Hi,
Hand Analysis


Post flop, the villain in the small blind leads out into all of the players left to act behind, this usually can be an indicator of strength as they are willing to play a pot of position being the aggressor, although one side note..their bet sizing is so small in relation to the current pot size (more of a balancing range act, I think they have air here, a weaker flush draw or some Ax combos.) We could elect to raise to try and isolate the villain in the small blind and thin the amount of players involved in the pot which will greatly improve our equity along with decision making on future streets as we'll have position on them. I like your raise sizing, it's not to big or two small, it prices in worse flush combos to call (if we had specific reads on the villains and it doesn't inflate the pot to much).


On the turn and river, when the player behind us called our raise on the flop..all we can do is check/call the turn and give up the river, it's a middling board texture which will hit a lot of players range super hard whether it be two pairs, top pair, sets etc.. well played.

PS. Would of been sweet to spike that flush!


Hope this helps.

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.


Good luck and good decisions,
CannonLee

Hi,

Hand Analysis

We are sitting at a short handed table or rather 6 Max, please ONLY play full ring 9-max 0.01/0.02 NLHE as your training is focused primarily on this game format. Playing anything other than 9-max NLHE may make you ineligible for future bonuses from the Bank Roll Builder training.

I'd fold this hand preflop as there is a strong possibility of our hand being out kicked by a range of better Qx.

Post flop, we are short handed and any range of Ax would have most likely raised pre-flop, but as stated above we have some kicker issues. We could elect to bet for thin value, there are some flush combos or wheel cards to get value from. On the turn, all we can do is call down, the villains line looks like they took a pot control approach on the flop with Qx and is now betting the turn for protection and value of diamond draw.

On the river, all we can do is call as Ax is still plausible and we will split the pot with Qx for Queens full of aces! This was a very interesting spot! Well played on all streets!


Hope this helps.

Hi,

No worries! You are doing great at the tables! Most of the theory/thought process you will learn here in your Bank Roll Builder training will transition very well over to 6Max when you have completed your training!

Let me know when you have completed the cash game quiz!


Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi,

Your third Bank Roll Builder bonus should be automatically credited to your cashier when you have accrued 10VPPs ONLY with the second bonus. Any VPPs that where earned prior to the second bonus do not count. Please let me know when you have received the third bonus.



Kind regards,
CannonLee

Brilliant,

Your Bankroll Builder progress is moving along nicely and you've got your 3rd bonus!

Step Three

Now we really want you to up your game! Your challenge is to earn 10 VPPs after getting this bonus.

Note that any VPPs that you have earned up to this point won't count, only those earned AFTER you get your 3rd buy-in.

When you hit your target of 10 VPPs we will award you with your final Bankroll Builder bonus. Let us know when you reach the target.

Also, if you make a deposit at this stage we will also award you with your final bonus.

Best of Luck at the tables and let us know as soon as you have earned the 10 VPPs or if you make a deposit.
