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.

Best of Luck!

I had this great hand in the small blind, did I make the correct move jamming my hand at the turn, knowing the Dealer is a tight player? The first raiser usually plays suited cards, while the player to my right raises with big pairs and high suited connectors very much like myself.

Since my three-bet represented a big hand, I thought it would be a great play to check-raise all-in with my position. Since I checked the flop and turn, I would be inducing the Dealer to bet with their hand, while I checked-raised all-in to look like I set up a trap.

A few factors helped make the decision to check-raise. The Dealer calls my three-bet and checks on the flop as well, indicating they likely have a weak head (my guess is K-Q suited or a big pocket pair like Jacks)

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 CardsVeteran,

This is indeed a tough spot Since we are unlikely to be 4bet bluffing in this spot I think we can get away by raising bigger preflop. When we 4bet we are planning to get the rest of the money in. It's a bit of an ugly spot when they flat call our 4bet because we are OOP and their range is either weak PPs, Ax or very strong slow played hands. The reason why I don't like the turn x/r is that if they have JJ or KQ like you said then they are folding anyways so we end up folding out hands that we beat and they will always call with better .. well except KK.. but that turn line turns our hand into a bluff and I doubt we will get them to fold any Ace. Flop I think I prefer a small cbet because we are OOP and I hate to be bluffed on later streets. When we bet the flop we kind of force our opponent to play face up because of the pot size in which case if they do call with some PP then they might allow us to check down instead of us checking and allowing our opponent to bluff instead.

Thank you for the response George, the reason why I basically minimum raised Queens is because of a few other different factors. It is very hard to get action in a hand, so betting something like 64 cents could have made the tight player fold (if he was bluffing the Dealer position) and I would have won a far smaller pot. By playing the Queens as I did, I managed to earn a significantly larger pot and represent a trap, while keeping my hand hidden.

I do agree that I should have raised more so it would have pressured the opponent to think about their hand, or C-bet on the flop. Normally I play Tight-Aggressive or Tight-Passive, and I have shown slow-playing to the table in the past, so I thought that mixing up my play at that moment would produce a great result.

I will be attending The Cash Clash at Saturday, March 1st, 2014 @ 14:00-15:30 ET. Playing and learning from the community seems like the best option to take after this promotion
