Hi,

Please follow step #2 in my previous post.

2) Post a 'PLAY MONEY' hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer Below is an instuctional video on how to do so.


3) Pass the Poker Basic course. >>click here<<

This is to ensure that you know how to use the hand replayer tool and know the basics of poker. As you will need to post hand replays throughout most of the steps in your Bank Roll Builder training.


Kind regards,

Hi,

Hand Analysis


Sitting on this stack depth we can do one of two actions, 1.) open for the standard raise sizing of 3x the big blind, or 2.) fold. Ideally we want to be entering the pot for raise especially from under the gun (first to act pre-flop) this will in turn give us the initiative in the pot and players will be more keen to show more respect towards our open as the starting hand requirements from this position tend to be weighted towards strong to premium holdings. We are looking to play fit or fold with this hand post flop, meaning, flop a set (three of a kind) or fold, every single board texture is going to contain an over card to our hand and rightly so should we feel gun shy and rarely have the urge to bet this hand without the goods (three of a kind, or equity to a straight draw..).

When all of the raising action ensues ahead of us, we can be very certain that the villains could be doing this with strong to mediocre holdings...all of which make our overall equity minimal with so many players involved in the pot...we do not have the correct pot odds to continue in the hand, as we need 20 to 1 pot odds to show a profit in the long run when trying to set mine.. good disciplined fold!


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.

Hi,

Hand Analysis


Did you have any specific reads on the villain involved in the pot? Sitting on a 40bb stack depth this hand could be considered a fold from under gun. The earlier we are to act pre-flop our starting hand requirements should be much stronger, this is mainly due to the fact that there are several villains left behind us to act...in turn increasing the likelihood of them turning up with a better range of Qx Jx or a premium holding.

A good rule of thumb when deciding to bet for value or as a bluff is to use a sizing of 2/3 to 3/4 pot size, this will help to ensure a pot is built to set up the stack to pot ratio efficiently or to fold out mediocre holdings.


Post flop, I would have continuation bet 2/3 pot size on the flop and turn, it's a relatively dry board texture and there are not to many hands that can continue on this board or future streets besides 97 Q9 J9 Ax Kx. On the turn when the villain raises us, we would need really specific reads about their tendencies to consider folding this hand coupled with if we are readless a fold would have merit..KJ AJ 88 TT JJ are all hands that could be in the villains value range on this turn and these are hands that we lose to..there are very few hands that the villain could be raising in this spot that we beat..I would have folded to save bets for a better situation.


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi,

Unfortunately at this time there are no videos on any of our youtube playlists that give a guide for our quizzes/courses. I'd suggest emailing ideas@mypokerschoolonline.com about that idea.

Please let me know when you have passed the Cash Game Quiz and we'll award you with your next bonus.

Hey there,

Yes, we have videos, you'll find them all here:

http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/cou...ideo-Tutorials

One word of caution though, all the questions in the Cash Game quiz come from the written articles. A question that is asked in the quiz might not be covered in the videos so learning and studying the written articles is advised.

Let us know as soon as you pass the Cash Game quiz so we can ship your next bonus to you
