        Hi John, This a hand I am not sure about. Villain 1 was going all in with any hand, so I waited a good one to call him, Is that right?

          Hi poker790win Firstly, I give you twoumbup:umbup: for being observant. Getting reads on your opponents is very important - excellent work! Regarding the actual hand, I think I would fold in this spot. The risk is just too great. Even if you knew that the other player had 72o (worst hand), you are only about a 60% favorite, and he might have picked up a real hand. You have a deep stack, so I would only call him with big pairs AA, KK and QQ, JJ if he were getting all in every hand. Had he simply raised, then reraising him would have been good as you expect to be ahead. AJo from mid postion is a great hand to open with if it folds to you. Against "normal" players, I would fold if facing a raise. If you are in the blinds and the co or btn raises, then I would reraise with AJo. Nice pot though, and I am very happy to see you observing your opponentsumbup: Roland GTX

            Thank you Roland GTX, I didn`t know I was only 60% favorite with AJ. I completed the Quiz and attended 'Getting Started With Pokerstars' live training. Can I start my bankroll now? umbup:

              Hi poker790win!

              Congrats on passing 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 FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Don't worry if you lose this first buy-in as you will be able to earn another buy-in 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 analyze them for you.

              Also, please attend the 'Bet Sizing' live training session. This session can be found daily in the Live Training section.

              Please let me know when you receive the buy-in and attend the training session.

                    Hi poker,

                    Until you gain more experience I recommend you leave short handed tables and only play with a fuller table. For your hands here:

                    A8o... raise is fine in a 4 handed game, from out of position here I'd like a bigger raise, .10-.12c to go. Flop c-bet is fine but fold to his raise, we're in bad shape vs. his range of hands here.

                          Hi poker790win!

                          Did you attend the Bet Sizing live training session?

                          It's also time to now attend the Cash Basics live training session.

                          Also, study the Cash Game course and once your happy 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.

                          Once you've passed the quiz and attended the live training sessions, post back here and we'll continue.

                              Congrats on passing the course. The next buy-in will be credited to your account within the next 24 hours. Remember to use the information learned in the course and training sessions when you use this buy-in to play the 1/2 cent full ring tables ONLY.
                              Playing any other type of format will prevent you from being able to receive any additional buy-ins from this promotion.

                              Good luck at the tables and please let us know what happens while playing, especially if there are any hands that you have problems with or lose the buy-in with.
