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.

Done; maybe not my best hand but...


I chosed not to rise post flop because i was afraid of losing him and not getting more value; that happened before at that table. I made a check rise and one rise at the end trying to make it look like a bluff and get more value. Didn`t worked )
Please give me some advices.

Hi FlashPunct!

Firstly, please try to play on tables where all the seats are filled. It will make it easier for you to learn. With so few players as here, you will be forced to play a wider range of hands which in turn will make postflop play more difficult. From the Holdem Lobby on Pokerstars, you can adjust the Filter to only show tables with 8 players. That way when you sit down, the table will be at a full 9 players. That is what I do

Let's look at the hand. Anytime you are the first to open the pot preflop, always do so with a raise, regardless your cards. Raising can win the pot preflop with your weaker hands and it builds the pot with your stronger hands. At 2nl, the best way to win big pots is to bet/raise every chance you get with your strong made hands. Also, even though AA is the best starting hand, it is just a pair. By letting the big blind see the flop for free, you might flop an unexpected two pair or something and stack your aces. By raising, it will be easier for you to put him on a range of hands.

This is a good, but dangerous flop for you. Again, we don't want to give the villain a chance to check behind. Just keep it simple and lead out with a bet.

On the turn you want to bet again, about 70% of the pot. If the villain is chasing a draw, he will pay to see the river, but will not call a river bet all the times he misses. Also, if he does have a straight draw, we want to protect our hand by giving him bad odds to continue.

As played, betting on the river is good, but your bet is a bit large. It won't get called often enough by hands you are beating to be profitable. I would suggest betting about half the pot.

Remember, in order to win a big pot with our strong hands, we need to build the pot. Don't get fancy, just build the pot yourself by betting

GL and have fun at the tables!
