Hi Artillero,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

Although raising suited connectors from UTG in a short handed game could be profitable, I personally prefer to play them when the table is tight and when I have a 100bb stack. I would have folded this hand preflop.

On the flop, our TP is very vulnerable and we are multiway. I would have bet 50%-65% of the pot to get overcards out and charge draws; we would probably have to get it in on the turn considering stack sizes although I wouldn't be happy about it. The thing is our TP is very hard to protect and get value from and if we have aggressive players in the pot with us they might raise the flop with their draws and it would put us in a very difficult spot for the rest of our stack. I hope this makes sense...

GL 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 again Artillero!

I might consider a call with AJs here, but I think I would have folded with AJo.
I would call if the SB had folded.

I don't think betting the turn here is necessary. Are we betting for value or for a bluff?
We have Ace high that would be good at SD often considering the board and how the hand played out. I would x/c a bet from the BTN if the SB folds.
If I were to take a stab on the turn, I'd make it bigger to get folds from other Ax hands.

Hope this makes sense...

Hi Artillero!

Opening from early postion with AJs if fine, but at the lower end of my opening range. Your bet sizing was good. You get mini 3-bet from the villain to your left. Did you have any reads/notes on him? The small 3-bet is a bit polarizing. Either he has a monster and is hoping for action, or he has a questionable hand and doesn't dare put more in the pot. The fact that he is 3-betting from a relatively early position makes this look more like a big hand than a weak hand.

Before we decide how to act, there are a few more elements to notice.

Position - the villain is going to have position on you all hand. Normally, we should fold most hands rather than call a 3-bet oop. Had he made a standard sized 3bet, I would recommend even folding QQ here. The small 3-bet gives us decent calling odds though.

Stack size - If you call, there will be 14bb in the pot and you will both have only 33bb behind. Without a read, we have to assume you are behind a large portion of his 3b range. However your hand can flop well. An A on the flop will beat JJ, QQ and KK hands and you have flush and straight possibilities. In other words, calling turns your hand into a speculative hand. It has the potential to flop a monster, but will more times than not miss.

If you were both deep stacked, then I would gladly call the min-raise here preflop and play the hand as a speculative hand. Yet, with the short stacks we don't get the necessary implied odds to continue with the hand. Bad odds and bad position mean folding preflop to the 3b would have been your best choice.

As played, you flopped top pair top kicker. When your bet gets raised again, we need to give the villain credit for a strong hand. Now a read would really help. If the villain rarely 3bets/raises, we can easily fold. If he is loose aggressive, then he might be raising with drawing hands like KQ. Since we don't have a read, we need to look at his line. He 3b preflop and now raised the flop. This looks super strong so we need to fold our top pair.

OK, now we see that the villain indeed had KK. If you go through the hand again from the start. We see that his actions represented exactly what he was holding. Knowing that he mini-3bet KK preflop and raised on flop with overpair is a good note to have on the villain for the future.

This was a bit detailed but, to sum things up, we should avoid calling preflop 3-bets oop.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi Artillero,
I'm not an expert in HU play but we have KK and its hard for us to play this hand too wrong
Unlucky outcome indeed! You got your money in good with 75% equity yet luck was not in our favor and they won their 25% this time. These things will happen and its important you don't get too bothered about them and just embrace variance as part of the game
