Hi Roden17!

A8o is a weak and deceivingly dangerous hand to play. From early position you should fold this every time. You won't get a board like this one often enough to make it profitable. Notice with A8o you won't be flopping a flush draw, nor a straight draw. Moreover, if you flop an A, you run a very real risk of losing a big pot to a better ace.

Secondly, anytime you are the first to enter the pot preflop, always do so with a raise regardless of your cards. Limping marginal hands and betting with strong hands makes it easy to outplay you.

As played, you get a great flop. At playmoney and 2NL, the biggest mistake players make is that they call to often with marginal holdings. This makes playing straight forward the best strategy. In other words, don't bluff because villains won't fold. And the converse is true, when you have a strong hand as here, bet every change you get. Here I suggest making a 50% pot sized bet on the flop rather than check-raising. You can't be sure the players behind will bet. The same on the turn, make another 50% pot bet.

As played on the river, you want to get called. Your bet is too big. There are very few spots where overbetting the pot is the best line. On the river I would bet half the pot again as this will likely get called.

Betting about half the pot (on any street) is the sweet spot for maximizing your value. It is big enough to build the pot, but not so big that everyone folds

GL and have fun at the tables!

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!

Hi,


Hand Analysis


Sitting on a 175bb stack we could elect to flat call from the blinds, our hand wont be in to bad of shape versus a loose button range. As played on the flop you did fine, check raising could get value from 8x Tx and some inside straight combos, but it could also fold out all of their high card combos which will mostly consist of their range whether it be Qx Kx Ax... As for the turn card, I'd elect to check raise a minimum of 3x their bet sizing ideally more, this is to help build the stack to pot ratio for the river and get value from most of their Ax combos that completed to a pair and back door draws. On the river we would need really specific reads to consider check calling this river, so many different combos have us beat...readless I'd consider folding.

Hope this helps.
Please note that the Bank Roll Builder promotion is focused primarily on 0.01/0.02c 9Max NLHE, playing any other format other than 9Max NLHE with your next bonus could make you ineligible for this promotion..

Kind regards,
CannonLee

It's a tough quiz alright, but rest assured that all of the answers are in the course content. Keep trying, you'll get there
