After wacthing this please play some PLAY MONEY FULL-RING (9-Handed) tables at PokerStars and using the Hand Replayer post a hand here in this thread that you have questions about.

Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.

Did I make the right move playing a min bet on the flop or should I have been more aggressive? When the Q came on the turn I wasn't worried about the spades because the opposition didn't signal anything on the flop. It was a snap call from me when there was a raise and a bad read because I thought my K/K was ahead of a possible paired Q.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Did you have any specific reads on that villain? Usually a limping range is a weak range, but that is not always the case. The main question we need to ask our self, what range of Qx is calling our flop bet that has us beat? AQ KQ. What range of flush combos could they be limping? Most likely their entire middling range of flush combos 98s 97s 96s T9s T8s JTs J9s J8s etc... What range of Kx has us out kicked? AK KQ KJ KT K9 K8. There are several hands that the villain could have. I would have just checked the flop and maybe call a bet or fold to any bets made and pick a better spot, saving bets on this stack depth to help ensure we have a good effective stack to play is essential in trying ladder climb the prize pay out or waiting for a solid hand.

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.

Best of Luck!

Hi, I've tried uploading few hands to the hand replayer but they aren't loading for some reason

Here is one hand I'd like to analyse: Only 3 players at the table so I was easy to call a pre-flop raise with Ad/Qd. And then I called the bet on the flop because the other guy had been playing quite aggressively for the last few hands. Better stopped on the turn and river - should I have tried to bluff at that point instead of checking?

PokerStars Hand #102075957130: Hold'em No Limit ($0.01/$0.02 USD) - 2013/07/30 20:34:22 NZT [2013/07/30 4:34:22 ET]

I don't know what's wrong with my hand replayer. When I load all the data, it gives me an error "wrong gamer name in hand history" for every time any player's name appears in the transcript. And then the hand doesn't load properly And when I copied your post, that's the replay that came up

Hi Nick1912,

In the future, please try to stick to Full Ring tables that actually have 9 players. This will make it easier for you to stick to solid poker and work on the fundamentals. Playing short as in this hand forces everyone to play a much wider range of hands which in turn makes it necessary to rely more on reads than on the value of our hand.

Here with you have a great starting hand, but you are out of position and facing a deep stacked oppoenent. You said he was playing aggressively, but was he showing down many losing hands and did he fold to raises? A read would help here. No matter, your hand is very strong for a three handed table. You are ahead of most of the villain's range. I would suggest 3-betting to about 24 cents preflop here. This will often win you the pot by forcing the villain to fold. However, since the villain has position on you, getting a fold would be fine.

As played, I don't mind the call on the flop if the villain usually c-bets. I would not recommend bluffing on either the turn or the river. If the villain is bluffing, then he will most likely fold to your bet. Therefore you will not win more money from him. Also, if he is bluffing, then your hand will likely be good on the river since you have an A with the best kicker not connecting with the board. Other the other hand, if he is not bluffing, he probably won't fold to a normal bet if he has a pair. Thus, betting will only cost you money. Take the free cards and hope to improve your hand.

Don't be afraid to be aggressive preflop with your premium starting hands in the future. Remember to stick to tables that are actually full too. You can adjust the filter to only show tables with 8 players. That way when you sit down, the table will be filled up. That's what I do

GL and have fun at the tabes!

Reasons why you might want to make a big bet:

1) To put pressure on an opponent to make a big decision
2) To bluff an opponent off a made hand
3) To gain value and build a pot when you have made a monster hand
4) To protect your hand against strong draws
