Hi krishatul92! I'll analyse the hand in post #4.

I think you played this well. Pre-flop I wouldn't call the initial bet, because 65s is a weak hand and you'll be out of position to several players, but when there's a small raise and several callers, you have great pot odds to see if you can get lucky. Bear in mind that in a multiway pot, you'll typically have to make at least two pairs to win, and often it's a straight, flush or full house that will be best. As played, it's 8-handed on the flop and you made top 2 on 653. It's possible someone has a set of trips or a straight, but leading out for value makes sense. You'll be in a sick spot if you get raised, but you can deal with that if it happens. Your bet size is good. Not only does it get value from worse hands (overpairs and draws), it sets up an obvious all in shove on the turn if it's a safe card. The Q doesn't change much about the board. Not draws were completed, so with 1010 in the pot and 356 in front of you, shoving is standard. Villains' hands are't shown, but you clearly got called by worse. Nice hand!

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! umbup

Hi krishatul92!

Preflop and on the flop, you bet a bit larger than standard. I recommned, especially preflop, sticking to the standard 3x plus 1x for each limper. This builds the pot, but also allows for worse hands to call. Either way, 3-betting preflop was perfect with KK. Leading on the flop is fine, but I would suggest about 50% pot since the flop is unlikey to have helped anyone.

Now, once you 3-bet, you are committed to the hand with so little behind. However, very few people 4-bet light at 2NL. So, what range can we put the villain on? Sets are possible, although most players would (should) fold these pairs to the pf 3-bet. Overpairs are likely canditates giving us 1010, JJ, QQ, KK and AA. And some random two pair, bluffs A9 type of hands as well. Overpairs seem most likely. At 2NL enough players will overplay 1010,JJ an QQ in this spot to make getting all in as you did fine.

Don't stress the results here. You line looks fine.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi krishatul,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

I think we are making two mistakes preflop here: 1. Calling an open from the V3 is loose and we are not getting good implied odds given his stack size 2. Getting all in with J9s is certainly a bad play when we do not have fold equity.

We should have folded this hand preflop.
