Hi fribro!

There are several important points to learn from in this hand. Firstly, is just not strong enough to open with from early position. I recommend having AJs+ when opening from utg. Secondly, any time you are the first enter a pot (it folds around to you) always open with a raise, regardless of your cards! Limping in will just cause you trouble and decrease your chances of winning the pot. One of the major dangers is that it creates a string of limpers as happened here.

You have 5 opponents on the flop and you have middle pair. Checking would be best, but if you are going to bet, I recommend sticking to standard bet sizes. Here 50% of the pot would be standard. Betting small as you did will not get many players to fold. Thus you bloat the pot with a unsure hand.

Finally, middle pair is not strong enough to expect to get value from betting every street. You want to be very careful about overplaying single pair hands. This applies to big pairs such as AA and KK as well. Here, betting the flop is ok, but once you get called you should slow down and try to check your way to the river. You have some showdown value, but not enough to bet every street.

I hope this helps and GL with your bankroll builder

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!

Answe for the question
:List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

To protect against strong draws
To bluff people off decent hands
To put a lot of pressure on opponents

Hi fribro! I'll analyse the hand in post #10.

You wrote "I call 4bet pre flop with K8s" but there was no 4-bet. A 4-bet occurs when the price of playing is raised 3 times. The initial price to play is 1bb, so if there is a raise (of any size) it would be a 2-bet. Another raise would be a 3-bet, and a re-re-raise would be a 4-bet. Here the action is a just a limp in front of you, and calling here is just about OK. I'd sometimes make a raise to isolate the limper, as K8s is likely to be the best hand, and I don't want other players to have great pot odds to also play. After you limp, the small blind completes, and the BB raises it up to 4bb. The first limper calls the raise, and I think I'd just fold now. You wanted to see a cheap flop, but now it's going to cost you 8c in total, and your hand is never ahead of the raiser's hand. As played, you call, so you see a 3-handed flop of AT5. You completely missed this board, as you have no pair or draw. The pre-flop raiser (PFR) makes a continuation bet, and the limper shoves all in with a small raise. You have an easy fold here, as the action indicates that someone has at least top pair. The hands villains show are somewhat surprising. The limper raised with king high, and was called by QQ, which I suppose called because the limper could be bluffing sometimes. Your fold was good, as you see you were losing to both villains. That should help you realise that K8s is never very good in a raised pot, so you'd be better off folding pre-flop.

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

Hello,

'Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus'+

Remember it's 10 VPPs earned AFTER you got your last buy-in, not 10 VPPs total (any VPPS earned before you got your last buy-in do not count)

If you have earned 10 VPPs AFTER you got your 2nd bonus then your 3rd bonus should be credited to you automatically within 24 hours.

Let me know when you get it and I'll advise on the next step.
