Hi daj77,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

I prefer folding K6o; our hand is very weak and will play poorly post flop without initiative. When we are bet into and called, I think raising is a bad play. Two people have already showed interest in the pot and I expect atleast one of them to have an Ace. And given this is play money, I think the average player will hardly ever fold TP. So fold preflop, and fold flop.

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!

Due to the preflop action i had no reason to believe that he connected with the flop in any way. Other than the loose preflop call how could i have avoided this mistake. I felt the hand was played impulsively

Hi daj77, I don't know why we are raising Q9o from UTG. I'm just folding my hand preflop. I also don't like x/c-ing this flop. What we are looking at are two overcards that do not connect with this flop completely. So I would look to cbet this flop and barrel face cards on the turn. Shoving the river is pretty bad imo we are sort of turning our hand into a bluff on the K when we actually have showdown value. The point is we will fold worse hands with our river all in bet and get called by better hands. I think all of this could have been avoided by simply folding such a weak holding from that position preflop.
