Hi classic06109! I'll take a look at the hand in post #5.

You have KJo in late position and there's a lot of action in front of you. Three players limp, and they are likely to have weak hands, but the next player goes all in for 2000, which is a stack of 200bb. That is a HUGE overbet, and it would usually mean the player has a very big hand. Since he didn't make a standard raise for value, I would expect him to have a something like JJ or AK and he's shoving because those hands can be tricky to play on the flop, so shoving removes all post-flop play. With KJ, you should be snap-folding. What hands are you beating? There aren't any! You're losing to all pocket pairs, and are crushed by AK/AJ. With a 100bb stack, there's no need to get involved here. You should generally only get a 100bb stack in the middle with QQ+/AK.
As played, you call the shove, and villain flips over 22, so it's a race. You'll win this about 50% of the time, so the result wil come down to pure luck, like flipping a coin. Going all in pre-flop takes the skill out of poker. If you want to be a long-term winner, then you should avoid taking random flips, and focus on getting your chips in when you're much more likely to have the best hand. You won the flip this time, but calling off 100bb with KJ will not be profitable in the long run. Practice some discipline and patience, as recommended in the PSO courses, so that you can reduce the effect of luck.

Feel free to continue with the PSO courses and take the quizzes when you're sure you understand everything you've read.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty

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 classic06109! Congrats on passing the quiz! I'll analyse the hands in post #13 and #14.

#13: You have QQ in middle position, faced with a limp. You should be raising for value here, because QQ is the third best starting hand. You decided to just call the 2c blind, and this is a terrible idea, because it could mean that several other players enter the pot, making it much more likely that you'll lose. With strong hands, you should open for a raise, and the standard size is 3bb + 1bb per limper. 8c would be the perfect size in this spot. As played, you limp and there's a caller, but then villain 2 makes a big raise. You could just call here, but I see that both you and the villain are short-stacked. I would re-raise and plan to get it all in pre-flop against this player, because short-stacks tend to go all in with worse hands than QQ.
You decided to raise to 26c, and the villain calls. This is weird, because half of his stack in the middle, so he's pot-committed. You're in the same situation. With over half your stack in the middle, you only have one play on the flop and that's to go all in, whether you have a good flop or a bad one. You actually made a set, which is great. You put villain all in, and amazingly he has JT, so he's obviously calling with two pairs, even though he's virtually drawing dead.
You dragged the pot with a monster hand, but your play was far from standard. Pre-flop with big hands, open for a raise. Don't limp or limp-reraise like you did. It just leads to weird situations.

#14: A6o is a trash hand. It doesn't make money. The best thing you can do with this hand is to fold it pre-flop. Limping in is a weak play that doesn't give you an immediate chance to win the pot. As played, you limp and see a 3-handed flop of J65, so you made middle pair, top kicker. The big blind bets half pot, and I think you can call this bet, with a plan to fold on the turn if you don't improve and villain keeps betting. As played, you turn trips. Villain bets 10c into 16c and I like your raise. Since you're committing to this hand, you want to get all in. Villain obliges by re-raising. While he'll sometimes be ahead with a full house with pocket 5s or 65, he might also be going crazy with just a jack. All the money goes in and villain shows JT for one pair. You got it in as a big favourite with trips. Unfortunately, villain got really lucky and hit a 2-outer to make jacks full of 6s, while you made 6s full of jacks. Suckouts like this will happen often in poker, so you just have to accept them. But one way you can limit your big losses is by not playing junk hands in the first place. A6o doesn't make monster hands very often, and is losing to all the bigger aces, so it's far better to just fold pre-flop.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty
