Hi hershypower!

With 44 in the big blind facing a raise and a call, I think calling is fine. This is a good spot to go set-mining, because if you hit a set of trips, you stand a good chance of doubling up when there are two players in the pot.
You call and the flop comes 764. This is a great flop for you. While you only have bottom set and it's possible that someone flopped a straight, I would expect the pre-flop raiser to have two overcards like AK, or preferably a big pair. The latter is preferred, because it will be easier to win a stack from pocket aces, for example, as that would be hard to fold on this flop. I don't like your bet-sizing, however. You decided to lead out with a donkbet, which is kind of OK, as you'd like to get action, but I'd usually check to the raiser so that he can put some money in the pot first. You might get both villains to put money in, and then you can come over the top with a big check-raise. The problem with donking out with a bet of double the pot is that if villain has a hand like AK, he will just fold, because it will be clear that he's losing. You don't want villain to fold. To get value, you need him to think he has the best hand, and you can do that by checking. Here, you're lucky. The villain with 99 raises your donkbet, which opens up the betting again. Now you can go all in for value, and he'll have to call off the rest of his stack when he's drawing to 2 outs.

Hope this helps!
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

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!
