Hi Shadow21122! I'll take a look at the hand in post #4.

You have 73s, which is one of the weakest possible hands. The only time I'd play this is if I'm in the big blind and can see a flop for free. Here you're in a BB and there are a lot of limpers, but the SB raises, so I would just fold. It's not a good idea to play raised pots out of position with weak hands.
As played, you call the raise, and so do all the other players, since they have great pot odds to do so. The flop comes A73, which is about the best flop you can hope for, as you made two pairs, but bottom two pairs is a vulnerable hand that is often counterfeited.
Since the pre-flop raiser checks, I think betting is appropriate, in order to get value when you have the best hand and to deny draws a good price to try and suck out. You decided to lead out with an all in shove of 980 into 160. I don't like this play. A more standard size is between half pot and full pot, because you want to get called by worse hands, because that's how you get value. Since it's a multiway pot, meaning you're more likely to get action, I'd bet the pot, which is 160. The problem with overbetting is that you'll often only get action from better hands than yours. If someone has a better two pairs or a set of trips, they are snap-calling this shove and winning your whole stack. Good top pairs (AK, AQ) are probably calling too, and they have a good chance to beat you. Your shove is called by 2 players, so it's not looking good, but somehow your hand survives all the way to showdown, as one player made a very strange call with just 9-high on the flop, and another had AQ that didn't improve.

You got a good result here, but don't let that blind you to the advice. 73 is not a good hand and it does not make money in the long run, so you shouldn't call raises with it. When you see a flop, use standard lines as these will maximise your profits and minimise your losses. Don't put all your chips in the middle until you're sure you have the best hand. In this multiway pot, there was no way of knowing, because you acted early. In future, just make a normal bet of up to the size of the pot, so you see if you get raised, which would mean you are behind.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty

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!
