Hi apisit205!

With J9s on the button and two limpers in front of me, while I can call behind and hope to see a flop in position, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper (10 chips). Hands are much easier to play postflop with less opps in the pot, so I'd rather raise here and hope that some of them fold.

The flop gives me a flush draw (but I still only have Q high). When it folds to me, if I had raised preflop, then I would make a standard c-bet. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 or more opps, I need to make a pot-sized bet. Due to the fact that the pot was limped preflop, I'm going to check behind here and see a free turn card.

I now have a pair from the turn and if I checked the flop, I will make a standard value bet on the turn (pot-sized bet). Due to betting the flop, I'm going to check behind here on the turn and see a free river card when the opps check to me. I do not want to bet less than a pot-sized bet with this many opps or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me.

The river completes two straight draws and now an opp shoves before me. While I do have two pair, I could easily be beat by a larger two pair, set or straight. Due to this, I'm going to muck my two pair and save my chips for a better situation.

When playing, two things that I want to do is to first off be patient. If I can easily be beat or behind, I need to muck. Secondly, I need my actions to tell a consistent story throughout the hand. If my bets don't tell a consistent story, then observant opps will pick up on this and if they do so, I'm basically turning my cards face-up to them... something that I want to avoid.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

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!

3 reasons why players make a big bet :
1. to make a pot big if his hand are good. (value bet)
2. to put a lot of pressure on other player.
3. to bluff players out of decent hand.



I saw that this player is a loose player so I protect my blind with c-bet.

Hi,


Hand Analysis

This is a mediocre hand that will yeild marginal results. On this stack depth we really do not have that much room to maneuver post flop and we'll be at a positional disadvantage which will make for a difficult decision making. I'd prefer folding this hand pre-flop.

As played post flop, we have minimal equity on the flop and on the turn, I understand that most button opening ranges are loose and may have not connected with this board, but we would need really specific reads to reverse float their continuation bet with the intentions of check raise bluffing.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi apisit205,


At Bronze and Chrome VIP levels 1VPP is equal to 1 FPP. As you move up the VIP levels there is a multiplier applied that increases the number of FPPs earned per VPP. For example SilverStars earn 1.5x VPP in FPPs. Gold is 2 x, and so on. Hope this helps.
