Hi Nayadnal!

AQo is a pretty strong starting hand. Against one or two limpers, I would raise preflop as you did. Our raise is meant to isolate one limper. Here however, everyone his limped in. It is very unlikely that people will fold. I would recommend calling preflop and reevaluating on the flop. Raising will most likely get a string of callers and bloat the pot. We will have a hard time post flop if we miss the flop.

The flop is great for you with a pair and nut-flush draw. Calling the flop bet is fine. On the turn you have the nuts. So, now your goal should be to get the maximum out ot of the hand. V5 raises to 500, but this is still a small bet size compared to the 10 000 in the pot. I think you should raise now to about 1200 with the intention of moving all in on the river. With such a large pot, anyone willing to call the 500 will most likely call your raise of 1200.

On the river, I would again have raised all in. Calling as you did is good if you expect V1 and V3 to call the bet but fold to your raise. Yet, the action thus far and the large pot makes it like like they will pay you off. So, go ahead and get all your chips in.

Nice pot

The important part with this hand is your preflop action.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi Nayadnal,

You played this hand nicely Raising your AA preflop is perfect. It gains you value for your strong hand and protects it. Big pairs play best against a single opponent. Your bet size looked great too.

You didn't flop a set, but we still need to c-bet this flop as you did. It is too wet to give away a free card. Moreover, the wet board increases the likelyhood that your c-bet will get called.

On the turn there is 15 000 in the pot and the villain only has 3000 behind. You have top pair and a nut flush draw. We can't fold here. So, putting the villain all in is your best line.

Well played and nice result

Roland GTX

Playing playmoney table @ the lowest buy-in amount:

It took me some time before I can play a decent hand and play it accordingly. Players almost / always will call your bet from any position. I almost thought it was counterstrike on a table.

With nice hands poker seems easy to play, lower hands.. ohmygoodness. need to read, practice, more.

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!
