ok I think it works .
In the hand above I have A8s which means I can only win with flush for the most time.
But surprisely I have made my straight at turn.
I made a value bet and my opp calls but i haven't even release he is looking forward to another flush drop
And i made a terrible decision at river and pay the price.

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!

In this hand not body made a 3 bet at pre-flop
I made a med pair at flop with the second ticker which would be best unless opps have a Q( I think AT will made a 3 bet at preflop)
I think he was stealing when he made a 1.5BB bet so i give him a re-raise which shock him
at turn is a blank unless for a straight drop
I made a c-bet and won the pot~

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.

Hi Junelover,

Thanks for posting your hand and your thoughts about it!

Preflop your default play should be to raise or fold if it's folded to you. You are in Middle Position and I think KT is strong enough to raise with. This allows you to either win the blinds here and now or more importantly, you will be in charge of the hand if somebody calls as you have shown the most strength. I would raise to 3x the Big Blind, $0.06 in this case.

I like you reasons for raising the villain's bet on the flop. You correctly think that you have the best hand more often than not. You need to protect your hand against flush draws and straight draws so you need to charge him a high price to see these hands, whilst not betting too much in case he does have a queen.

Don't forget that villain could literally have any two cards here as you didn't raise and he checked his option, he could easily have Q2, Q3 or even AQ.

I would raise to between $0.09-$0.12. Your raise size is too small and doesn't achieve much.

The turn is a little scary as KJ just made a straight. However villain might also find this card scary. Therefore I like your bet on the turn. But again, I would make it bigger as your actual sizing gives him the correct implied odds to call with a flush draw.

Well played!
