Hi,

Hand Analysis


On this depth of money, 50bb, this isn't really a hand we want to be playing from early position. With so many players left behind us to act, there is a very good chance that we are either out kicked by a better range of 5x or in most situations far behind from a percentage stand point by a wide range of holdings Ax Kx AA KK QQ JJ TT 99 88 77 66 55 AK AQ AJ AT, KQ KJ, QJ QT etc.. rarely ever are we going to feel comfortable betting this hand for value or calling bet with it even if we connect with the board in some way other than a straight.

Post flop, with so many players involved in the pot, we can be certain that a villain may have Ax, pocket pairs, unless the specific reads you had on all of the villains dictate otherwise. I personally would have checked on the flop and turn with the hopes of peeling a free card, our overall equity is minimal and we have to discount all of our outs that are a heart, as that may give an opponent a better made hand (flush).

With such an awkward stack depth in relation to the total pot size and the fact two of the villain have us covered, checking is the best option here. Any amount we bet is giving either of the villains nearly a break even call (correct pot odds) if they are drawing to two overs to the 3 and 4 plus a flush draw.

To sum things up, this hand is not strong enough to show a profit in the long run.


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!

Few hands from the cash table.



how could i see this coming
pls elaborate so i tend to avoid mistake


After watching the video here are the reason
(1) to scare off other players off their hand
(2) A semi bluff , so incase of a raise either everyone folds and he make his hand on turn/river.
as well control the agression and betting amounts.
(3) wish full thinking

did study and took me a while but i have passed cash game quiz.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Did you have any specific reades about this villains tendencies? It's worth noting their known hand ranges while playing and their tendencies from previously played hands, as this may help you accurately assess a situation that may arise in game.. Poker is a game of incomplete inforamtion and the more information you have..the better..

There is a good chance that if the button folds we will have a positioanl advantage postflop and our stack depth warrants alot of post flop manueverability. Thia hand is worthy of a call, it has a lot of post flop playabilty as opposed to the off suit version of this hand.. However facing a middle position raise we should proceed with caution post flop if we flop a pair, because there is the possibilty of our hand being out kicked by a better range of Qx or Jx AQ KQ AJ AJ or the disguised premium over pairs AA KK QQ JJ. Plus, the majortiy of a tight middle position range will be constructed of Ax or 99+.

Post flop, it's such a dry board texture, considering that we hold a jack, we can take card removal into account from both of the villains range as two jacks are present on the board..which in turn reduces the liklihood of the combos they may have of Jx. If we are concerned of a better Jx being present.. we would need really specific reads about their tendencies to fold this hand on any street.. the only hands that we lose to are KJ AJ 55 TT 33.. without reads.. there are going to be few combos in their value range that are either made hands 99 88 77 QQ KK AA or have some high card showdown value AK AQ.. Just calling down is the correct line, consider this to be a cooler.


Hand Analysis


The huge gap between the ace and the six limits the overall playabilty of our hand post flop, and with five other villains left behind us to act there is a good chance that one of the villains may turn with a better range of Ax A9 AT AJ AQ AK..essentially we could get into a spot were we are outkicked by that range post flop.

Post flop, a good general rule of thumb when deciding to bet for value or as a bluff, is to make a bet sizing of 2/3 to 3/4 the size of the pot..this will help to ensure a stack to pot ratio is built and value is made with our strong made hand, or to give the villains improper pot odds to draw out aswell generate fold equity to get them to fold a mediocre/decnet made holding.

As mentioned above, we have kicker issues, that is one of the consequences of playing these low kicker suited aces..they out us into spots were we feel a shrug call has merit due to either having top pair, three of a kind etc.. when we should really be playing a suited low ace for a flush.. without specific reads on this villain, I'd be bet/folding to a check raise on the river, we lose to most of their value range AK AQ AJ AT A9 A4 A2 99 44, split the pot with A7 A6 A5 A3..and given that we bet such a small amount on the flop and turn 44 and 99 may be willing to call down to bluff catch... re-raising all in is only going to isolate us versus their value range, I'd prefer re-raising to their check raise sizing and folding to a re-raise..

Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee
