Brilliant!
You've passed the basic test and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

Step Two

The Poker Basics test was easy right? Well, there's a lot more to learn on the road to becoming a profitable poker player. Now study the Cash Game course and once you think you have it mastered 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.

Let us know as soon as you have passed the Cash Game Quiz and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Hi,

Both hands were played against the same players

to big reraise on the turn ?
1.


Second hand was a " disaster" theres not much to say, initial raiser played a bit tight and the
guy who limped was passive loose player ( he was mostly limping withh all kind of hands )

2.

Thank you for posting these hands for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at them for you.
He will do this within the next 24 hours and once they've been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Cheers

Hi mzpok,

I prefer folding preflop here. 66 is a great speculative hand, but we will only flop a set 1 in 8 attempts. The other 7 times we are probably folding on the flop against the strong range of the utg raiser. Here the utg raiser is very short stacked. This means we can\t win enough from him to make calling profitable. Had he had a normal 100bb stack, then I love calling in this spot.

As played, checking the dry flop is good as the players after you may bet. On the turn, I would just raise the shortstack all in. Keep it simple. Had he been deepstacked, I would go for a standard 2bet of about 2.5 x the original raise.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Hi again mzpok!

I would just check the flop here. You have a strong starting hand, but it is not a made hand. You completely miss this flop and are facing two oppoents. Betting the flop will not get them both to fold that often. I would check/fold the remaining streets unless you improve.

As played, big river bets like this are usually strong hands. Don\t pay off here. Folding as you did is the best choice. Good fold
