        Hi Raiser, Here is the difficult hand you asked me to post using the Hand Replayer: It's a hand with Queen Eight suited (d). An initial raise got reraised. I called because I thought my cards to be strong. 9h 3d 9s on the flop, small draw for flush or two pair/boat. With 2h on the turn I folded. What do you think of my play here? I'm not completely happy bout it.. I just completed the three courses as well, "introduction", "bet sizing" and "cash games", from HoRRoR77. I hope we can move on to the next step. Cheers, Tom

            Hi TomJack,

            Q8 is a very weak hand in this situation facing a raise and reraise... in the beginner coursework as you go through this process, there should be a starting hand chart... review this closely when you get to it, that will give you a starting framework that will keep you out of bad spots like this. Also fold on the flop, you could easily be drawing dead to running cards here, and are a very longshot to win now.

                  Excellent! Now that you have passed the quiz your first buy-in will be credited into your account within 24 hours. Remember you can earn up to a total of $8 with this promotion. Use this first buy-in to then only play the 1/2 cent real money tables only on PokerStars. Do not play higher buy-ins than this until instructed to do so. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as we will credit you with another should this happen. Use all that you have learned so far to try some real money games (1/2 cent tables). Post any hands that you have difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyse them for you. Also, attend the 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section. When you've done all this we will move you onto the next stage. Well done on the progress so far! Raiser umbup:

                    Hi Raiser, I feel quite a bit embarrassed cause I lost my $2 buy in.. Played too much hands in the end I think.. I did however follow the Bet Sizing live training. The most difficult hand so far is this one, where I have Ace-Seven Suited: Should I re-do this step or can we still continue?! Cheers, Tom

                      Hi TomJack1, No worries, I'll ask one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at this for you and offer some feedback. Once he does this we can continue on from there. Raiser umbup:

                        Hi TomJack1

                        This was an interesting hand with several study points worth noting.

                        Firstly, preflop you are facing an early position limper and raiser. Playing from early position is usually an indication of a fairly strong starting hand. A7s is much too weak to reraise in this position. I recommend folding since you are not going to be flopping a flush draw often enough to make the a profitable spot to play this hand. If you do decide to re-raise I recommend going with the standard bet size which is 3x plus 1x for each caller. Your min-raise just builds the pot and often entices even more players to join the action.

                        Secondly, be very careful about calling large bets on the turn or river. Without a good read, I would give the villain credit for have a strong hand. You have top pair, but a weak kicker. You should fold these spots and wait for a better situation.

                        GL and have fun at the tables!
