I have watched both videos and passed basics quiz. Here is my hand.

Is it correct line? I thought I could make a small bet on river.

Hi lasttime23! I'll analyse the hand in post #4.

AQ is strong enough to open UTG on this table, because you're 5-handed. On a full 9-max table it would be more marginal. Coming in for a raise is good and you have 2 callers. The flop of Q86 gives you TPTK, so betting for value is the right idea. I like the size you chose, as you can get value from worse pairs and draws. The turn brings a king and I think it's best to check here. This card either improves your opponents, or it scares them. Since you want to keep worse hands in the pot, so you can get some more value, checking with a plan to bet the river makes sense. The river 7 connects with the 8 and 6 on the flop, but a straight is unlikely, because that would mean a villain called on the flop with a gutshot like T9. A two pair hand like 87 might also have just got there. There's some scope for a value bet here. Since the turn was checked around, villains probably don't have a king, so your Q should be good fairly often. I would probably go with the bet-fold play, meaning I make a smallish bet for value, but fold if I get raised. When you take the bet-check-bet line, you can get looked up by weak hands, because it can look like you made a standard continuation bet with air, gave up on the turn, and then then made one last stab at the pot on the river. Another line you can take is to check the river, hoping that the player on the button will try a bluff. If he has a hand with no showdown value, he'll have to bet to try and win the pot, so if you check and he bets, you can catch his bluff by calling. If you led out then he might just fold, so checking to induce a bluff is a good way of squeaking out a bit more value from worse hands.
As played, you checked and the button checked behind. You had the best hand at showdown so dragged the pot. I think the villain with TT might have called a small river bet, so you may have missed some value, but it's not a huge mistake.

Hope this helps!

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!

Hi lasttime23! I'll take a look at the hand in post #9.

Pre-flop, you have AQs, faced with a limper. I like your isolation raise, and I'm very surprised that so many players call. The flop comes a monotone Q83, so you made TPTK and can definitely get called by worse hands and draws. In a multiway pot it's more likely that you'll get action, so making a large value-bet is appropriate. There's a small possibility that one of the players flopped a flush, but more likely are flush draws with the bare or . I think I might go as big as 32c into 44c, because that will mean that if you get called, you'll have about a pot-sized bet left in your stack. With a large pot and a relatively small stack remaining, I think it would be fine to commit to getting all the chips in on safe turn cards. As played, you have a tricky stack size on the turn, as it's too big to go all in with (it's larger than the pot), but any bet commits you. As played, you bet 66c into 91c and villain minraises. This would make my stomach churn, because it seems likely that villain has a flush, or he flopped a set and wanted to see a safe turn card before getting his money in. I think you have to get it in, because the pot lays a great price, and there's always the possibility you're ahead. Villain could have KQ with the for example.
So you get all in and find out the bad news. Villain shows a baby flush. To be honest, he should never have been seeing the flop with that hand, as you'd made a large pre-flop raise that weak hands couldn't profitably call. You'll make lots of money from players like that in the long run, because hands like 52s so rarely make a monster. This was one of the occasions where villain got very lucky. Most of the time, he'd be calling 10c pre-flop and then folding on the flop.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty

Hi. I have got my third 2 dollar income, I think. And lost it all. Then I found out that I have 3.30 mtt ticket from passing mtt quiz. So I used it and got I think 4 dollars from 3.30 15min tourney. Then I played some .50 45man turbos. They appeared to be super easy for me. I played like 10 of them and only in one I busted out. After 10 games of these mtt sngs I had 10 dollar and decided to go play nl2. I ran super hot. I have 22.85 in my bankroll now. This is a big hand where I flopped a monster.

Villain was a total fish. My bet sizing was bad too.
