Hi Kaponi89! The bonus is released in stages. I'll analyse the hand in post #4 and then a moderator will let you know how to proceed.

First of all, it looks like you posted your big blind out of turn. Don't do this when you get on the real money tables. Since you'll be dealt an unplayable hand more than 80% of the time, you'll be throwing away 2c four times out of five. This money will add up over time and drain your bankroll. When you first join a table, click the "Wait until big blind before posting" option. There are several useful settings in the software for things like this, and I've listed them in my blog.

I have no idea why you checked with AKs UTG. This hand is strong enough to play, so it's strong enough to raise. When you just check/limp, then other players will be priced in to come into the pot, but a hand like AK benefits from being heads up, not multiway. There's a lot of action after your check. Three players limp, one makes a big raise, and another minraises. On a real money table, I would strongly consider folding here, as the action indicates you are beat, as someone probably has a big pair. On the play money tables where the play is crazy, villains could have worse hands than yours, so I would commit to stacking off. Just calling is not a good option, as that would mean three quarters of your stack will be in the middle and you haven't even seen the flop. That would mean the pot size will be much bigger than your stack, so you'd have to go all in on the flop even if you missed. You are what we call "pot-committed". If making a bet or call pre-flop will cost your a third of your stack, then you should go directly all in. This removes all further decisions, and doesn't put you in strange post-flop situations. As played, you call, another player goes all in and there are two calls. You call and this sets up the weird situation. There is now 2780 in the pot, and you have only 70 chips behind. If the flop came something like 963, you'd have just ace high, but you'd still have to go all in. And the problem with only having 70 chips left to bet is that no one will fold to that bet, because of the huge pot odds you'll be setting. Fortunately, you made TPTK and also have a gutshot to the nuts, so it's trivial to get your money in.
It turns out that you were losing pre-flop to KK, but you managed to outflop that hand and dragged a huge pot.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty

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!

1. Hand replayer from 0,01/0,02c



I got 5c 6d on small blind, everybody fold, I call to big blind and player on position big blind just chec, flop is 3s 3h 6h, I played first and I raised 4 big blinds, to 0,08c, another player fold..

2. List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

Players may want to make big bets:
1. To put a lot of pressure on opponents
2. To gain value from very strong hands
3. To protect against strong draws

3. I study cash game right now, I will pass quiz later...

Hi Kaponi89!

Two important points with this hand. As a general rule, any time you are the first to enter the pot preflop, do so with a raise. Don't open limp as in this hand. Raising gives you an extra chance to win since the villain may fold. Moreover, limping in looks really weak. If you limp in with weak hands, and only raise strong hands, you will be exploitable by other players. This is even more important in this particular hand. You are going to be out of position post flop which is not good. I recommend making a standard 3bb opening raise here. If you always raise the same, nobody will know if you have AA or a weaker hand like 56o

Postflop, you have top pair. Again, make a standard bet of half the pot or a bit more. Let's say 2c or 3c. Raising more than the pot will get you value owned. This means you create a situation where only the hands beating you, such as an overpair, continue with the hand. This in turn means you will lose more than need be. All the hands you are beating will fold. This in turn means you win less than you could have. We want to do the opposite in holdem. We want to lose small pots and win big ones.

Keep an eye on your betsizing this week.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Roland GTX

Hello,

'Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus'+

Remember it's 10 VPPs earned AFTER you got your last buy-in, not 10 VPPs total (any VPPS earned before you got your last buy-in do not count)

If you have earned 10 VPPs AFTER you got your 2nd bonus then your 3rd bonus should be credited to you automatically within 24 hours.

Let me know when you get it and I'll advise on the next step.
