Hi,

Hand Analysis


Sitting on a 100bb stack depth I'd consider folding thi shand pre-flop especially when facing a 5x raise, a call, an all in and another call! There are going to be 16 combos of each of these hands that have us beat Ax AK AQ AJ AT A( and let's factor in premium pocket pairs AA KK QQ JJ TT. You made a grat disciplined fold considering the immediate pot odds you were getting.

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!

Hi,

Hand Analysis




Facing a limp from the villain under the gun, we could certainly raise the standard amount of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper...our hand is strong enough to do so and we have a deep enough stack depth for this to have merit, also if circumstances arise were a villain behind us re-opens the action we can easily just pitch our hand into the muck and save bets for a better spot. Generally a limping range is perceived as a weak range of holdings, so let's exploit this villain as AJ is close to the top of our starting hand range right up there with AK AQ AT AA KK QQ JJ TT 99. Did you have any reads on villain1? When villain1 raises over our limp, we can call or fold (both are fine, with reads or none)...ultimately I'd be basing my course of action on what reads I have of their tendencies from previously played hands.

Post flop, the villains lead on the flop can mean many things, all of which are going to be speculation on my part as no reads were provided. I think the villain could easily be leading inferior Ax combos AT A9 A8 A7 A5 A4 A3 A2 or two card flush combos.. I like that you called, this will help to keep their entire range in the pot going into the turn and considering they'll have just over a pot sized bet remaining we could get them to stack off by jamming all in on the turn (depending on their bet sizing). Nice hand and nice pot.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
