Hello,

Here is my 1st play money hand. I think it went well.



Regarding the Basic poker course I took the quiz few days back and as you probably know I can't take it again if passed already(passed them all already).

Thank you!

Hi,


Hand Analysis

I noticed that you posted your big blind ot of turn, please avoid doing this as it may prove to be costly towards your net winnings. We have a decent price to call and see a flop, but bear in mind to play fit or fold, meaning flop equity to a straight draw or flush draw. If we flop a pair and there are bets ahead of us, just pitch our hand into the muck, save those bets for a value spot.

Post flop, we hit the flop hard we can call down and allow one of the villains behind us to re-open the action, given the nature of this being a multi-way pot 8x may consider raising or a slow played over pair. Nice hand and nice pot! Well played!

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,


Here are my answers

1) 1st here is my hand I would like to show you guys. I want to mention couple hands earlier some guy called my big bets (pot bets) with a flush draw and he hit. After watching the hand you will understand why I've mention this (sorry for my english)



2) The reasons a player make a big bet can be :
a) to build up the pot
b) because he wants to steal the pot
c) he wants to avoid to be outdraw, if the board shows some possible draws, by making the other players fold their hands

3) Regarding the " Cash Game Course" I did pass the quiz few days back

Thank you again for giving me this opportunity.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

As played everything was fine, although I would have preferred to bet the turn about 1/2 pot as there are several combos of Qx that are four flushing to a spade draw that we can get value from. Even though a limping range is a perceived as a weak range of holdings, Qx can certainly be well within one of the villains range, 16 combos for each of these hands AQ KQ JQ Q9 Q8 etc.. Also, please ONLY play 0.01/0.02c 9max NLHE as your Bank Roll Builder Training is focused primarily on this format, playing any other format than 9Max may make you ineligible to receive future bonuses.


Hope this helps

Hello,

I want to by saying thank you for all your help. I have a bad news and a couple of good news as well. The bad news is I lost my bankroll after getting the 3rd chunk of the bonus. Now to get to the good news. I have won my 1st MTT NLHE tournament (it was the bankrollMob of fulltilt) and using the 3 tickets I got from you guys I won as well my 1st single table tournament. However I'm taking terrible bad beats here. I noticed this since I start playing the freerolls. What's really sad it seems to happend every tournament making me to believe it's almost impossible to win here.
Here are some hands I saved for ya.













Yesterday on the PokerSchool Open League tournament lost my pocket Q's verry early in the tournament but somehow managed to recover and get the best result so far in this tournament. However I think I was just lucky to recover and get so deep in the tornament. Here is the hand:





While writing you this and playing another sit ' go this happend:





I lost as well 4 times out of 5 pocket A's (all against russians players) at some point. The time I won it was beacuse nobody called my raise preflop. I need some advise how to get over the endless bad beats and how to avoid them coz last 3 bad beats cost me $5. May not be much but I was wondering if this happend playin bigger games can be very costly. Thanks a lot again for everything!

P.S.: PokerSchool Open league




Sit 'n Go
