A 3-bet which will nearly always be a very strong hand, then a caller before the action gets to you. You just won't flop a set often enough to make calling here profitable. I would only call with KK and AA in this spot to be honest.

At play money and 2NL, there are so many clearly good spots to play, that I would recommend avoiding marginal spots like this. The risk is not worth the reward. With small pairs our plan should be to see the flop cheaply. We want to have 20:1 odds in order to get the proper implied odds.

Try to be patient and wait for good starting hands. In general you don't want to risk your whole stack until you have a strong made hand such as a set or better

GL and have fun at the tables!

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!

Hi Curbside101,

I think we can profitably check our option in the BB here and play heads up with the limper. We are out of position so I'd like to keep the pot as small as possible with a marginal holding. As played, I would raise it to 0.08$ instead of the min raise preflop and bet that flop as the board hits our raising range.
