Hi chaakkri!

With T8s on the button, I get a limp, then a huge, abnormally large raise and two calls of it. A standard raise for this opp would have been to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With a marginal-at-best hand, I need to fold to this action in front of me as it's nowhere near strong enough to call this large of a raise. I only want to be calling raises with premium hands and not with something marginal. Patience is a big key in poker and folding marginal hands and waiting for better hands is a huge part of it.

If I saw the flop here (which I never would), when I see that I hit trips, I need to make a standard value bet when it's checked to me. With 2 opps left in the hand with chips, a standard value bet is 2/3 pot, so I will bet 1439. I do not want to check and give someone a free card to try to outdraw me.

On the turn, when an opp makes an abnormally small bet (lower than 2/3 pot), I'm going to raise here. A standard raise is to between 3X their bet and a pot-sized raise and since this is well over 1/3 of my remaining chips, I am going to shove here. I do not want to bet less than this, as I could be giving the opp the correct odds to call and try to outdraw me.. and if I do so and they do outdraw me, it's my own fault that I lose the hand.

The key here is to muck marginal hands preflop to a raise.

Hope this helps and good luck 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 chaakkri,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

Personally, I don't like limping into pots. I think with the type of our hand and the position we are in we could make a raise to 0.08$ to isolate the limper in position. That's not precisely the best flop for us since it's a paired board and we might not have clean outs since some diamond cards might give our opponent a full house. But then again we get a good price on our draw. With that said, I think it is a bit too ambitious to raise OTT with our T flush given the action before us.

Hi chaakkri!

We need to be careful about playing hands like 108s. Your cards are not that big and they are gappers rather than true suited connectors. A hand like this just won't win often enough to make playing it profitable. Normally I would suggest folding them preflop, but limping behind as you did isn't a huge mistake. The bb chooses to make a raise. This is a clear indication that he has a decent hand. I would definately fold now. It looks like a good spot to call since you are last to act and getting good odds, but not many flops will help you.

On the flop you get a flush draw. Note two points though. Firstly, are not drawing to the nut flush. Secondly, the board is paired meaning that even if we make a flush, we might lose to a full house. In other words, we need to be careful not to lose our stack with the second best hand. Calling the 2c bet is fine. Calling the raise is probably ok too. It looks like the btn has a big Ax hand. That fits with his pf action. A flush might be able to stack him and you are getting decent odds.

Now when the passive V4 leads out on the turn, he is representing a flush or full house. I would recommend folding here. If you were holding the for the nut flush, then we might want to continue. Yet, we still might be facing a full house. Yes, you have a flush here which is a strong hand, but the board and action from two players indicate that at least one of them has us beat.

If you had a good read on V4 and want to raise the turn. You should be raising more. Your min-raise gives good odds for everyone to continue and a chance to out draw you. Sets may improve to full houses or quads and a fourth diamond might put one diamond hands ahead of you.

Be careful not to over value non-nut hands, especially when facing so much action from two opponents

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi chaakkri!

99 is a decent starting hand. Raising to isolate the limper is fine. However, I would probably have just called preflop. There are so many overcards that make playing middle pairs tough post flop.

As played, the flop might be good for you, but the board is paired AND there is an overcard. You want to be careful about overplaying single pairs, especially not top pair. With the action you get from the villain. There arent many hands he can have that you are beating except for bluffs. Folding to the flop raise would have been the best choice.

Rembember, be careful about overvaluing singel pair hands

GL and have fun at the tables!
