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.

Hi,
Hand Analysis

We have 100bb and this hand is not one to be playing for value or in a multiway pot, the majority of the time we will be faced with a difficult decisions post flop if we flop top pair..we will have kicker issues.
I'd fold this hand pre-flop.

Post flop, checking the flop is fine to try and peel one of the 4 clean outs that we have which is about 8% equity (any ten). On the turn and river, versus a plausible made hand on this board texture we have 8% equity, that would mean any chips that we invest..we can expect to win 8% of the pot back in the long run. I'd prefer checking the turn and river and pick a better spot to extract value with a made value hand.



Hope this helps.


Good luck and good decisions,
CannonLee

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 completed and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!
