Hi,

Hand Analsyis


When decide that my hand is playable I will enter the pot for the standard amount of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper, although this hand from early to middle position is not strong enough to be isolating a villain, so should be folded pre-flop. if we where in a late position near the button, we'd raise it up as we will have a positional advantage post flop.


Post flop, raising the flop to 3/4 pot to fullt pot is great, it's a family pot and it's plausible that one of the villains does indeed has a two card flush combo, plus we could get value forem pocket pairs, worse Qx, ace high and king high.


On the turn I would have bet 3/4 pot size, we want to get the stack to pot ratio set up for the river. Plus we want to charge this villain close to the max for chasing any draws or other reverse floats they could have in their range.

On the river, we have blocker to this villain having any 2nd nut hand, I'd bet about 1/2 pot for pure value as the villain's stack depth can afford the call and they are not pot committed, we could get looked up by ace high, k high or a pocket pair.


Food for thought, a good post flop bet sizing is 2/3 to 3/4 pot size, sometimes a situation may arise such as the hand you submitted where it'll be difficult for the villain to have a hand as we have blockers to possible combinations etc..


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

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,

I have completed the next step as requested. Please see below answers to question and my hand replayer. I have also completed and passed the cash game test.

Q. 3 reasons why a player might make a big bet?
A. To put a lot of pressure on opponents, to gain value from very strong hands, to protect against strong draws.

Hi,

Hand Analysis


Sitting on about 90bb stack depth this hand is worthy to open for the standard amount of 3x the big blind from under the gun (first to act). Post flop we hit top two pairs, this is a really strong hand and since we hold blocker to some of the possible Ax and Jx combos, I'd elect to bet about 1/2 pot on the flop and turn, the villains stack depth is shallow just shy of 30bb and they may be on a marginal draw with KQ QT aswell maybe a worse range of Ax..we want them to call.. On the turn taking card removal into account, it's unlikely they are holding one of the combos of 9x.. Around 1/2 pot bet sizing maybe would have got one more street worth of value.


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi Cannon,

Thanks for the reply and instructions on the next installment of Bankroll Builder. The only question I have right now is how do I earn VPP points? I know what FPP's are, whats the difference and can I earn these with onl a $2 bankroll?

Im not quite ready to make my first deposit yet, still learning and I hope I dont loose this $2 as quick as the last one :0) but if I do then as you've said just post the hands and then do you just apply the next $2?

Thanks,

currychip3

Hi,

Please >>click here<< for a complete overview of how you can earn VPPs! Yes you can definitely earn VPPs with your current bank roll, there are several players that have done so under my training.

If you happen to lose your second buy-in, just post a hand replay of the hand that lost it, I'll analyze the hand, award you with the third bonus and advise of the next step in your Bank Roll Builder training.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi Cannon,

I really didnt expect to be replying to you asking for the next part of th bankroll builder so soon. I feel like I've let you down after this hand. Ive done really well up to this and I have taken you advise and applied it in all games until this. Honestly I know I should have folded once the flop came with an ace but I really didnt believe this guy had one. Clearl a mistake but its all about learning from my mistakes right? Just so you know I'm not wasting your time, I placed in top 50 in the WCOOP Main Event freeroll on Saturday, 16966 started and I'm into round 2 this Sunday. So I do have potential to be good.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

I'd definitely call on the flop given our pot odds, we'd roughly be breaking even on a call, although on the turn I'd fold..here's why.


Let's look at all of the combos of likely holdings the villain may have of Ax: A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 A9 AT AJ AQ AK AA.. if you are to take all of the suits for each card that being diamonds, clubs, hearts, spades and think of all of the possible ways you could be dealt any of the above hands..the number will be 16 combos of each hand! So remember this, we are playing up against a range of hands and when evaluating certain board textures we could discount certain combos with card removal. (eg. paired boards, we have Ax board has A which reduces the likelihood of the villain having a combo of Ax etc..)


Usually on these mono flop textures when a villain leads into us, their line could be indicative of trying to bet for value and protection as they do not have a suit. Although in some cases (player dependent) a villains lead could mean semi-bluffing to a flush with a high card blocker or a flopped weak flush. The villain is willing to play an inflated pot out of position to..looks like an ace on the turn..


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi Cannon,

For my last bankroll builder installment it says above reach 10 VPPs after receiving 2nd installment. I was on 7 VPPs when I got this, I am now on 19 VPPs but the dollars were not automatically added. Can you check to see what level of VPPs I was on at 2nd dollar amount incase I was mistaken?

Regards
