Interesting...
I have been playing quite a bit lately and don't have any credit cards to be able to play for any kind of real cash. I play a few cash games in my home town but would like to start playing some online. I mostly want to get in on this promotion for the training. i read a lot of the courses that are on here and have only took one test so far. So I would like to take part in the Bankroll Builder Promotion.
Cheers

I watched the video, I passed the test, this is the hand. 2,3 hearts in the small blind. Was that an automatic fold? Decent call for how many players were already in the pot? Good bet on the turn? Should i have folded to the raise on the river? Thanks for the feedback in advance.

Hi CSQRD13!

Sorry for the delay Yeah, 23s is a suited connector, but it is really low. Plus, being in the small blind you will be out of positon all hand. Folding preflop would be best. The reason is that with suited connectors we are hoping to make a flush or straight. You will be on the bottom end of a straight and the lowest flush if you hit either. Thus, you will never be able to bet with confidence.

As played, betting half the pot on the turn with two pair is fine. On the river I suggest checking rather than betting. Depending on the villain you can hope to check down the hand or perhaps check-call a small bet. I would fold to a larger bet though.

GL and have fun at the tables!

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!

reasons players would want to make a big bet:
1) to put a lot of pressure on opponents
2) to protect against strong draws
3) to gain value for very strong hands

Hi,

Hand Analysis




Sitting on such a short stack depth of 25bb I would have elected to raise the standard amount of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper. Raising anything more than the standard amount will generate more folds than we would like to see from a weaker range of holdings. We want to get the villain ('s) to call with pretty much any two cards, our value will mostly be made post flop were the villains can connect with the board or spite call with high card combos... unless of course the action gets re-opened behind us to which we have to happily call off our stack with the best starting hand in no limit hold'em.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi,



Hand Analysis


Sitting on such a deep stack depth, we can certainly enter the pot for a raise. Limping in only allows more players to enter the pot with speculative hands which ultimately makes ou decision making much tougher post flop. Keep in mind though, there are still several players left to act behind us which in turn increases the liklihood of a better range of Ax being present AK AQ AJ and let's also factor in pocket pairs AA KK QQ JJ TT. I'd proceed with caution and be wary of the villains that elect to re-raise me, my course of action will entirely depend on the reads that I have on them...

Post flop, given that the villain had nearly 250bb to start the hand, they will most likely not be entering the pot with speculative hands from the small blind...especailly for a raise. We can't really raise post flop, as there aren't many worse hands that we can expect to get value from, the times we do raise we will generally only get called by better when readless. If we had reads on villain9 we may have been able to find a fold on the river.. Remember that relative hand strength to most board textures is usually weighted towards the nuts.


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi,

Hand Analysis


Sitting on just over 50bb we could maybe get away with just folding this hand pre-flop when the villain 3bet, plus 3bet ranges tend to be much tighter at full ring compared to short handed poker...usually nut hands AK AQ AJs ATs 99 TT JJ QQ KK AA. With so many players left behind to act (8 total) it increases the liklihood of a better range of Qx being dealt AQ KQ QJ all have us out kicked and will most certainly consist of a 3bet range from one of the villains...let's also factor in AA KK QQ JJ TT too.

Post flop, it's hard to know if we are ahead of the villain without reads...but there are not going to be many hands that we beat on this board that consist of a tight 3bet range, if we are to check raise we will only get action from hands that beat us. I may have just check called one street to re-evaluate my course of action on the turn and fold to any bets made on a diamond card or over card.

There is a saying in no limit hold'em "most post flop mistakes are made pre-flop"... meaning not taking starting hand selection and position into consideration. I'm not saying that is a bad hand, I love suited hands..however it would best be opened from a later position or flat called in a single raised pot when we have position.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
