Great job on passing the quiz, you'll get your 1st bonus within 24 hours.

When you get your bonus please play some 1/2 cent tables 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.

Here is a hand I think I misplayed:



Preflop: I checked at the big blind against one opponent with 55 to see a free flop, this should be correct with a small pair.

Flop: After the flop I'm thinking I have a decent hand so I throw a pot-sized raise. If he calls, he probably has something and I should be careful. If he raises I might even fold. Maybe a 0.03$ raise was better to do this but I felt confident with my hand.

Turn: Wow. He called the flop so he is likely to have a hand and I just completed a full house. I am very likely to have the best hand and not many cards help him in river so I just check and wait for him to raise. He does, and I call after thinking(!) briefly.

River: I'd rather see an A or a K here.. I don't like checking here but I believe my bet was too high. Maybe I should have done a better valuebet to get more money out of him. Maybe 0.20$ was a good bet?

What do you think?

Thanks for posting the hand.

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.



Next Bonus

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!
