Hello everyone,so I'm going to start my own bankroll builder! I played poker about 2years,I quite know the basics and I would call myself as a underdog poker player. The problem is I never took it seriously,never had a bankroll and if I played poker it was just one-timing deals. So now I'm going for it. I will start to build my bankroll,hopefully pokerstars will lend a hand with it.

MY GOALS:

- the main goal is to reach 250$. First step:50$.
- as I consider myself as a tournament player my plan is to start from 10-25cents MTT and go to 0.5-1.5$ MTT when I succeed.
- I'm about to spend some time on learning new things about poker:I just downloaded some online pokerbooks and have bought(long time ago)Daniels Negreanu "Hold'em Wisdom for all Players" so I;m willing to red it. Also I'll watch the poker lessons,video training and etc. from your website.

SO hopefully,you'll confirm my approve my thread and if so,maybe one day will meet at the poker table!

Hello,as you mentioned I had problems to find this Thread,sorry for taking so long.

So,where should I begin:

First,I watched the video as you asked.
Second,I passed the basic course! (peace of cake)
Third is the hand. So here it is.



In that hand we were like 6-7,maybe that was my problem.

My question is:What would be the perfect play of this hand? Should I bet pre-flop? (They were very aggresive,I was afraid that they would reraise me and I dont know what to do) Or should I check the flop and just fold to the raise?

The other thing I faced when I lost all-in with AK vs J4. After that it was hard to contentrate and wait for other opportunities when I lost against such a bad hand. Is ther any advices whats should I do after big loses like this?

Looking forward to receiving your comments,
Laisvis (vazzir)

Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.

He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Cheers.

Hi,


Hand Analysis


Sitting on a stack depth of just over 50bb we can certainly call and see a flop...there is no need to raise and isolate ourself versus a better range of holdings while being at a positional disadvantage...Plus our immediate pot odds are really good.

Post flop, taking the lead into all of these villains shows strength...it can be done for thin value and protection for what scary turn card may come. Although, when the action gets re-opend by several villains, I'd be keen to fold...given the nature of this being a multiway pot there are several hands that have us beat...such as Tx A9 K9 Q9 J9 and let's factor in premium pocket pairs AA KK QQ JJ TT.

As for losing big a big pot to an inferior hand, do not let it discourage you...if you played the hand optimally taking board texture and player dynamic into consideration, it should put a smile on our face...easier said than done...but we ultimately got the villain to make a mistake and that is what poker is all about (making money off villains mistakes...whether it be bad starting hand selection, calling down with improper pot odds etc...) If you feel that you are not able to focus and stay on top of your A game, then sit out and take a short 10min break to regain your composure. Beats happen to everyone in poker...but what separates solid disciplined players from the rest is that they are able to cope with bad beats and shrug it off. Pondering on a beat can adversely affect your overall play and possibly session bottom line...


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!

Hello again,

Thank you so much for advices you gave me. I hope it will help me. Okey,so
lets continue our journey.

1.I watched bet sizing it was really useful and helped me a lot.
2.I passed the cash quiz as you asked.
3. As always,the hand. This hand will be a bit crazy so listen up. Vilain 3 is very
aggresive,playing everyhand. and the thing is he won last hand from Vilain 8 who post some messages about how lucky Vilain 3 is. So my opinion was that Vilain 8 is steaming and Vilain 3 knows that. Here I come with 3bet and taking the pot.



Is that was right thinking? Is that was a good bet considering my stack? Should I make moves like this?


So as I said thanks for assistance and investment in me,
Waiting for your comments,

Laisvis (Vazzir)

Hi,

Hand Analysis



Sitting on such a short stack depth this isn't really a hand that I want to be entering the pot with, there are going to be many combos of Qx that have us outkicked and we wont be flopping a flush draw often enough with it for it to show any profit. Post flop, taking card removal into account from the villains range we can discount Jx from their range and even though we have no blockers, we can leverage our stack depth by raising all in considering that we'll have just over a pot sized bet remaining if we elected to call. This is an audacious play and should only be used versus VERY specific player dynamics, generally there is no need to make such brave bluffs at 2nl ... just focusing on value betting strong starting hands will most certainly net you the most profit!

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
