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.

Thanks again, HokyPokyToo.

I've read all the articles in the Cash Game Course and passed the Cash Game Quiz on the 3rd of August, 2014. It was quite tricky indeed, but the course helps a lot!

Hey HokyPokyToo,

here is my hand:



I'm playing a speculative hand from an early position, . Not a very tight play, but I decide to call pre-flop. The flop is kind of promising, I have a straight draw and I want to play my hand aggresively so I'm betting here. Villain_6 calls and the turn is a .

This is the moment I am not convinced by my actions. I hit a pair, but I'm suspecting my opponent of having cards like or so I check to see what will my opponent do. He bets and I call to see the river which is a . That doesn't change anything, I check again, my opponent bets a little less than half of the pot, I just call here. He shows the bluff, , and I win.

Should I play my cards from the early position? Were my actions correct on the turn and on the river? Was it possible to force my opponent to put more money in the pot by playing more aggresively?

Great!


We now have credited your account with your 3rd bonus and You're doing a fantastic job so far!

Now take some time and using the information you've learned so far evaluate this hand and ask yourself the following questions:

1. Was my starting hand good enough to play from this position?

2. Did I evaluate the strength of my hand postflop?

3. Was my bet-sizing correct?

When at PokerSchoolOnline you are welcome post many hands for discussion in our Hand Review Forum and we encourage you to do so. Here's a video to help you understand Cash Game poker better.



You've still got one bonus to receive.


Step Four


Attend any LIVE TRAINING session here at PokerSchoolOnline. You must actually attend the session to get your bonus.

Please let us know what Live Training session you have attended. NB It must be a live training session that takes place after this post was posted. Past live training sessions do not count.

Let us know the Date/Time and Title of the session you attend and we will check your attendance and credit you with your final bonus. If you make a deposit at this stage you will also receive your final bonus.
