Hi,

I think you overvalued your hand here. While JT is a fairly strong hand, there are many better hands so don't get too attached to it!

Preflop I would just call the raise and try to see a cheap flop. Your 3Bet to 50 won't really discourage people from calling too much and you are just making a big pot with a vulnerable hand and you're going to be out of position against most of your opponents.

You flop 2nd pair. I think that going for a Continuation Bet is normally a good aggressive play to make, however the chances of one of your many opponents having an A is quite high and you are just building up the pot when your hand is unlikely to be best. I would just check and see what happens.

On the turn your hand gets even worse as another overcard appears. However you do pick up a straight draw. Now you're in position against the only opponent remaining, I would just check and see a free river and hope to hit the straight.

I like just checking the river and giving up. Rather surprisingly you have the best hand and win the very large side pot, although the very short stacked villain takes the smaller main pot.

When you're in a hand with many players, proceed very cautiously unless you have a very strong hand.

Please Note: Due to the holiday period please allow extra time for your Bankroll Builder reply from the Team

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 skevanton59!

You played this hand well

AJs is a good hand to open with and your betsize was good. The flop is not too good for you, but you can improve if you get a 10 and perhaps and A or J. Since we do have a chance to improve, but don't yet have a made hand, you could check the flop rather than c-betting. This avoids getting raised as happened here. C-betting as you did is fine though.

When you get raised on the flop, a read on the villain would help us determine what to do. If the villain rarely plays hands or rarely raises, then he presumably has a strong hand. Therefore we should fold. If he is a maniac, then calling can be ok. You called, but did not improve on the turn or river. Folding to the large river bet was the only good choice. Good fold

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi,

Hand Analysis


This hand is considered the top of our starting hand range and we'll have a positional advantage versus the villains post flop as we are on the button, a good rule of thumb when electing to re-raise a villain pre-flop is to make a sizing of 3x their raise... this is to help ensure value is made from a weaker range of holdings and it'll help give us the intiative in the pot!

Post flop, I'd prefer calling all three streets... this is to keep the villain entire range in the pot betting into us, if we are to raise on any given street we may fold some hands that have showdown value that otherwise would have tried to bluff us out of the pot, hands like QJ KQ QT JJ TT 99 KK.


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee
