Hi,
Hand Analysis

Generally when we are facing an all in or a standard raise sizing from UTG (under the gun) their range is going to be strong. AJs+ TT+. But given the way the villain played the hand by raising all in for 400 big blinds it's hard to actually assign this villain a range without any specific reads as their line is extremely unorthodox and it appears they do not want to get called..so maybe their hand might be indicative of a mediocre holding like A2 to A9 and low pocket pairs 22 to 77.

When facing two all ins ahead of us, i'd fold without any specific reads on the villains, there are just to many combos of better Ax they could have as well premiums (the villain in the cutoff).


Nice pot!


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!

Reasons to make a big bet:
1.To gain value from your hand
2.To bluff an opponent
3.To put pressure on an opponent


My betting was a little off but i fixed that now. I also passed the cash game quiz.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

We are sitting on about a 50bb stack depth with one limper from early position, I'd make my standard raise sizing of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper (8c to 10c) anything less than this will price mediocre to weak holdings to see a flop..we basically want to charge them a price to see a flop.

Post flop, I like your bet sizing, a good general rule of thumb for bet sizing is 2/3 to 3/4 pot size! Nice hand, we will see pocket aces about 1 out of 220 hands.

Hope this helps.

Good luck and good decisions,
CannonLee

Here is the hand where i lost my bankroll...

Do you have any advice to give me about playing with a small bankroll? It's really difficult to stay in the pot without a monster hand when people raise by a quarter of my bankroll.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

This is is good to play in late position on a larger stack depth of 100bb, but we are currently sitting with 20bb and will not be able to generate enough fold equity post flop. Generally when I decide that my hand is playable, I will enter the pot for a standard raise sizing of 3x the big blind, this will ensure that there are less players to enter the pot for a single option of 1 big blind and charge mediocre holings to see a flop. Did you have any specific reads on the villain in the big blind? Even though our hand looks really strong with the limp re-raise all in, what range of better hands that are opening for 5x the big blind and will be at positional disadvantage post flop are we ahead of? very few...It's easy for me to say this after the fact..but is more of an implied odds hand and not one that should be played for stacks pre-flop and in most cases should be a fold pre-flop.

A good short stack/small bank roll strategy for starting hand requirements is this:

Early position: AQ+ TT JJ QQ KK AA

Middle position: AJ+ TT JJ QQ KK AA

Late Position: ATs+ 77 88 99 TT JJ QQ KK AA

Blinds: ATs+ 77 88 99 TT JJ QQ KK AA


When deciding that the hand is playable from early, middle or late position, enter the pot for a 3x raise or if the action is opened ahead of us 3x the villains sizing with AQ+ TT JJ QQ KK AA. Blind play, we can 3bet AJs+ 99 TT JJ QQ KK AA.



Hope this helps.


Good luck and good decisions,
CannonLee
