If you miss, try to check down the hand and fold to any significant bet. In general, the only two hands you should be happy getting all in with preflop are KK and AA. With all other hands you shouldn't be risking your stack until you have seen the flop and have a strong made hand such as a set or better.

GL and have fun 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!

Player may want to make a big bets:
-To put a lot of pressure on opponents
-To bluff people off decent hands
-To protect against strong draws.

78s can be a good starting hand under the right conditions. Preferably we should be in late position, have multiple opponents and most importantly, we want to see the flop cheaply. This is a speculative hand that usually misses the flop, but has the potential to win a big pot the few times you make a strong hand. Here from early postion, I suggest folding every time. If you are going to play and are the first to enter the pot always do so with a raise, regardless of your cards! This conceals the strength of your hand and gives you the possibility of getting everyone to fold.

Calling the preflop raise is not good. Your hand is not strong enough to call with. Moreover, the villain has position on you which will make postflop play tough.

You miss the flop, so check-folding would be your best choice. With speculative hands such as smaller pair or suited connectors we should fold all missed flops. This keeps our losses small.

Checking the turn was fine. On the river you make a flush, but not the nut flush with an A. Also, the board is paired making a full house possible. In spots like this it is better to check and call a smallish bet rather than bet yourself. There are very few hands that you are beating that the villain would call with here. If you check to him, he might take a stab at the pot with two pair hands or Ax hands for example that you are beating.

GL and have fun at the tables!
