Hi,

Hand Analysis

On this depth of money and the fact taht we will have a positional advantage post flop, we can certainly consider calling to try and flop some equity to a flush and/or straight draw. We should be looking to play this hand for top pair due to our low kicker, rarely will we feel comfortable betting it for value or calling bets.

On the flop we have to discount all of our outs that are of the heart suit, the reason for this is because the - - or may give one of the villains a flush, straight or top piar higher kicker. With that said, our overall equity in the pot is minimal, but our stack depth merits a call to re-evaluate our course of action on the turn.

Our turn play should solely rely on the reads we have about villain2's tendnecies, have they been loose, tight aswell known showdown ranges. The problem with re-raising on a four straight board 679T is that if we hold an 8..that'll in turn reduce the possiblities of the villain having any of the combos of 8x and maybe get them to fold. Yes, there are one or two pair combos that could call us, but we are better off calling their raise on the turn to open up their entire thin value/bluff range on the river as we will be in postion to pick them off.



Hand Analysis


Generally a limping range is perceieved as a weak range of holdings.
Due to the huge gap between the ten and five this hand is unplayable and will not show a profit in the long run. it should not be raised to try and isolate one of the limpers. Try to avoid playing hands such as these, they aren't considered value hands. These value hands are considered the top of our range AK AQ AJ ATs KQ QJ JTs 99 TT JJ QQ KK AA these are the hands we should be focusing on when first starting out at the real money tables, as they will show you the most profit and make for much easier decisions post flop.

Post flop, there are several 7x combos that the villain could have...16 combos fo each hand 72 73 74 75 76 78 79 7T J7 Q7 K7 A7. I'd be keen to maybe check call one street depending on our pot odds to see if we can improve our hand and give up on future streets if it doesn't. Raising and/or betting this hand could possibly be isolating our weak holding versus a better range of made hands...eseentially value owning ourself.

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!

Hi,



Hand Analysis


Sitting on a stack depth of just over 50bb I might consider folding this hand preflop facing an early position open aswell when villain6 makes such a huge 3bet sizing. Villain6 re-opens thes action and appears to be for pure value, they seem to not be concerned that there is three other villains left to act behind. Our hand versus a tight 3bet range will not play to well, AK AQ KQs AA KK QQ JJ all have us beat.

Post flop, even though we flop top pair with a decent kicker. What range of worse hands can we get value from that are part of a tight 3bet range? Without specific reads, I'm going to presume this a tight villain. Did you have any reads?


Hand Analysis
:J:9
At a 9max table the earlier we are to act pre-flop our starting hand range should be tighter than in later positions. The reason for this is because there are still so many players left behind us to act, which in turn will increase the likelihood of a better and much stronger range of hands being present, AJ KJ QJ JJ AA KK QQ AK AQ would all have us dominated. If I elected to play this hand I would played it for a potential straight draw and not so much for top pair due to kicker issues, I also would have enterend the pot for a raise of 3x the big blind. With all of what was said, there are more downsides to playing this hand and I'd generally pitch it into the muck preflop.


Post flop, even though we have top pair, we should be concerned about our kicker card and over pairs being present. The villain showed the willingness to play an inflated pot on a relatively short stack depth of 40bb knowing that they'll be at a positional disadvantage...that right there alone might be an indicator of the strength of their hand. When they 4bet us post flop, I might fold...unless we had reads about their tendencies that would dictate otherwise.


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
