Hi,


Hand Analysis


Sitting on this stack depth of 120bb it may be tempting to limp our small blind option or call when there are several callers in a single raised pot, however we will be at a positional disadvantage post flop and we wont be flopping a flush draw often enough (roughly 17% of the time) for our play to show any profit..especially since there are several other combos of spades that have us beat on a draw or could basically be freerolling us. With all this said, I'd prefer just folding pre-flop to save bets for a better position and starting hand.

Post flop, we flop three of kind, but given the nature of this being a multiway pot there are still several combos of 7x that have us outkicked (een if we try to take card removal from their range into account) also a diamond flush draw..I like that you lead the flop with a bet, it was a good sizing to get value from Qx stray diamond draws and high card combos. As for the river play, the stack to pot ratio is set up perfect to go all in and even though the villain played as if they wanted to get to showdown on the flop and turn (played as a flush) there is still some merit going all in to get value from the above mentioned hand ranges (if we had specific reads of their tendencies and known hand ranges) Nice hand and nice pot!

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!

If you flop a flush draw you won't know if you have the best flush. Your straight odds are not optimal as they would be with 76s. And if you flop a pair, it will rarely be top pair.

As played, you flop trips, but a flush is possible. You are fist to act, betting is fine, or check-raising. On the turn a flush is possible, but there is so much in the pot, you may be ahead and if not you can still improve to a full house on the river. So, moving all in is fine.

GL and have fun at the tables!
