Please advise if it was correct play to just call the re-raise being on the button or should I have shoved?
The flop was scary for me but I knew the player who had me covered to be a bit loose. Please advise a call or a fold is more valuable in the long run



Thanks,

I have completed all the steps including completing the quiz.

Hi Poker458000!

With AA on the button, I get a min-raise and 3 calls. I'm going to 3-bet here and the key is the sizing of it. I will size it between 3X the previous bet (60) and a pot-sized raise (115). With multiple players already in the pot, I tend to go with the upper end of this range, so I will raise to 115.
I then get raised to 220 and called. With the best hand preflop in NLHE, I'm going to re-raise. This time, however, both raise sizes (3X or pot) are over 1/3 of my remaining stack, so making this bet will pot-commit me, so that if I make this bet, I cannot fold. Due to this, I'm shoving.

If I saw the flop (which I would not because my chips would already be in the middle), when the board has a pair of kings and two opps shove, one of them most likely will have a king and have me beat, so I'd have to fold.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

So a Shove preflop after the re-raise is best play. Thanks

Brilliant!

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 complete and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!

Three reasons to bet big.
1. Semi bluffing and getting the villain to fold without contest
2. Get value for my big hands
3. Put pressure on the villain

And I have passed the Cash Game Quiz.

Thanks

Hi Poker 458000!

I like your line in this hand

Preflop you have a good speculative hand in position with several limpers already in the pot. This is a great spot to see the flop cheaply. If you flop a straight draw, flush draw or top pair you will be in good shape. Here you miss the flop. With speculative hands we should normally plan to check-fold missed boards. Don't bluff! You played well by checking. On the turn you now have top pair. Nobody has shown any stregth AND several draws are possible on the board. Betting as you did is definitely best and will be profitable in the long run.

You are rated to have the best hand now. If the villain is chasing a flush as here. He has 9 outs or about 18% chance of making a flush on the river. In other words, you will win more than 80% of the time! Moreover, we want to bet now while the villain still has hopes of making a flush. If you wait until the river to bet, he will only call/raise when he has a flush, and fold when he misses. Therefore, betting on the turn wins you more profit in the long run.

This is a good example of playing a hand well, but still losing. That is a big part of poker. So don't stress it. Your line will be profitable in the long run

GL and have fun at the tables!
