Hi orenkanon!

Preflop with so many limpers, I think you will be better off checking behind and seeing the flop for free. 1010 is a good hand and you may be ahead right now. But, it doesn't play well post flop because so many overcards can come. At play money and 2NL, people just don't fold enough preflop and here you have a bunch of limpers to get through. Raising as you did bloats the pot, but does not improve your chances of winning.

As played, you get a good flop with low cards. Leading out after nobody shows any strength looks great. Your betsize was good too and it got a lot of folds. Well done

The turn is another low card. I think you can fairly confidently lead out on the turn. If you were ahead on the flop, nothing has really changed so you should still be ahead. Betting may be better than giving the villain a free card. If you bet and get raised, you should fold though.

As played, the villain checked the turn and the river is another low card. I think you can make a small bet here, about a third of the pot. Checking as you did is safe. That is always a preferred line if you are unsure. However, the villain has been so passive, it seems unlikely that he is slowplaying an 8. Second pair hands or perhaps Ax hands will often call a small river bet.

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!

i've passed the cash game course

3 reasons for betting

getting money in the pot.
-to apply pressure.
-to protect strong hands against possible stronger draws

and the hand



after he calls my bet on the flop i put him on a pocket pair, not jacks queens or kings since those would raise so i figured he has 77,88 may 66 and very rarely 55 so i went ahead and value betted
my 99, i feel my sizing was to big and that 55 and 66 would fold and that leaves me with 77 88 and 10 10 sould i have betted smaller to avoid the risk of running in to 10s but still get value from the smaller pairs and maybe keep 55s and 66s in the pot?

Hi orenkanon,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

I think you played this hand well. I would stick to open raising to 3x instead of the minimum. Maybe OTR we can take a check/call line that way we can pick up a bluff from Ax hands that think we are on a busted draw or if they have Kx, Qx with a busted draw themselves that would fold to a river bet. Other than that it's okay we lost there.
