I am not sure if you had a question with this hand since you folded preflop. But, let's take a look. AQo is a good starting hand. However, you are out of position in the bb. You are facing an utg raise and two calls.

Reads, are important to make the best choice here, especially on utg villain. What range of hands can we put him on? Does he open often from early position?

Folding at play money and 2NL if you are uncomfortable or uncertain about a situation is always an ok choice. There are so many good, clear spots that we can give up some spots that are unclear like this one.

Calling is also fine. If you flop a pair, there is a good chance you will be ahead. However, being out of position makes postflop play difficult. If you had AQs I would gladly call here, because your hand will have good playability postflop. Unsuited isn't as easy to play.

Raising is also a decent option if we think there is a good chance that at least one opponent will fold. Although, players don't fold to light at play money. So, we risk building the pot without improving our hand.

I am unsure what your thinking in this spot was. But, without a read, I would think calling preflop would be the most profitable line in the long run. We have a decent hand. By calling we don't invest too much and can fold on a bad flop. But as I said, folding any time you are unsure is always a safe line that minimizes your losses.

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!
