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.

Hi royalraise,

here is hand:

My comments (I'll post it again by text form from pokertracker) will be directly on streets:

PokerStars - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 9 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

BTN: 100 BB (VPIP: 46.61, PFR: 1.69, 3Bet Preflop: 2.35, Hands: 118)
SB: 109.5 BB (VPIP: 20.00, PFR: 20.00, 3Bet Preflop: 40.00, Hands: 10)
BB: 118 BB (VPIP: 11.11, PFR: 11.11, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 9)
UTG: 202.5 BB (VPIP: 10.53, PFR: 10.53, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 38)
UTG+1: 105 BB (VPIP: 7.41, PFR: 7.41, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 27)
MP: 185 BB (VPIP: 31.58, PFR: 13.16, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 38)
MP+1: 130.5 BB (VPIP: 13.33, PFR: 10.00, 3Bet Preflop: 8.33, Hands: 30)
MP+2: 103.5 BB (VPIP: 22.22, PFR: 3.70, 3Bet Preflop: 11.11, Hands: 27)
Hero (CO): 63 BB

SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:heart: K:diamond:

As you can see on stats, button is an agrofish who plays very wide range and usually folds on cbet on flop. My hand is in standard opening range, standard sizing from cutoff (3BB). Villain decided to 3-bet. His range (it is an aggro fish) can be JJ+, AK, AQs, was it a good call????

fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, BTN raises to 13 BB, fold, fold, Hero calls 10 BB

Flop: (27.5 BB, 2 players) Q:club: 9:heart: 9:club:
Hero bets 8.5 BB, BTN raises to 28.5 BB, Hero calls 20 BB

Here I probably do an error, with his top pocket pairs I had to be second, with his AQ also the same, I've beat him only with his AK and JJ which he can have. So I decided to donkbet and got raise. EASY FOLD!! but, I IDIOT called OK, called and pot commited. On blank turn I must shove.

Turn: (84.5 BB, 2 players) 6:spade:
Hero bets 21.5 BB and is all-in, BTN calls 21.5 BB

River: (127.5 BB, 2 players) 7:spade:

Villain shows top of his range, the rockets. My stack gets off by my shitmind

Hero shows Q:heart: K:diamond: (Two Pair, Queens and Nines) (Pre 13%, Flop 10%, Turn 5%)
BTN shows A:diamond: A:spade: (Two Pair, Aces and Nines) (Pre 87%, Flop 90%, Turn 95%)
BTN wins 123 BB

So, I guess that this is example of HOW it DONT PLAY, if anyone gets some upmind from it and can rescue his stack in similar spot, I will be pleased

Great, thanks for posting these hands!

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!
