classic value-bet after I made my hand. Comments?






I open preflop with 7x big blind, really standard. Flop top pair so I go higher to protect my hand against flush draws. Cant predict any ranges on the villains since one basically goes all in. I figure I have him beat since the odds of him having a 9 pair and calling aren't too high. Comments?

Hi Jurrrrrrr!

First hand K6, Nice job not betting the flop. You have middle pair, but your hand isn't really strong enough to be leading out with, especially with the A showing. Betting once you make two pair on the turn is perfect. I would probably have bet a bit larger, somewhere between 70% and 100% of the pot. We want to ensure that anyone chasing a flush is getting bad odds. Plus, with so many people in the hand, there is a better chance that someone will call a larger bet.

On the river, the third spade comes. This card will either help the opponent or scare them. I would recommend better a bit smaller here between a third of the pot and half pot. The smaller bet doesn't cost you too much in case the villain just got a flush and comes over the top. If he does, you should fold without a very good read. The smaller bet also allows one pair hands to call. Betting large here may get you value owned. This means all the hands you are beating fold which wins you less than you could have. Whereas only the hands beating you continue which loses you more. Im glad this one worked out for you.

Nice hand

Second hand AKo, your preflop raise is a bit big. The standard at 2NL is 3bb plus 1bb for each limper. Since people tend not to fold on playmoney tables, goiing somewhat bigger at is probably ok. Once you get to real money, be careful about this. Stick to the standard.

On the flop you have top pair, top kicker and a possible nut flush draw. I would bet a bit larger, about 70%-80% of the pot. This earns you value from all the players who don't like to fold at playmoney. It also protects your hand from anyone chasing.

This turn pairs the board and the first villain leads out with a larger than pot sized bet. I do not recommend calling this without a read. However, very often a large bet like this is a bluff. It looks like he wants you to fold. If he were holding a 9, he probably would have bet less hoping you would call. Again, be careful about making calls like this at real money. Don't do it unless you have seen the villain make a similar move with weak hands. The risk just isnt worth the reward when you only have a top pair hand.

Nice call on this one.

GL and have fun 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!

First off, as a general rule, anytime you are the first to enter the pot, do so with a raise - no matter what you are holding! Limping in is pretty much never a good idea. Raising gives you the extra chance of winning by getting everyone to fold. It also conceals the strenth of your hand. If you always raise the same amount, nobody will know if you are holding AA or 72o. Limping your marginal hands and raising your strong hands is very exploitable by your opponents.

In this hand you have QJs. This is not strong enough to open with from early position. I recommend folding preflop. From utg, I would open with AQs+ and 1010+. Moreover, QJs is a speculative hand. It won't win often, but it has the potential to win a big pot. In order for playing these hands to be profitable, we need to have a deep stack. Most of the times we will miss the flop and have to fold. In order to make this profitable, we need to win a large pot the few times we do flop well. You are too short stacked to achieve this in this hand.

If you happen to get short stacked, we need to limit the range of hands we can open with. We should wait for a premium hand that we can confidently get all in with.

GL and have fun at the tables!
