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.

Best of Luck!

Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.

He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Hi Edward,

Shorthanded, I think your preflop call from the Small Blind is fine, the Cutoff should be opening a lot of hands for a raise.

On the flop I also think calling is the correct decision as there are quite a few good cards that can help you on the turn, e.g. a J, Q or heart. A Ten might also be helpful but also maybe not.

I think your raise on the turn is a bit big and will fold out a lot of villain's hands that he might call a stronger bet with. I think something like $0.30-$0.35 is more likely to get calls from the villain.

However he did call, and now I think there's a good case for going all in on the river. The 5 hasn't changed anything so if he felt his hand was good on the turn, it's probably going to be good on the river, so you might as well squeeze every last bit of value. If you think shoving is too heavy-handed, you should bet much smaller, something like 1/2 - 2/3 pot, or something like $0.60 -$0.70. Your bet size looks scary without extracting the most value when villain calls anyway.

However you did well to extract as much value as you did with such a strong hand, so well played!
