Well done Hatrium!

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!

Great job Hatrium!

You passed the Cash Game Quiz and so you've shown that you have a great understanding of the fundamentals of playing poker. We have now credited your account with your 2nd bonus.

Step Three

Please play a 1/2 cent Real Money table at PokerStars and, using the Hand Replayer, post a hand here in this thread that you have questions about.

Here is a video on how to use the hand replayer.



NB: You must post a Cash Game hand only, tournament hands do not count for this promotion. You must use the Hand Replayer only to post your hand, we cannot accept hands posted in any other way.

Once you post your hand one of our Trainers will analyse it for you so please post an interesting hand where you have questions. Give as much information about the hand as possible, for example, had you any reads on your opponents?

Just a heads up, I entered a table full of tight players, and they aren't very aggressive. I saw about 20 hands so far. They usually fold preflop or on the flop. I'm also one of the shortest stacks of the table with about 80 BBs, but since pots rarely get big, it didn't really matter.

I'm in the cutoff seat, and two players before me decide to limp in. Holding AJo, I decided to limp in as well. I'm just wondering if raising to 10c was a good idea? Considering these players usually don't even limp in, I figured they would call anyways and I would most likely miss the flop.

The flop was interesting however. There's 6 players in the hand, and 3 diamonds show up. I need one more for a flush. Everyone checks to me, and I check as well. Should I have raised here? I was thinking someone might be slowrolling a monster hand and I wouldn't know what to do against a re-raise.

faulhaberXIX, on the button, however, decides to bet. Everyone folds to me, so its heads up now. No one was slowrolling after all. I was thinking that she was trying to steal the pot again. It's not the first time she attempted to steal with no hand when everyone checked. So I call to see what she'd do on the turn.

Turn comes, I make my flush. I check anyways to see if she actually has a hand or not. She checks as well, so I'm confident that I'm ahead and that she was simply trying to steal again.

I bet on the river and she folds.

So I was wondering if I made the right moves here? What's the best strategy to use when there are many players in a hand with a possible made flush on the flop?

Thanks!

Hi Hatrium,

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 normally within the next 24 hours (but can sometimes take a little longer, especially at weekends) and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

Hi Hatrium,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

Yes, I think raising here to 0.10 would be much better than limping behind and that's because we can get value from worse hands and be able to cbet alot of flops and get our opponents to fold their small PPs instead of having to play fit or fold. As played, I like your line in this multiway pot
