Hi erenjæger23!

Preflop you have a perfect spot for playing 55. There are multiple opponents limped in to the hand. You are last to act preflop. You get to see the flop cheaply. And, you have a great speculative hand. The best line is to check preflop and hope to flop a set. If you flop a set you rate to win a big pot. If you don't flop a set, you have an easy fold without having invested any chips in the hand. This is the best line for playing speculative hands such as small pairs, Axs and suited connectors. These hands don't win often. So, we want to see the flop cheaply and fold when we miss. However, they have the potential to flop monsters that can stack all the big starting hands.

As played, you decided to raise preflop. We always want to ask ourselves "What am I hoping to achieve by raising?"

Are you bluffing, hoping everyone will fold? You might get single player to fold, but rarely the whole table. In general people don't fold enough at the lower limits. This makes bluffing counter productive. It makes value betting quite profitable though.

Are you raising for value? 55 is not strong enough to raise for value. Even if you are ahead preflop, all the overcards that will come on the board make postflop play difficult. You won't be able to bet/raise with confidence unless you flop a set. You will flop a set about 1 time every 8 attempts.

Also, your raise was really big. A standard raise would be 3bb plus 1bb for each limper. That would make it 200, but you made it 300. Moreover, you only have 960 chips to begin with. Betting a third of your stack with a marginal hand will cost you your bankroll very fast. Try to be patient and be happy you are getting to see a flop for free. Don't invest your whole stack until you have a strong made hand such as a set or better.

Finally, I hope you made notes on the two callers. Knowing that someone will call a large pf raise with 82s or 44 can be very useful information in the future

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 erenjaeger23! I'll analyse the hand in post #14.

There's not much to see here as this hand was over pre-flop, and I think the main reason is that your raise was too big. With KK, you definitely want to raise for value and to thin the field, but a standard size is 3bb, which is 6c. Anything less invites multiple players into the pot, which is not great, and anything more will make worse hands fold. You want to get some action with your monster hand, and 3bb would be the right way to achieve it. I would use this standard size whether I have AA, 66 or KJs. You can disguise the strength of your hand by using the same size each time. By overbetting, you reveal you have a monster, so you won't get called by worse. Always look to get value when you can.

Hope this helps!

To get more tuition on cash game basics, I recommend going to live training sessions for the Wednesday and Saturday Games if you can. You'll even be able to play alongside other PSO members in the Homegame club and get instant feedback on the way you play your hands. Good luck!

Cheers,
Arty
