Hi,


Hand Analysis


Sitting on this stack depth of 100bb this isn't really a hand that we want to be entering the pot with, there are several combos of Tx that have us out kicked AT KT QT JT T9 T8 etc.. and let's also factor in pocket pairs AA KK QQ JJ TT... this hand should be considered the bottom of our starting hand range as it's marginal and will yield marginal results.

Post flop I would have folded to any flop bets made, we have minimal outs to improve which makes our overall equity versus a range of straight combos and Jx an incredibly percentage. As played on the turn, given the nature of this being a multiway pot, we have to be careful of a straight being present, for instance there are 16 combos of all these hands KQ Q8 78, that is alot of hands that beat us and we haven't even included the Tx combos that have us outkicked or have filled up to a full house. I'd strongly consider folding as the relevant hand strength to most board textures is weughted towards the best possible nuts (best made hand) especially in a multi way pot.


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!

Player may want to bet big to gain value for his hand, bluff or protect his hand from potential draws.

Hi,

Hand Analysis

Sitting on a 15bb stack depth at a fixed limit hold'em table on a short handed table, we can expect our hand to be ahead most of the villains range, rarely will we run into a better pocket pair. Post flop, specifically on the flop .. I'd prefer calling down to keep the villains entire bluffing range in the pot as there is a draw present and they can be leading with most of their high card combos that bricked, after all this can be considered a dry board. A good rule of thumb is that most leading ranges are weighted towards draws and weak holdings that would otherwise bet to try and get a better hand to fold (bluff) We have showdown value and all we will need is 10 to 1 pot odds to be breaking even in the long run. Well played, just unfortunate the villain out flopped us with 42o.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

Hi,

Please note, any VPPs that were earned prior to the release of your second bonus do not count towards the third bonus. When you have accrued the necessary amount of VPPs your third bonus will be automatically credited to your PokerStars cashier. Please post a hand replay of a situation that you found to be difficult or one of an opponent that won a big pot from you, it's hard to give a concrete answer without specifics regarding what you think your own tendencies are, please provide them and I'll help you out.


Best regards,
CannonLee
