>>> done



here my first hand.. guess that was really easy to play, but i ask myself if checking the river would give me more value in long term or do they check behind most of the time with naked 3 or low poket like 77, 88, 99?

what about the pre-flop bet sizing? i now would bet lil more for the squeez ...lets say round about 100- 110.
and do u like bet the turn with the intention of folding to a big raise? (in this case wouldn´t be really an option in relations to the pot... he only got about 400 left)...also i really cant tell u a hand he would call two streets on this board and snap fold the river. he played it like 5x or random two overs... imo




regards

Hi LASERCHABO!

The first thing that I see with this hand is that it is a 6-max table. This promotion is ONLY for FULL RING tables. Once you receive your first bonus, playing anything other than FULL RING cash tables at 2NL will make you INELIGIBLE for all future bonuses in this promotion.

With TT in the small blind, I get a limp, a min-raise and a call. I'm going to make a standard 3-bet here and the key is the sizing of it. I need to raise to between 3x the previous bet (60) and a pot-sized raise (90). With multiple opps in the hand, I will pick the high end of this range and raise to 90.

I see a 3-way flop that has a pair and multiple straight draws. I'm going to make a c-bet here. Bets post-flop need to be sized based on the pot size, number of opps in the hand and the board texture. With 2 opps in the hand, I need to bet 2/3 pot, so I will bet 183 chips. I don't want to bet less than this or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me.

I see the turn heads-up and the 6 completes two of the straights. I'm going to make another value bet and since there is now only one opp, I will size it at 1/2 pot (298).

The river gives me the nuts (unless the opp has 33, which I'm not worried about) and with the opp only having 445 left, I will bet 445.

I'm not going to check this river. The opp has shown no aggression and has not bet the entire hand, so if they are a calling station, if I check, they will check behind and I will get no value.
If the opp makes a large raise on the flop, I absolutely plan on folding to it. If they shove the turn, I need to put 445 chips into a pot that will be 2105 (21.1%), so to call, I need to be sure that they would not have trips, straight or full house this % of the time. That may or may not be the case, so I would need to use my read on the opp to decide whether to call or fold. Depending on that read, I could do either.

call, then snap fold the river... A4.

Good luck at the tables.

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!

Hi LASERCHABO! I'll take a look at the hand in post #8.

It's folded to you in the SB, where you have AJs. This is certainly strong enough to play. By raising to 3bb, you'll often force the BB to fold, so you pick up the blinds. Here, he re-raises. This puts you in a tough spot, because calling will mean you have to play out of position (acting first) on the flop. Calling 3-bets OOP is a leak, so you only have two good options: re-raise (4-bet) or fold. I'd actually go with the latter. At 2NL, villains aren't often 3-betting light (bluffing). I would expect villain to have something like TT+/AQ+ when he tries a resteal in BvB. AJs isn't beating anything in that range, so when you 4-bet, you're turning it into a bluff, hoping that hands like JJ/TT/AQ will fold. If villain 5-bet shoves, you can be sure you're crushed by QQ+/AK, but it would have cost you a lot of chips to buy that information. You got a good result here, because villain did, in fact, fold to your light 4-bet, but I'd generally recommend just folding to the 3-bet. There's no real need to get into pre-flop raising wars at these stakes unless you have KK+. I much prefer making big folds when facing a lot of resistance, and saving the big bets and raises for when you see the flop and have a better idea of where you stand.

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
