Hi,

Hand Analysis

The villain is sitting on about 10bb and it would be safe to say that their limp is indicative of weakness, we could easily raise all in to win the pot uncontested pre-flop. A low pocket pair like this on such stack depths will prove to be much more profitable playing for stacks pre-flop...as most board textures will contain over cards leading us to feel gun shy to bet for value or call bets!

Post flop, even though we are getting decent pot odds to call down, the board does contian two over cards and a limping range is perceived as a weak range consider it a wide range...which could effectively mean they have connected with this board...I'd bet fold as we'll generally only get called or raised by hands that beat us!

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!

Please watch the following video and answer the question below.



List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Sitting on such a short stack depth facing multiple limpers I'd strongly consider folding this hand. Even though a limping range is perceived as a weak range of holdings, there are still severall hands that have us outkicked AT KT QT JT.

Post flop, a good rule of thumb when electing to bet is to make a sizing of 2/3 to 3/4 pot size, anything less than these amounts will properly price in mediocre holdings that the villains may have. On the flop and turn there are several drawing hands that we can get value from Q9 Q9 97 etc. and stray flush draw combos. As played on the river, I would have checked back, raising will only get action from hands that beat us, unless we had reads that dictate otherwise.

Hand Analysis

Facing an early position open I'd fold this hand pre-flop. There are many villains still behind us left to act and an early position starting hand range is usually weighted towards strong holdings AK AQ AJ AT A9 AA KK QQ JJ TT 99 all of which have a great equity share in the pot versus our hand.

Post flop, due to having kicker issues, I'd take a pot control line by just calling down, there are only seven Ax that we split with A2 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 A9 and every other Ax AK AQ AJ AT A3 beat us...there are going ot be more combos of strong Ax combos in the villains opening range from early position than weak Ax.

Hand Analysis

This hand I'd fold pre-flop on such a short stack depth we have no post flop manueverabilty and with so many players left to act behind us it increases the likelihood of a better range of Qx being dealt and let's factor in Kx and Ax to. Post flop, folding on the flop is the best course of action, our equity is minimal and it would be best to save bets for a better spot to play for our stack pre-flop.


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
