Two players kept raising preflop but only min raise. Confused as to why they kept doing that.

Hi AcmeX25!

The first thing that I see with this hand is even before it starts. Whenever I sit at a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over is a huge drain to a player's bankroll.

With K2o in the hijack, I get 3 limps in front of me. I'd like to muck this very bad hand preflop, but since the blind was posted, I will check and hope to see a free flop. If any of the opps raises behind me, I need to muck because I have a very bad hand, as it's nowhere near strong enough to raise with. If I did have a better hand and wanted to raise, I would need to raise to between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise.

Patience is a big key in poker and I need to learn to fold bad hands preflop and wait until I find a situation where I'm ahead, before I put chips into the pot.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Please Note: Due to the holiday period please allow extra time for your Bankroll Builder reply from the Team


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!

3 reasons why a player might make a big bet:
- to protect against strong hands
- to put a lot of pressure on opponents
- to gain value from very strong hands

Hi,


Hand Analysis


I noticed that you posted your big blind out of turn, please avoid doing this and wait for your big blind option to come around. Frequently posting out of turn will prove to be costly and may impact your win rate. Our stack depth is at about 50bb and this hand will often be in bad shape versus a tight middle position range (villain 1) there are going to be several combos of Tx AT KT QT JT that have us outkicked and let's factor in premium pocket pairs AA KK QQ JJ TT. I'd fold this hand and avoid the risk of ruin getting attached to a mediocre pair post flop or calling an all in pre-flop.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
