Hi,

Hand Analysis

Did you have any specific reads, when the villain shoves all in? I wouldn't expect to be ahead of many possible combo's of Ax that are in their range A9+ AT AJ AQ AK, let's also factor in pocket pairs, 77+ 88 99 TT JJ QQ KK AA. I'd pick a different spot to call of 10+bb. Post flop, I'd just check it down on all streets, Villains 6 decided to play their hand from early position, which may be an indicator of strength.


Hand Analysis

A general rule of thumb, when it comes to bet sizing, 2/3 to 3/4 pot size is ideal. This will help build the stack to pot ratio and ensure that we get enough value with our made hand, anything less than this amount will correctly price in mediocre to marginal holdings. One of the main components about playing poker is having reads of the villains tendencies and show down ranges, it's hard to assign other Ax combos that could be in their range..but it's more than plausible, presently A3 and AK have us beat..all we can really do is get the chips in middle as this is a really strong holding.
Unfortunate out come.



Hope this helps.


Good luck and good decisions,
CannonLee

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Did you have any specific reads on this villain? Generally a limping range is perceived as a weak range.
We are sitting on a 14bb stack depth, I'd generally be looking to play pots with strong holdings all in pre-flop. On that board texture we are going to get floated by spade draws coupled with some high card showdown value, I'd prefer just checking all 3 streets..as bets saved are bets earned and each chip may represent a possible ladder climb in the prize pool and or points for the leader board if this was a skill league game. As played on the river, our pair of fours has been cancelled, now high card plays above 4, 8 9 T J Q K A etc..

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply

I dont understand why the 4 was cancelled out?? As played on the river? I thought any pair would beat a high card.

Have taken test but only 65% result. Will re-read tutorials and try again soon.

Hi,

Hi,

The best 5 card hand wins, that would also mean that the community cards + 1 or both of the hole cards.

So if the board is AAKK4 and we hold 74, the best 5 card hand that we can make is AAKK7 (two pairs Aces and Kings, seven kicker) the pair of fours is cancelled, that means any villain with a card higher than 7, AAKK8 AAKK9 AAKKT AAKKQ etc.. will have us beat.

Please >>click here<< for an overview of the Poker Hand Rankings.


Hope this helps.


Good luck on the quiz, let me know when you have passed it and your first bonus will be awarded!


Kind regards,

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 Canon,

With this hand I had caught the villian bluffing big time a couple of times earlier. villian was playing a lot of pots and was aggressive and loose. Should I have put more pressure on villian earlier on to force a fold on the turn? Or would I have been better to fold myself on the turn in anticipation of villians Flush draw?

Your input is most appreciated. Thanks for your time.


I have also completed steps 1 - 3 of the 2nd installment in the Bank Roll Builder promotion.

*Three Reasons to Make a Big Bet

1. To put a lot of pressure on opponents.
2. To bluff people off decent hands.
3. To protect against strong draws


* I have passed the NLHE quiz: result 91%

-post cash game hand
-name 3 reasons to make a big bet
-pass NLHE cash game quiz

Look forward to your response.

Hey Canon,

With this hand I obviously had an excellent starting hand but would I have been better to go all in pre-flop or even post-flop before the turn to protect my holding?

Thanks for your time

Hi,


Hand Analysis


This hand will play very well even out of position versus a loose villain or in this case (loose aggressive. It's very playable and will flop decent a top pair or some equity to a straight of flush draw. I do not mind leading this flop to try and get value from a worse range of Kx or second pair and quite possible some flush draw combos. Checking to induce a worse range of Kx to bet so we can raise for value is certainly an option, but given that we have top pair it reduces the likelihood of the villain to have a range Kx so I'd expect either of the two villains to check back this flop.

On this flop our hand versus and one other random hand we would have in the range of about 50% equity. As for the turn there is no way I'd check fold this turn in anticipation of the flush draw as the doesn't really improve either of the villain range unless they have 92 Q2 K2 or 22 which it a very unlikely holding taking into account the pre-flop action.

Here is how our hand matches up on the turn versus the villain in MP (middle position)

76% chance of winning

24% chance of winning

This means any money we invest at this point, we can expect to win 76% of it back, which is clearly a +EV (plus expected value) play. The villain is nearly a 4 to 1 under dog, if I could get in this situation every hand I play..I'd get it all in with the villain every time! Our reads on this villain is that they are loose, they could easily be going all in with worse Kx Qx or a flush draw..


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi,

Hand Analysis

We have a 40bb stack depth and to call this villains all in we are getting about 1 to 1 pot odds and will be in a rough coin flip situation versus a wide range of holdings (or in this case 45% vs. 55%) and quite possibly semi-dominated by a better range of Ax or pocket pairs (60/40 or 70/30), so that would mean any money we invest, we could expect to win half of it back or even less depending on the villains actual holdings. Plus, we are not closing the action to isolate that villain..just cold calling invites the two other limpers from early position which could put us into a difficult situation post flop and reduce our overall hand strength/equity in the pot as this hand just doesn't flop to well with the big gap between the ace and 8. We are rarely going to flop equity to a straight draw, we'll feel gun shy to bet this hand for value with such low kicker card and we'll only flop a flush draw 17% of the time. This hand is a mediocre holding and we are sitting deep enough to just fold pre-flop.


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
