I think it was a good hand for me. I had Qc, Js, and the flop was As, Th, Tc, so a very little possibilities for flash. I was only affraid of Full House. A looking for K on turn or river, and it came on turn. My opponent has Ad 9c.

Actually, this hand is from PokerSchool Open Skill Tournament, from today. I hope it's not a problem that I posted hand from tournament and not from Play Money game...

Now I passed the three steps as you told me.
1) Watched the videos,
2) Posted a hand history, but from the PokerSchool Open Skill Tournament, not a "PLAY MONEY" hand,
3) I passed the quiz, with I think 70% percent, but not sure...

I only hope that you can understand my english, couse its so fluent...

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Sitting on a 15bb stack depth we are just to short to be playing psot flop poker, unless this was a heads table they maybe there might be some room to do so. I'd prefer closing the action by raising all in to squeeze out villain1 and be in a coinflip situation versus villain6. Plus, we can win the pot uncontested by raising all in...meaning they all fold.


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!

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

Best of Luck!

Hello there...
here's my first hand on real money cash game, and I lost it, but I think that I played well.

I had Ah4s, and I choice to pay 0,08$ pre-flop raise to see the flop. In that moment there were two more players. The pot was 0,29$ and the Flop was Qd Ts Ad. So I had top pair and raised 0,26$ to try to force other two players to fold out. One player fold, and the other calls. Turn card was 6h, so my top pair was still strong and I raised for 0,34, again trying to force opponent to fold out, because there were chances to outdraw me with flash or straight. But, opponent calls, so I was a little afraid. River card was Jc, so no flash but only K missing for straight and I don't want to risk any more money so I'd just checked. Opponent also checked. He had a better cards - Qh Ac,so he got two pairs from flop.
Now, as I writing this post, I realized that perhaps I should calls his all-in or more, and maybe he get afraid that I have a straight. I didn't suspect at any time that he had a two pairs on flop, 'cause if I had a top two pairs on flop I would play much more aggressive than him. So, what yours opinion about this hand?

The players may want to make a big bets to put a big pressure on other player or to bluff opponent, or maybe, and I think most commonly to make a big pot and gain value from strong hand. Also, big bet could be used for protecting against strong draws especially on wet board.

So, I answered the question from a video, put a video of one of my hand, and now I'm going to cash game course

Hi,

Hand Analysis


Sitting on a 85bb stack depth in the small blind I'd strongly consider folding this hand when facing a 4x raise. Our hand will often be out kicked by a better range of Ax AK AQ AJ AT etc.. and we'll be at a positional disadvantage post flop. Rarely ever will we feel comfortable playing for stacks with this hand if we make top pair.

Post flop, did you have any reads on villain 5? leading into the pre-flop raiser is only going to get action from better hands on this board texture, every Ax has us beat besides A5 A4 A3 A2...those hands we split with. I would have preferred check calling one street and re-evaluate my course of action on the turn...this is purely for pot control.

Hand Analysis

This isn't really a hand we want to be entering the pot with from early position, several Kx combos have us beat. This is a marginal hand hat will reap mediocre results at full ring. A good rule of thumb when electing to enter the pot is to do so for the standard amount of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper with value hands. Post flop, based on our stack detph we can likely get it all in on the flop or the turn depending on the villain action, if they raise or call any fo those ttwo streets. This isn't really a bad beat, as thye had the better starting hand pre-flop.

Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

Thank you!
I been played PokerSchool Open Skill Tournament every day, and in the past few days I had a lot of bad beats. I hope for more luck this time, and patience also, cause I think I loose focus sometimes, and try to win a hand with 2,7 or 3,9 or something like that.
See ya soon....
