Question on this hand is that I had pretty crap cards to start, but for only the price of the BB I called with decent position. Should I have saved my blinds? Where position wise should you be opening your range?

Hi Spiderpig253!

With J7 from the cutoff, I get a limp in front of me. With a bad hand, I'm going to muck this here, as it's not strong enough to raise with.

If I was on the button or even in the cutoff, if it folded to me, then I'd consider making a standard raise (3BB+1BB for each limper) with it. I would not limp it. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, so that I can avoid doing this.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Brilliant!

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 complete and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!

Question on this hand is: After the flop came, I had top pair with a flush re-draw. Original raiser preflop bet, and I re-raised him. Now I did this to try and get a sense of where I was compared to him, if it was just a C bet or not. After he re-raised me I called trying to get a look at the turn where I believed I had him if I hit my flush. I then folded to him following his bet on the turn suspecting a monster pocket pair (K's or A's). Which my suspicion that he had a big Pocket pair (probably K's or A's since I had a queen and one flopped) should I have re-raised him on the flop or just called? Or moved for a bigger bet?

PS: He showed after, it was KK of clubs and spades

3 reasons to make a big bet:
- put a lot of pressure on opponent
- to bluff people off decent hands
- to protect against strong draws

Hi Spiderpig253,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

I think preflop, we have a marginal call given the strength of our hand with three opponents left to act behind us. Also the villain started with less than 50bbs so we have little implied odds when we see a flop.
On the flop, we have a very strong hand. TP with a FD. Here I think we can go both ways: either raise to build a pot or call if we think our opponent is aggressive to bet multiple streets. We basically can't go too wrong with how we play this hand. I think when we raise and they go over the top its a perfect time to put the rest of our money into the pot. I would not consider folding after I have raised because there is enough dead money in the pot that we get good odds to call against the strongest of ranges. Even against KK we are a slight favorite OTF with 52% equity. As played, I would call the turn even if I know they had KK there because we are getting 2.6:1 on our call and we have 38% equity against KK exactly so we are getting good odds to make the call with a FD and gutshot straight draw.
