                Hi Pinku I think you are right to conclude that the T6 hand was played much more effectively when compared to the A7 hand. Even though we did not get all-in action on our top two pair in the T6 hand we still won the pot, and were very likely to have the best of it were someone willing to go all-in with us. The A7 hand is a great example of when not to slowplay. Let's take a look at a few of the things going on: - Multiway flop: there were 6 players to the flop, usually the more opponents, the less sense (and more dangerous!) slowplaying can be. - Vulnerable hand: There are straight draws, flush draws, and plenty of made hands out there that can pass us on the turn. Any K,Q,J,T,9,8,6,5 or club turn could be the end of us, when put in context of all the possible holdings our opponents can have. That's a lot of cards! Usually a better place to slowplay is when we flop an invulnerable hand in a heads-up context. So say we raise UTG and the BB calls. If we have QQ and the flop comes Q22, this would be the ideal spot to slowplay, when compared to A97 6-way. It is worth considering all the possible hands we could have gotten a bet from, should we have bet A7 in position. I am thinking of hands like 97, AJ, JT, club draws, and even weaker hands than those. We definitely want to build a pot with these hands. The turn was quite bad for us, as it happens, and our kicker was counterfeighted. But I think you already know how things went wrong after that umbup:

                          Great, you've done everything that's been asked so far and you've already passed the Poker Basic Quiz, well done! umbup: As a result you've earned your first $2 from the promotion. Next up please attend one of the 'Bet Sizing' live training sessions and ask plenty of questions such as 'what should be the correct bet size to enter the pot? what are good starting hands etc. Think about these 3 basic's before deciding if you should enter a pot. 1. My position at the table? 2. Is my starting hand good enough? 3. If I do decide to play this hand what should my bet size be? If you've any doubts about these make sure you ask the live trainer questions in the 'Bet Sizing' class. Let me know when you've attended the 'Bet Sizing' session and we'll move on from there.
