I want to ask about something just to make sure. Recently I finished in the money playing in a freeroll tournament (after I made created this thread). Does this affect my chances of being eligible for Bankroll Builder? Do I necessarily need to start from $0?

regards.

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!

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

In this hand, I opened the pot from a late postion for 3x BB with 10-8 suited. The BB, a rather straightforward player, called. The flop came [6h Td Ac]. The BB checked. I flopped a middle pair and backdoor hearts. Thought about betting but decided to check wanting to keep the pot small. The turn came 9d, giving me the gutshot to go with my pair. The BB checked, I bet $0.08. The BB called and the river came [7d]. The BB immediately fired a pot sized bet. Now, this got me really confused. The quickness and size of his bet looked bluffish to me so I decided to call with my straight. I lost a decent pot (at least by microstakes standards) as a result.

I do think I actually should have bet the flop, trying to represent the ace. After the BB picked up a flush draw he would've called any bet. I don't think it was a bad decision to open the pot with a suited connector.

Hi ADWish!

Thanks for writing up your thoughts! That helps me to help you

Opening on the btn with 108s is fine and your betsize was perfect. On the A high flop, the villain has already shown weakness twice, both by just calling preflop and by checking the flop. So, this is a great spot to c-bet as you said. It is more likely that you, the aggressor, has an ace. This will often win the pot now which is fine since your middle pair hand isnt super strong. If you get called though, you can still improve on later streets and will be ahead quite often as well.

As played, betting the turn with the pair and a draw is fine. The villain seems weak. Now when a flush becomes possible on the river AND the villain suddenly gets aggressive making a pot sized bet, we can be very sure he has a strong hand. Folding would be best.

It is important to notice (and make notes on) this type of player as they are very common at 2NL. They are tight-passive players. Basically they never get aggressive unless they have a strong hand. If they call pre, call the flop then bet or raise on the turn or river, you can be sure they have at least two pair. This lets you fold many hands. The opposite is also true. If they are just calling, you can be fairly confident that they don't have a real strong hand and can more safely bet yourself.

GL and have fun at the tables!
