more likely you'll get heads up (it's easier to beat one opponent than several).
* You can make a good fold if someone re-raises, because they can only 3-bet with a super-strong hand like QQ+/AK.
* You can follow up your pre-flop raise with a continuation bet on the flop, which is likely to take it down even if you missed.

As played, you limp in and the big blind checks his option. He can literally have any two cards, although it's unlikely he has a strong hand, since he didn't raise. The flop comes AT2, which is a pretty good flop for you, as you made middle pair. Betting here is OK, and I'd do it with just about any cards. Your pair of 10s is probably the best hand right now, but villain might have a king or queen, and you don't want him being able to have a free chance to hit it. If villain doesn't have an ace, he'll fold pretty often to your bet here, and that's not a terrible result. Since you only have a weak made hand, you just want to win a small pot. Other than your pre-flop limp, I think you played this fine.

To get more tuition on cash game basics, I recommend going to live training sessions for the Wednesday and Saturday Games if you can. You'll even be able to play alongside other PSO members in the Homegame club and get instant feedback on the way you play your hands. Good luck!

Cheers,
Arty
