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.

Great Job!


You passed the Cash Game Quiz and know you've shown that you have a great understanding of the fundementals 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.

I won the hand but not sure if I made several errors
I had joined the table in the last few hands and had no information on the other players.

1) Should I have bet rather than just calling pre-flop?
2) Should I have raised on the turn?

I'm not sure about 1, but I think raising on the turn was the right move as I had some showdown value with top pair/potential flush but I didn't want to just call and let one of the others hit a higher card.

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.

Hi my thoughts (for what they are worth!) are pre-flop I think you made the right play, you want to keep bluffing to a minimum preflop at 2nl and you have a speculative hand which you want to hit a good flop with and hopefully take some chips so more players in the pot are better.

Turn I'm not sure about the semi bluff you have top pair, and if you hit your flush with them in the pot you may make more. The cash course said to only semi bluff strong draws and i'm not sure it is a strong draw by the time you get to the turn anymore. So I would have called the turn, but it's an interesting spot I think.
