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

First of all, it looks like you posted your big blind out of turn. Although this is just about OK on the play money games, don't do this when you get to the real money tables. Since you'll be dealt an unplayable hand more than 80% of the time, you'll be throwing away 2c four times out of five. This money will add up over time and drain your bankroll. When you first join a table, click the "Wait until big blind before posting" option. There are several useful settings in the software for things like this, and I've listed them in my blog.

As played, this hand develops into a family pot with all 8 players limping in. You can check your option with A5. This is a trash hand that doesn't make money in the long run, so I would definitely fold it if someone had raised. The flop comes AQJ. You made top pair, but your kicker is very weak. With so many players in the pot, I'd expect to see someone with two pairs or even the Broadway straight. There's also a ton of action in front of you. One villain makes a crazy overbet of 50 into 16, and the next raises it to 100. Your hand is almost certainly no good here, so folding is the right play.
As it turns out, the first bettor was going crazy with second pair, but he turned two pairs and got his money in, only to be counterfeited by the jacks on the board that meant AT which had top pair and a gutshot of the flop, ended up with the best two pair hand. You had the discipline to fold top pair, so well played.

Hope this helps!
Best of luck with the next stage of the promotion.

Cheers,
Arty

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!

a person would use a big bet to protect against stronger draws, to bluff people off better hands, put pressure on players

Hi mruzsa!

This hand is from a 6-max table, not from a FULL RING table. This promotion is ONLY for FULL RING. If you play any other type of table other than FULL RING from now until you finish this promotion, you will be INELIGIBLE for all future bonuses.

Hi mruzsa! As John pointed out, this is a 6-max table. I'll analyse the hand, but remember to play full ring games for the duration of this promotion.

KQs is strong enough to open 2 seats off the button. I would come in for the standard raise of 3bb. Minraising to 4c means you're more likely to get multiple callers, which will make it harder to win the hand, especially if the opponents have position on you. Here, you're fortunate that it's only the blinds that called, so you get to act last post-flop. The flop is a good one for you, top pair on Q43. I would be making a continuation bet very often on this board, whether I connected or not, but here you can bet for value. You went with half pot, but I would make it a little larger. If villains have flush draws or worse pairs, I want to get as much value as possible and deny them good odds to draw. Both villains call, and the turn is a bad card for you. The could have improved someone to two pairs, but worse is that it completed a flush draw. If both villains check, I would probably check behind, because you have a hand with value, but not many worse hands would call a bet here, as they will be worried about the flush. Something strange happens here though: The BB donks out for a minbet. It's hard to figure out what this means. It good be a "sucker bet" with a flush that wants you to raise, or it could be a "probe bet" with a flush draw trying to set a cheap price on the draw. I'd need good notes on villains to know the best play here. Against some, I'd raise for value/protection because it seems they have a draw. Against others, I'd just call, because I think they are trapping. I definitely want to get to showdown with top pair if possible, so calling like you did is fine. On the river, you make top two pairs, but the relative strength of your hand hasn't changed much. You're still losing to flushes. Villain again bets small, and since I'm not sure what he's playing at, I would just call. If you raised, you'd find out where you're at, but the information would be useless. Villain would re-raise with a flush and fold all the hands you beat. It's pointless paying extra to find out the same information you can get by simply calling and showing down.
It turns out villain minbet the turn when he picked up a flush draw, but he also called on the flop with just king high. I would take a note on this. Next time you see him make a minbet, he probably has a flush draw, so you can raise your made hands for value. You won a pretty nice pot by playing the turn and river passively in this one. Nice hand.

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
