Hi Ublehaš44!

With AA from UTG (or any other hand I'm going to play), I'm going to make a standard opening raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, I will raise to 6 chips.

I see a 3-way flop with straight and a flush draw and when the first opp checks to me, I need to make a value bet. Bets post-flop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With two opps in the hand, I will bet 2/3 pot or 17 chips. I do not want to check, as the only way that I want to check a made hand is if there is not a single card in the deck that can beat me (nobody could draw to beat me with a single card).

On the turn, I will once again make a standard 2/3 pot bet.

The river gives me the top full house. Once again, I do NOT want to check. I need to make a standard value bet, which with 2 opps in the hand is 2/3 pot. If the opp raises, then I will shove since this bet pot-commits me.
---------------------
With J8o from the BB, when the other opps limp, I'll gladly check and see a free flop. The flop is VERY coordinated and gives me two pair. Now an opp shoves. My decision here will need to be made based on my read of the opp. If the opp is loose, I will re-shove to try to isolate them. If the opp is extremely tight (would only shove a straight), then I will need to muck.
----------------------
With 67o in the BB, once again, I'm happy to check and see a free flop when everyone limps. When I flop top pair and the first opp checks, I CANNOT check. I need to make a standard value bet (to get value for my top pair and also to try to get information about the opp's hands). With 4 or more in the pot, a standard bet sizing is a pot-sized bet, so I will bet 70.
When I hit trips on the turn and it checks to me, I once again, need to make a standard value bet. With 3 opps in the hand, the standard sizing is 3/4 pot, so I will bet 210. I want to keep all of my bets standard, as this helps to conceal the strength of my hand. Opps that bet more with better cards and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent.. something that I need to avoid.
When the opp raises, I will re-raise with my trips. A standard sizing for this bet is to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise. BUT.. this bet will be more than 1/3 of my stack, meaning that I'm pot-committed and cannot fold. Due to this, I need to shove.
-------------------------
With KQo from the cutoff, I'm going to make a standard opening raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper (50 chips). I do not want to limp behind as my hand plays much better against less opponents.
I flop 2nd pair on a board with an A and 3 opps. In most situations, I would make a standard c-bet of 3/4 pot... but since many players like to play Ax, my pair of kings may not be the best hand. Due to this, I'm going to check the flop and hope to see a free turn card.
I turn trip K's and when it checks to me, I, once again, will make a standard value bet of 3/4 pot (since there are 3 opps in the hand). I do not want to bet more nor less than this amount, as I need to keep my bet sizes standard.
On the river, with 2 opps left, a standard bet sizing for this many opps is 2/3 pot, so I will bet 1250.

The keys to these hands are to make standard bets and raises and to play TAG poker (tight aggressive). Playing passive poker, checking and calling, is going to lose chips in the long run.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

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!

Reasons to make a big bet are:
- To put a lot of pressure on opponents
- To gain value from very strong hands
- To protect against strong draws

Hi Ublehaš44,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

Hand #1: This one is a tricky spot when villain donk bets into us with an overcard on the flop and then fires the turn on a King. I think we can guess that villain would have some FDs in his range and mostly Tx and maybe some under pairs or a hand like JJ for an overpair as I think AA-QQ would be 3betting preflop. I think the King might be a card we could use to turn our hand into a bluff to get folds from Tx/JJ and put pressure on FDs. We could potentially raise their turn bet but their flop and turn sizing look kind of weird, they lead flop pretty small and bet turn fairly larger so this could either be something strong by the turn or a bluff/semi-bluff so the turn decision should either bet a raise or fold imo. I would personally lead towards folding with limited information on villain. As played, I think checking back the river with showdown value is better than betting because their are no worse cards that can call us.

Hand #2: I would raise flop bigger given the board is connected and we are playing vs a limp/caller who in my opinion looks like a weak opponent whom we can extract more value from. Same goes for the turn. Gross river spot! When they take that line, I think there will be little to no bluffs in their range, so the question is: is our TPTK good by the river? Given the action, the've seen us raise their donk bets on two streets so I think they can easily put us on atleast TP which they obviously are saying they have atleast that too. And given they shove on a board that has two potential straights on boards I'm thinking they either made atleast two pair with QJ or JT or a straight with 98 and a badly played AK

Hi Ublehaš44,

I think this is a close decision between folding or going all in. Because of our stack stack we cannot call the 3bet to set mine. Also, shoving would be villain dependent. If you have seen this player calling with 66-22 then shoving might be okay but really when we shove we are either expecting them to fold their bluffs and win the pot or at best flipping with AK/AQ. I think raising and folding to a 3bet is the viable option imo.

When you hit your target of 10 VPPs we will award you with your final Bankroll Builder bonus. Let us know when you reach the target.

Also, if you make a deposit at this stage we will also award you with your final bonus.

Best of Luck at the tables and let us know as soon as you have earned the 10 VPPs or if you make a deposit.
