Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.

Hi Coach,

I found an interesting hand and i wanna know if i took good lines .



Also i watched the 'Getting Started' video and i passed the Poker Basic course.

I wait new instructions!

P.S Is very hard to play a hand at play money tables without someone going all in.The table was full ring but the rest of the player was sit out because with a hand before half of the table was all in

Hi iamdanut!

With KJs from the cutoff, I get a limp in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With one limp, I will bet 4BB or 40 chips.

I flop a gutshot royal flush draw and have an opp lead into me for 110. Now, I need to see if I have the correct odds to call. I need to call 110 into a pot that will be 445 (24.7%). I have 1 out to a royal flush. 8 outs to a flush and 3 more outs to a straight, for 12 outs total. From the rule of 4 and 2, each out is worth 2% equity to the turn, so my hand is worth 24%. This makes calling VERY marginal, but with all of these outs to the nuts, I'll call. I do not want to raise, as I'm most likely behind and am NOT the favorite to win the hand (I'm a 52% to 48% underdog).

The turn gives me a pair, but with an A on the board, I can easily be behind Ax. When the opp checks to me, I need to check behind and see a free river card and hope that it improves my hand.

If the river improves my hand (hits one of my 12 outs to the nuts or is another K), then I will make a 1/2 pot value bet on the river, which is the standard bet sizing for being in a heads-up pot. If the river is a blank for me, I need to check/fold the river.

I want to be getting my chips into the pot when I'm most likely ahead, not when I can easily be behind and am the favorite to lose the pot.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

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!

Hello Raiser,

I finished the all 3 things requiered for the next bonus.

1. I played at 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer
2. I`ve watched the Bet Sizing video.
3. I`ve studied and passed the Cash Game Quiz.

Here is a hand that i considered interesting:



Also 4 reasons why 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

P.S My bankroll is 0.00 $ unfortunately. If i can receive a new one i will do my best to make it big. Sorry

Hi iamdanut! I'll analyse the hand in post #12.

This is indeed an interesting hand, as you made two pairs on a very wet board. I just played a hand like this myself, and I had to use my timebank to decide what to do!
Pre-flop, KJs is good enough to call with against a late position opener, as it flops pretty well, and you'll sometimes have the best hand pre-flop. KJ offsuit, however, might be a fold, as that's more of a trouble hand, especially when you're out of position (first to act). So you call and see a flop of AJT with a flush draw in the wrong suit for you. Checking to the pre-flop raiser is good, as he should be making a continuation bet on this board very often, whether he connected or not. Bottom pair won't be the best hand very often, so you don't want to play a big pot, but you have a gutshot straight draw to go with it, bringing you 3 outs to the nuts. (The would make a straight for you, but put a flush out there). So I like the flop call. The turn is where it gets really interesting. You made two pairs, which could be good, but now villain will hold the nuts if he has a queen. If villain bets more than half pot here, I would fold, because he'll have AQ or KQ almost always, and you only have 4 outs to a full house. Villain actually checks behind. Unless he is the kind of (bad) player that would slowplay the nuts, I think you can rule out a straight.
The river is the blankest card in the deck. That deuce doesn't help anyone. So now we have to work out how likely you are to have the best hand, and decide whether villain will call a bet with a worse one. There's an argument for making a smallish value-bet here, as villain could call with a worse hand like A9 or KT, but the problem is the only other hand combinations that would call have you beat, and there's a lot of them! Just about everything that connected on the flop either made a straight, a set or better two pairs. Tou're beating KT, A9 and a few worse aces, but losing to AA, KK, JJ, TT, AK, AQ, AJ, AT, KQ, QJ, QT and chopping with another KJ. It's kind of pointless making a bet if you'll only get called by a worse hand occasionally, but will always get called by several better hands. I think the best idea is to check and either call or fold, depending on the bet-size (if any) that villain chooses. With much of his range, he *should* be betting for value (sets and AK/AJ for instance) but it's common to see villains check behind at these stakes, because they are scared their two pairs is no good. It's actually a great result for you that villain failed to make a value bet. You got to show your hand down for free. It wasn't the best hand, but you didn't have to call another 15c or so to find out. So you should be happy villain saved you 15c, as it would be very hard to fold for a bet of that size.

The main thing you can learn from this hand is to think about ranges of hands and how they connect with the board. If there are many hands in a range that are worse than yours and will call a bet, you can make a bet for value. If there aren't many (or any) worse hands that can call a bet, then check it down and try and see a showdown for free. On a board such as this, you should recognise that a hand like two pairs is relatively weak, especially when it's not top two pairs. On a less-connected board, you could go ahead and lead the river for value, expecting to get called by one pair hands, but when a villain can have several better two pairs, sets and straights, then betting serves no purpose. It's quite a complex subject, but with experience you'll soon be able to tell which hands have "fat value" and which are more marginal with "showdown value". When it's the latter, keep the pot small by checking and calling, not betting and raising.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty
