Hi,

Hand Analysis

Sitting on a 20bb stack depth this isn't really a hand we want to be entering the pot with, we should wait for atleast Ax KT+ QTs+ or any pocket pair 88+. The huge gap between the queen and four limits the overall playabilty of our hand and the four is considered a low kicker card.

Post flop, given that this is a multi way pot and a middling board texture with many draws present, our overall equity is very minimal in this spot even though we are priced in on a call on the flop and turn. I would have folded on the flop, there are just to many Tx combos that any of the villains can have (16 combos of each hand). It appeared villain5 did indeed try to bluff with 9 high on all three streets, even with or without specific reads on V5 V7 and V8 we need to be concered about the flush being present or a better range of Qx AQ KQ QJ QT Q9 Q8 all of which have us beat.

Nice pot and nice win, 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.

I`d like you to take a look at this hand. I know I made a mistake betting and I`m asking for a different view on the play.
Last, but not the least, I thank you for your effort by collaborating with me on the Bankroll Builder program.

Hi,


Hand Analysis


Let's start with did you have any specific reads on the villains? This alone will decide what our course of action will be. This is a strong enough hand to be isolating villain1 with, however, we need to take into consideration the four other villain's left to act behind us, if they re-open the action for close to the standard amount we may have to pitch our hand into the muck as there are some Ax combos that can be in their range that have us beat coupled with premiums.

Post flop, we flop top pair with top kicker, on this stack depth it's hit and miss readless, meaning we are either betting to get value from flush combos, worse Jx or high card floats or getting value owned (betting into a stronger made hand thining we have a wide range beat). given that this is a family pot, I like that you bet in to the pre-flop raiser because it allows them to close the action with a raise all in squezzing out the other villains left to act behind him...we could potentially get value from worse made hands such as KJ QJ TT 99 88 and two card flush which is a pretty narrow rangecombos...but bear in mind that there is also a AA KK QQ well within villain6's range given their pre-flop re-raise...


Hand Analysis


Sitting on 8bb all we can really do with this hand is re-raise all in, our stack depth is just to shallow to be flatting from the small blind with a pocket pair like this..as most board textures will present over cards to were we will fell gun shy to bet/bluff or call any bets.

Post flop, I would have elected to either go all in on the flop or check raise...in fact check raising would have the most merit...the villains will likely have two over cards which equates to 6outs and minimal equity..so we mind aswell alow the pre-flop raiser to continuation bet their entire range..and generally a button opening range will be much wider than other positions...unfortunate out come to this hand.. If we re-raised all in pre-flop we could either win the pot uncontested or force a coin flip with one of the villains..


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
