Hi,m

Hand Analysis

We are sitting on such a short stack depth and to make matters that much tougher sitting in the small blind which means that we will be at a positional disadvantage post flop. With the huge gap between the K and the 3 this hand doesn't really have any play ability coupled with our stack depth, this hand will rarely flop strong enough to where we will feel comfortable betting it for value and or calling bets as we will be concerned of our low kicker card. Even though we are getting the right price to call our small blind I'd prefer just folding this hand and save the chips for our effective stack just shy of 10bb and wait for a hand to go all in pre flop.

Post flop, we have many options here, we could lead out for a bet as that will look like strength in a multi-way pot but it's hard for weaker hands to call our bet because the stack to pot ratio will be set up for us on the turn for a jam. Or we can just check for pot control on the flop and stab the turn for thin value. On the river I would have led out for about 2bb or 1/2pot to get value from high card or other made hands that felt gun shy on previous streets.


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

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!

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Sitting on this stack depth I'd prefer playing only suited connectors as opposed to off suit connectors, generally suited connectors have much play ability post flop and will flop strong to decent equity, consider it more of an implied odds hand and not so much playing it for top pair as we'll feel gun shy to call bets or bet for value.

Post flop, I like checking on the flop and turn, we have extremely thin showdown value versus a range of Qx and Ax high or pocket pairs. On the river, if we had specific reads of their tendencies (their actions on the flop and turn was indicative of weakness) I'd elect to bet 2/3 pot size for thin value, a min bet of 2c will get more calls form a wider range, but based on the villains stack depth a bigger sizing for value would have merit.


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi,

Hand Analysis


We are sitting on about 55 big blinds and will be at a positional disadvantage post flop, facing an early position raise we could easily be in situation were the it's 50/50 in terms of hand strength. We are going to need about 16 to 1 pot odds to set mine this hand and show a profit in the long run..i'm not really saying we should fold this hand..but if we had specific reads about this villains tendencies we might.

Post flop, I'd check raise the standard amount of 3x the villains sizing as opposed to leading out. There are several hands this villain may have that we can extract value from. AK AQs AJs ATs QQ KQ JJ AA TT. When the villain re-raises we have to get it all in on the flop, there are so many hands that we are a mile ahead of! Unfortunate out come to the hand. Do not be discouraged by this loss, this happens in poker.


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

Throughout the rest of your Bank Roll Builder training, please only use the buy-ins to play at the 0.01/0.02c full ring 9-max tables as your training is focused primarily on that buy in level and format. Playing anything other than that may make you ineligible for future bonuses.

Your third Bankroll Builder bonus is on it's way to you, great job so far.

There are three ways in which you can earn your next bonus.

1) Earn 10 VPPs AFTER receiving your 2nd bonus and you will automatically be credited with your 3rd bonus. Let us know if you hit that target

2) If you lose your 3rdd bonus at the tables please post the hands where you lost the money with here in this thread. As soon as you post the losing hands we will advise on the next step.

3) If you make a first deposit at PokerStars you will automatically be awarded your remaining bonuses from the Bankroll Builder promotion.

Hi,

Hand Analysis


Starting with pre-flop, I'd open for the standard sizing of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper, this will help to ensure the pot is built and it may reduce the amount of players in the pot which in turn increases our overall hand strength and equity.

Post flop, Did you have any specific reads about either of the villains tendencies? Have they been playing a lot of hands our shown any aggression on the river?


On that flop and turn texture it's really hard for the villain to have a range of besides A2 K2s, taking card removal into account from their range as the board has two 2's. I'd continuation bet 1/2 pot, we can expect to get reverse floated by high card combos Ax Kx Qx and quite possibly weaker pocket pairs 77 88 TT 55 44 33 and 9x taking a pot control line trying to get to showdown..as this board texture is just so dry.

On the river, we really need to ask our self if we decide to bet... "what are we trying to get value from" (same applies to the villains point of view) The board is dry, the ace could help out some of the villains high card combos that may have wanted to get to showdown. If we bet, is the villain capable of folding out a weak range of Ax after they've invest over half of their stack? Unlikely. Would the villain check call two streets with 9x just drying to get to showdown? Has the villain shown any aggression in previously played hands on the river? And there are many other factors to be considered when making a call on this river..

Tough spot with this hand, but I'd need reads about the villains tendencies to even consider making a call or bet on this river.



Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee
