Well done IamAristotle (and sorry for getting your name wrong last time - whoops)!

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!

Lost the bank roll!! - Sat Apr 12, 2014, 05:29 PM

Hi,

After reading few lessons from 'cash game', I started playing 0.01/0.02 NLH. After some calls and fold my stack became around 1.3$. Then one hand I called with 9sTs. The flop came 10c9c3. I was first to act. Considering that there was a player with greater stack in front of me, I shoved. He called and he had pocket 3s. I lost the whole bankroll.

What should I have done?

Hi,

I have passed the 'Cash Game' quiz with 91%. Maybe I did an 'outs' question wrong. What should I do now?

Also, if I get deposited 2$, how much should I buy-in with. According to bankroll management, I shouldn't be playing any stakes until I have 40$(I consider myself a serious player...). According to cash game lessons, it's best to take 100BB onto the table.

In other words what is the best way to build the bankroll??

Great job IamAristotle!

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?

And I'll have a hand analyser address your questions in your previous posts.

If I want to bet a flop, I'm going to make a standard bet, which is based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. If there was only one opp in the pot, I'll make a standard bet of 1/2 pot. The same for the turn.

Unfortunately, flopping top 2 pair can be one of the most frustrating ones, as it's easy to go broke if someone hits a set, straight, flush or higher 2 pair.

For building a bankroll, I'm going to play the lowest stakes available. however, if I'm below the recommended bankroll requirements, I need to understand that I can bust my bankroll very easily. All that it will take is a couple cooler hands (or misplays) to do so.

When playing a cash table, I'm always buying in for the table maximum if at all possible.

The player I'm involved with is a very loose player. He can almost have any hand.

I put him on A8/A3/38 because I was in early position and had just limped and he was in late position.

The opponent is a tight player as per my read.
He always raised to 4BB when he had a real hand.
Otherwise he would just limp. This was the first time he raised to 5BB.

Should I have called? or did I do fine?

Note: The reason I limped with just TQ is that all the other players were folding most of the time. And I was called, I would see the flop and decide as I can put the people of this table on a read.
If I were to raise, then I would be loosing chips for sure.

Is checking on the turn OK? - Sun Apr 13, 2014, 04:57 PM

After the flop, he called me. And then on the turn checked back.

Finally on the river I was sure he just floated on the flop with either 2 face cards

or

he was just trying to bluff me out pre-flop as I had a very tight image on the table
But he called the flop because I couldn't possibly have a pair or maybe because he had a straight draw.

Should I have bet again on the turn out of position? or is it OK to gain info. by checking and seeing the reaction?

I made everybody in the table know that I bet half pot with top pair.
Now in this hand, I put him on a pair on flop. Then from the turn onwards I bet half the pot pretending to have a Jack.

Should I have 3/4th pot on river to put him in pressure?

I assumed that he had not straight or straight draws after he bet that much on the flop.
And as nobody had seen me with cards as low as 6/7/3 I assumed he thought I had a club draw.

Should I hav slowplayed my hand?

Betting and calling made me think that one of them had a set/open-ender/two-pair.

So I had the risk of the board pairing up or a king falling the board.

I was playing passively as he was giving me good enough odds each time, but on the turn I made a moster draw. So I raised and he called. This tells me that he himself was on a draw or had the 3 pair or 10 pair. On river he checked, so I bet aggressively as I could have had a Jack or better pockets.

Is this fine or should I consider that he was slowplaying a set and was trying to check-raise me?
