Hi anastasisgod!

With AK, or any other hand that I want to play, I'm going to make a standard opening raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. By keeping my bets and raises standard, it helps to keep the opps guessing as to the cards that I'm playing. Players that bet more with better hands and less with worse are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent.

I then get an abnormally small 3-bet (standard is to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise) and then an abnormally large 4-get (same thing here as std is to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise).

Whether I shove or fold here is going to be based on my read of the opp. If the opp is playing loose, then I'll shove (don't want to call, as doing so would pot-commit me and I couldn't fold after calling). If the opp is very tight, then I'll fold since I do not have a made hand (I only have ace high).

Hope this helps and good luck 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 anastasisgod!

There are a few points to note in this hand. Firstly, if you are playing a regular full ring table, you should rarely be readless. Make use of your time and study how the other play, especially the hands you are not in. The easiest way is to review any hand that goes to the showdown. Go though how the players played their hand.

Here you have Q6o in the big blind. It looks tempting to call preflop with so many players in the hand. However, ask yourself "what am I hoping to flop with this hand?" You won't be flopping a flush or straight draw. If you flop a 6 you will rarely have top pair. Worst case you flop a Q and lose a big pot to a villain with a Q but a better kicker. In addition, you are out of position. Playing weak hands from the blinds is one of the biggest leaks with beginners. It looks cheap, but it is not. These "small" calls add up to be a huge drain on your bankroll. I strongly suggest folding hands like this in the blinds.

As played, you got a decent flop. Note, your hand is not invulnerable. Slowplaying is not recommended. Actually, at 2NL there are few if any spots where slowplaying is recommmended. When you get a strong hand, keep it simple and bet. Here the flop is dry, so make a 50% pot bet. As played, I would make my raise a bit larger, about 25c.

On the turn, I would have bet somewhat smaller, about 70% of the pot. This keeps drawing hands in better than betting pot sized. The river is a bad card for you as a straight seems likely. However with so much already in the pot, getting all in is fine. The villain will show up with enough hands that you are beating to make this profitable.

The biggest mistake was getting involved with the hand preflop.

GL and have fun at the tables!
