I have already completed the basic poker course and passed the test.



was my play correct by raising on the flop but folding on the turn, or was i just being an absolute donkey.

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.

Cheers.

Hi,
Hand Analysis

We are sitting on about 60bb and will be at a positional disadvantage versus the limper if they decide to call our raise. A limping range is perceived as a weak range, so I like the raise to isolate that villain for a heads up pot, although bear in mind that they could also be trapping. Did you have any specific reads about the villains post flop?


Post flop, this board texture could plausibly hit either of the two villains range, and versus a made hand Kx or Qx we have 7 outs to scoop the pot on either the turn or river...essentially 14% equity. That means any money we invest here at this point we are expecting to win 14% of it back.


The main question is what worse hands that are calling our flop bet.. will fold on the turn, maybe some back door flush combos or inside straight draws. The turn I'd just check to save bets and hope the villain in position checks behind so we can peel a free river card. We do not have enough fold equity to semi bluff or get a range of top pair to fold especially since the two villains are sitting with really deep stacks.



Hope this helps.


Good luck and good decisions,
CannonLee

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!

Was the action correct playing AQ offsuit on the the flop or could i easily have made trouble for myself by raising.

Hi,
Hand Analysis

We are sitting on a 90bb stack depth on the button with a strong value hand versus multiple limpers. I'd make my raise sizing 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper, we will have positional advantage post flop and the majority of limps are consider to be a weak range.

Post flop comes K43, I like the continuation bet on this flop, we have the as a potential blocker to some of the flush combos and it may be very unlikely any of the villains hold a range of Kx, there is certainly going to be more air or rather dead money in all of the villain range on this flop texture, general population tendencies when it comes to limping are weighted towards middling cards and a very disconnected range, unless of course we have specific reads on any of the villains. If we get called on the flop we will be able to re-evaluate our course of action on the turn and to make matters much sweeter in position.



Hope this helps.


Good luck and good decisions,
CannonLee

3 reasons why players may want to bet big:
1. protect their hands against strong draws
2. to bluff people off decent hands
3. to put a lot of pressure on opponents.

i have also completed the cash course and passed the test
