Hi,


Hand Analysis


There is no need to raise this hand so much on our current stack depth, it's not strong enough to be raising over multple limpers for value, this is a marginal holding and will yeild marginal results. We wont be flopping a flush draw often enough for us to frequently play this hand, also our hand has kicker issues.

Post flop, as played we have to go go all in on the flop as the stack to pot ratio is set up perfectly and it'll leverage what fold equity that we have on the draw...that is our best bet at winning the pot.

Hand Analysis



A good rule of thumb when entering a pot, is to make the standard raise szing of 3x the big blind +1bb for each limper, this is to help ensure a pot is built, value is made with our strong starting hand and it'll thin the amount of players involved in the pot! On a stack depth of just over 25bb, this isn't really a hand we want to be entering the pot with from this early of a position. With so many players left to act behind us, it increasese the likelihood of a better range of Kx being dealt live, AK KQ KJ KT etc... all have us outkicked. The times that we do flop top pair with this hand, we'll feel gun shy to bet or call any bets due to our low kicker card.

Post flop, even though a limping range is perceived as a weak range of holdings and give the nature of this being a multiway limp pot, I'd proceed with the course of action of checking for pot control, it's going to be hard to get value form worse holdings and generally when we do get called we are either beat or the villain will have a decent equity share versus our hand.

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!

Hi,


Hand Analysis

Did you have any specific reads on villain 9? This hand facing such a large 3bet and taking into account the villains stack depth, they'll have just over a pot sized bet remaining if we flat their 3bet...there are many hands in which we are going to be in a coin flip situation with AK AQ AJ KQ KJ and let's factor in pocket pairs AA KK QQ JJ TT, plus most board textures will contain atleast over card to our ten's which could make us gun shy to call bets. All this said i'd prefer 4bet jamming all in to either win the pot uncontested or for them to call with AK AQ AJ.

Hand Analsysis

This isn't really a hand we want to be entering the pot with from this position. It is a mediocre hand that will yield marginal results. Post flop, I'd strongly consider either calling the villains lead on the turn or considering out right folding, there are 16 combos of KJ and QT that could be within their range.


Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee

I had big odds to get a flush and I already had the highest pair... so I went all in. I thought he was bluffing at first, but then I was to deep with my bet :S

Hi,

Hand Analysis


Sitting on this stack depth from such an early position this ace with a weaker kicker should be consider part of the bottom of our range. With so many players left to act behind us to act, there is a good chance a better range of Ax that has us outkicked will be live.

Post flop, on this board texture, I'd prefer check calling to try an hit our flush, given the fact that the villain called our 4x raise preflop they could easily have AK AQ AJ AT etc.. if we are to re-open the action we will generally only get action from hands that beat us especially when readless we do not know what we are up against. I'd check call two streets depending on their bet sizing and strongly consider folding on the river.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
