Hi Ms.Soulz!

I'm not 100% sure if you posted the hands you intended since you folded both preflop. Nonetheless, let's take a look at them starting with the second hand.

A2o: This is an easy fold. Good job Remember Ax is a drawing hand. At the moment you have nothing but an A high. A2 is fine to steal with from late position, but not good to call with. The only good flop for you would be a straight draw. If you flop an A, you may very well lose a big pot to someone with a better kicker. Having A2s would give you flush possibilities, but that too is a folder facing such a large preflop raise. In general, if you are facing a raise that puts you all in, you normally should only call with KK or AA. Anything else (including QQ and AK) is better off folding and waiting for a better spot.

First hand JJ: This hand is strange because of the large original raise and a caller. Here you have a strong made hand with JJ. There are several ways to play this hand. Folding is fine and safe. However, there is a good chance there will be a string of caller since this is play money. You are getting bad odds to call hoping to flop a set. Therefore, folding as you did is fine. However, you are getting great implied odds to call (the amount you can expect to win on future streets). If you flop a set, you will very likely stack one and perhaps several players in this hand. I think this is how I would have played the hand. Note, if you were last to act and only facing one villain making a big raise, I would fold, here though you have already one caller and can expect more. This improves your implied odds considerably.

If this were real money, I may consider 3-betting all in in hopes of isolating the original raiser. However, we have very little fold equity on play money tables. So, moving all in will more likely result in a string of callers still. We won't win often enough to make this line profitable here.

GL and have fun at the tables!

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 Ms. Soulz,

Limping is generally a not so profitable play. I would have folded preflop or raised K9o from the BTN to steal the blinds.

As played, you are clearly repping 9x to your opponent yet our opponent shoves on us which I'd never think is anything weaker than trip 9s. We lose to A9,J9,55 and win against Q9,T9,98,79. There is 2.64$ in the pot and we have to call 2.08$ to win 4.72$.
Which means we need to be good more than 2.08/4.72 = 44% to make the call profitable. Against their 9x hands and 55 we have 57% equity which justifies the call. So yes we should call I think.
