I guess the hand was played too risky? The truth is.. nobody plays serious with playmoney..

I also did the basic test.. is there anything else i need to do?

Thank you!

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Even though play money tables tend to be not serious at times, that is a good place to work on the basics such as bets sizing, hand selection and adjusting to player tendencies.

Even though a hand like this plays well mult-iway, let's break it down from the start.

Pre-flop, a good general rule of thumb when deciding that our hand is playable when the option is on us, a pre-flop raise sizing of 3x the big blind (so if the blinds are 1/2, we would raise to 6 chips) +1 big blind for each limper, this will help to ensure that a pot is built and it will thin the amount of players involved in the pot (real money).

Post flop, usually when a villain makes a post oak bet (small bet) into a big pot, it could mean weakness such as 2nd pair or they could be betting their entire range, I would have preferred the reverse float and just check>call to re-evaluate my course of action on the turn as to whether I pick up back door equity or not. On the turn I would have checked called once more as we will have a decent amount of equity versus just about any made hand on that board texture and given the villains flop bet sizing..rest assured we will be able to peel at a bargain price once more on the turn.


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!
