Hi IRiozZ! I'll analyse the hand in post #4.

You have A8s on the button and this is a fine hand to try stealing the blinds with, but the player in the cutoff makes a ridiculous raise of 152, which is most of your stack. Of the three options available, calling is probably the worst. You should go all in or fold. Calling is bad, because you'll be totally committed to the pot, as the pot will be much larger than your remaining stack, so you'd have to ship the rest in even if you miss the flop. By going all in, you are guaranteed to see all 5 cards. That being said, I prefer a fold. Villain would have to be playing like a maniac for me to be comfortable stacking off A8s. Your hand is not a monster, as it's losing to all pocket pairs and better aces (AK-A9). You're not a big favourite against random hands like JTs. As played, you call and the small blind also calls, so you see a flop of AK2. You made top pair, so it's standard to get the rest of your money in. Both villains show worse hands, so you triple up, but this hand wasn't really "poker". It's just random gambling, like bingo. You won't see much action like this on the real money tables, where pre-flop raises will tend to be 3bb or 4bb, not 76bb! Indeed, if someone just raises 3bb in a real money game, it might be best to fold A8s even to that size.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty

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 IRiozZ!

Preflop, calling with Q10o is questionable. This would be at the very bottom of my range and might be ok since you have position. However, normally we want to fold unsuited gappers like this. They just don't flop well often enough. It is a tough hand to play postflop.

As played, you flopped two pair. Look closesly at the board though. A straight is already possible as well as straight draw top pair type of hands. Also, you do not have the top two pair. This is what I meant by being tough to play post flop. Here you get what should be a decent flop with two pair. Yet,it is difficult to know where we stand against the villains. It is unclear if we have the best hand at the moment. Calling the flop bet is fine. Against certain opponents we might even consider raising here.

Calling the turn is ok if you think the opponents would do this with a pair and a draw with AK for example. If you put the villain on a made straight, we won't improve to a full house often enough to make calling profitable. There are only 4 outs that will help us.

On the river you get a great card giving you a full house. You still might be beat by KQ, but you are beating all the straights that will most likely pay you off. Your raise was quite large and risks forcing the villain to fold a large part of his range that would have called a standard sized raise. The villain bet 24c into a pot of 50c. I would recommend raising a bit more than his bet so about 55c - 60c. This size will get called most of the time ensuring good value for you. And, the villain may overplay his hand and 3b all in which is great. Your ai raise got called, so it worked out nicely for you in this spot.

Remember though, when betting for value, ask yourself, what is the maximum amount that the hands you are beating are likely to call. We dont want to bet so much that they fold

GL and have fun at the tables!
