Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

had a question about this situation. was it a correct move to call the all in and go all in with 67 suited or not? i faced a situation like this before. i had a pare of ace, i bet 7bb preflop, one called me. in the dry flop i went all in and he called having 67 and needed two cards to complete his straight draw. in the turn and river he could complete his straight draw. i would like to know if my action was correct or not, and how i could act better.

Thank You

Hi mogharen!

With 67s, I get a limp (the player that posted the blind), then a HUGE overbet shove. A standard raise for this opp would be to 3BB+1BB for each limper or 8 chips, but they bet 533. To call an overbet like this, I need to have a made, premium hand (QQ+) and I need to muck anything marginal. 67s is very marginal, so I need to fold this preflop here every time.

I want to make all of my bets and raises standard, as that helps to conceal the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent.. something that I want to avoid doing.

Hope this helps and good luck 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!

Reasons a player may want to make a big bet

1. To put a lot of pressure on opponents
2. To bluff people off decent hands
3. To gain value from very strong hands
4. To protect against strong draws

Hi mogharen,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

Our main consideration here is our stack size. I think with 38bbs we can definitely raise 99 OTB for value and cbet this board. I however would cbet 1/2 pot. Betting that small compared to the pot size will not accomplish anything. Here we want to get value from worse hands. like lower pocket pairs and draws and look to fold out hands that have some equity against us, hands that have overcards like AQ/KQ type of hands. Now OTT things get tricky, because hands that we beat, smaller PPs may now be reluctant to call twice but hands that beat us are always calling/raising Tx,Jx so in this spot we might want to take a pot control line. However, since we bet so small OTF we expect more hands to float and the turn puts out a few more draws out there so perhaps this would be a bet/fold spot and check back river like you did; I like that.
