Table was so loose so I thought 4x raise is good. We are 6-handed with high pair and best kicker. probly I had best hand but flop is little bit dangerous so I have to bet around 2/3,3/4 but also I shouldn't bet too much cuz let him in the game to gain more value. I decide nearly 1/2. Turn was not connected so I checked and try to represent my flop bet like continuation bet and after you chased me I cannot lose more money so I checked however they checked also and river was A. I thought still I've got best hand but didn't want them fold so I decide nearly 1/2 bet is good enough. But after I saw MUKAZ777's hand I thought I could take much money from him how should I play for this?

Thanks.

Also I passed all 3 steps.

Hi zlordzex26! Let's take a look at this hand.

AKs is a monster hand, so raising for value in early position is great. A 4bb open is fine, but I'd stick with the standard 3bb when you get on the real money tables, as you won't often pick up so many callers. Here, it's 6-handed on the flop and you made top pair, top kicker (TPTK) on a fairly wet AJ2 board. You can definitely get called by worse, and the various draws will give your hand value. I'd bet closer to the size of the pot on the flop. If you make it too small, then once one player has called, several with have great pot odds to also call with draws. When you have a made hand, try and get the most value you can, by betting the biggest size that you think can still get called. As played, two players come with you to the turn. The 7 is a total blank. Here I would bet again, because this card hasn't changed anything. Worse hands/draws that called on the flop will call again on the turn. Get value from the draws now, because they won't call your river bet if they miss. By checking, you let the villains take free cards, so if they suck out for free , it's your own fault for letting them! The river gives you trips, and you pretty much always have the best hand, based on the previous action, unless villains have slowplayed a monster. A half pot value-bet is fine. Villain's hands aren't shown, but I presume they looked you up with worse aces, or random one pair hands. The bet-check-bet line is a good way to get called by very weak hands, because it looks quite bluffy, as if you made a c-bet with air, gave up on the turn, and then had one last stab on the river, but I think it's generally better to go for three streets of value against passive players.

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 there I was out of town so it goes with little bit delay. nevermind. here is the hand



opponent was loose and I though that had two over cards and I decide to bet after check. I dunno the rest of hand after this move cuz I hold myself to this belief so much and I crashed. What was the best move in there?

Thank you.

Also I passed the exam and here is the answers of big blind question.

1-Pretend a big hand and open the way to semi-bluff.
2-Make odds bad for our opponent in heavy draw boards meanwhile gain more value.
3-pressure to passive players.

Thank you again.

Hi zlordzex26

Tough spot! Knowing how to best play this hand is going to be extremely read dependant. You said the villain was loose, but how aggressive was he? Did he 3-bet often preflop? Did he raise often postlfop with anything other than the nuts?

Preflop opening with a standard 3bb raise is perfect. Calling the 3-bet is fine with QQ since we have position on the villain. What range of hands can we put him on? At 2NL I usually give 3-bets credit for being strong hands. The flop is pretty dry and it gets checked to you. I would make 50% pot bet here. We want the villain to call with all the hands we are beating such as AK, 88,99, 1010 and JJ. The villain makes a large raise. This looks very strong. Not many players will take such an aggressive line at 2NL with AK in a spot like this.

If we put him on a pocket pair, then we need to ask ourselves, what pairs would he have 3-bet preflop and raised the flop with? Probably not 66, 77 or 67s. That leaves us with 88,99,1010, JJ, QQ, KK and AA. Unless the guy is super aggressive, I would discount 88, 99 and 1010. Plus, QQ is less likely since we have two of them. That leaves JJ, KK and AA.

As played, a J comes on the turn and the villain moves all in. His line looks super strong. If we look at our range of hands, KK and AA have been beating us from the start and JJ just made a set. Without actually having seen the villain overplay much worse hands with such an aggressive line, this looks like a good spot to fold on the turn. We need to ask ourself, "What hands that we are beating are taking such an aggressive line on every street?" Learning to get away for overpairs like this takes time. Don't stress this one too much.

GL and have fun at the tables!
